Perhaps I’m feeling inspired with the El Segundo Run For Education 5K this morning (if you read this early, the race starts at 8am and it isn’t too late to come down and register at the race kiosk with the Intrepid Athletics Team). Anyways, I got to doing some research in preparation for today’s race and I might have stumbled on one of the most valuable running videos I’ve seen to date, and I want to share it.
A huge thanks to Dr. Mark Cucuzzella owner of Two River Treads in Shepherdstown, WV (the first minimalist running shoe store in the nation) and Director of the comprehensive website Natural Running Center for posting the video above and so much other helpful information for runners all over the world. He and his partner Bill Katovsky, along with the many other contributing authors for the Natural Running Center, are leading the charge in the push towards better educated runners and minimalist footwear that is now becoming more mainstream. He packed so much information in the video above that I have watched it close to 5 times over the past few days and every time I watch it I feel like I pick up something else. Watch. Learn. Practice. Train. Improve.
To all my Intrepids running in the El Segundo Run For Education 5K this morning, we’re meeting in front of the Main St. Cafe on the corner of Pine and Main, just 1 block south of El Segundo High School and the start line. As of the time I’m writing this post here’s the list of Intrepid runners. Please wish them luck or cheer them on before you head in for the 9am workout.
