A Raw food lifestyle proponent, who likes to take off his shoes and go for a run

Right from the outset I want to point out their I have a great deal of respect for Harley  or his alter ego Durianrider and do not deride anything he says or what he stands for.

Just some of the things that he bangs on about in regards to the Barefoot Running issue that annoys me and I’ll just take the opportunity to say what I think is any good podcaster would.

 

Bare Foot running

The more the darker side of what I continue to stress in regards to my advocacy of understanding minimalist or barefoot running is the whole industry behind manufacturing sports footwear.

It is based on marketing lies and continues to take advantage of those less fortunate and vulnerable to corporate greed.

It is not fair to just target one particular company but when ever overseas manufacturing is taken on board by corporations it generally means that the target is less manufacturing costs. Now this in any industry is quite acceptable profit, is the name of the game, but not at the expense of the workers involved.

The continuing plight of underpaid and exploited workers in overseas factories for sports footwear and the like is unacceptable and I find totally deplorable.

Even as a sustainable and conscientious decision for the health and betterment of the planet we do not need to fill up rubbish tips with unnecessary” worn-out sneakers”

Being a barefoot runner can be seen as an un-normal way of doing things, but what if you are barefoot runner and a raw food enthusiast at the same time.

Perhaps that means you are away out left barefoot hippie, but what if a trained journalists with a penchant for getting to the facts and figures hails this way of life and lives it would that give it any more credibility.it’sRaw food

Let me introduce Andrew and his website www.raw-food-health.net by way of an interview that Andrew

 

graciously gave me recently from Asia, where he is now residing and enjoying all the good fruits and sunshine that a raw food lifestyle proponent could hope for.

The Ethical questions and practical considerations of being a vegan runner

I experimented with some audio on the run I do apologize there is a bit of wind noise and clicking sounds I could not get rid of. I have been very determined to get on top of all the challenges that learning how to get a Podcast up and running throws at you. It is not only the technical side of it but also the time commitment and dare I say Planning,that goes into getting an episode out.

I have listen to heaps of other peoples shows and never thought on the mechanics of putting something together that is presentable as a finished product. I have done audio and video on my blog watzzupsport for years  which I have now retired. but it is another kettle of fish as they say to get a work flow around a weekly or biweekly show.

When I get more comfortable with the audio and other consideration I will be able to concentrate on the content. I speak in this episode about the ethical issues I found myself dealing with as a vegan and using animal hides and ointments of an animal source.

Barefoot Ted Born to Run

Play

A Barefoot runner is seen to be an oddity amongst a sea of motion controlled expensive footwear. The reality is that we were born to run and to run without the technology to stop us from “injuring” ourselves. The need for shoes in a work place environment has obviously to be taken into consideration, but the need to strap our feet into the latest footwear from the Nike sweatshop factory to be able to go out for a run is very far from the truth.

I have used an interview with a pioneer of the barefoot lifestyle Barefoot ted from the

Advendure Edge Radio Podcast

as he talks about the book BORN TO RUN by Christopher McDougall.  It is a good read and sets out to show how we evolved to be efficient long distance runners.

Grant is a Raw Food Endurance Athlete who I know from the popular forum for  Raw Food

This is the second interview that I have done, and I recorded this ages ago, I do not know if I would be described as a masochist, or just plain stubborn, but there seems to be a lot of beating your head against a brick wall, getting to grips with the tools to deliver a podcast.

Pose method of running

Play

I spoke with Peter Korsos about how he used the Pose running method to help his daughter walk and eventually run.

I thought it was a fitting topic to start off this podcast as it fits in with the message I like to carry, and that is one of what ever is your problem, you do not give up on working toward a solution.

Learning to look outside the box is a trait to be cultivated, the road less traveled can be a daunting journey but for those who travel it, great things can happen.

The audio is not pristine with Peters voice has a mic popping noise but I hope you can listen to the great story and wonderful dedication to getting a solution that is behind the interview.
