Happy Hump Day! Is it really already Wednesday? This week is flying by. Honestly every day seems to fly by since we have moved and I don’t feel like I am getting THAT much done. Still so much to unpack, and a race to run Saturday! (Which I have not trained for in the slightest, oh well!)
Today I want to talk about a hot topic. Barefoot running. I have read articles, blog posts, debates, and discussions, but I have yet to totally form my own opinion. In my mind, this is how the idea runs through my head….
“Well, I have TERRIBLE running form. I run heavy and pronate. Maybe barefoot running would teach me how to run properly? Also it couldn’t hurt to have stronger leg muscles and feel the freedom of barefoot running….But…I tend to NOT be a bandwagon type of person. After all, it took me over a year of refusals to finally read the Twilight series….Also these Vibram things are expensive, and I have very sensitive feet, and I just know I will step on something sharp and hurt myself….not to mention the fact that the debate is still heavily out on if these ape feet are even good for you or not….”
Yeah, I have a college degree and was allowed to teach children. Scary inside my head huh?
Here are a couple of the articles I have read if you would like to form your own opinion on the subject:
hhhmmm….I don’t know about you but I am still totally on the fence. Anyone have any thoughts or personal experience? Why you love them or why you hate them? Convince me why I need to try this or never ever do it?
While you are formulating your thoughts on why or why not….take a look at this!
There is something kind of cool happening soon!
MY RUN, the Terry Hitchcock Story is coming to movie theaters nationwide for a one night event on March 31 at 7:00
We’re all running a marathon one way or another. Whether it is staying afloat as a single, working parent, battling a disease or trying to conquer a fear, it all involves a fight. Join us for an unforgettable, inspirational story about a man who ran 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days to raise awareness about the struggle of losing a loved one and becoming a single parent.
Terry Hitchcock battling the grief of losing his wife to breast cancer, sets out on a journey to bring awareness and a voice to the struggles faced by single parent families and their children. Narrated by Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton, this powerful and uplifting documentary exemplifies a commitment to something greater than yourself and achieving something deemed impossible.
Following the feature, audiences will take a deeper look into the story through interviews with the star Terry Hitchcock and his son, support team member Chris Hitchcock. A portion of proceeds from the MY RUN Premiere event will benefit the Livestrong Foundation. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased at www.fathomevents.com/myrun.
I don’t know about you but this looks pretty cool! I love a good true story. Having a mother who almost died of cancer makes things like this very interesting and inspiring to me. I hope you will take a look and consider going!
QOTD: Ok, so, Vibrams. Let me have it!
