As well as the run every 2nd and 4th week there is a good quality market held in the area, reasonable price produce and other treats are available

Welcome to another episode of my podcast. Quick and sometimes not so quick opinions, observations,interviews, and tips around a barefoot, raw food athletic lifestyle.

I got to have a quick chat to another Minimalist / Barefoot runner Andy Ward from the Bunyaville Trail Runners   who enjoy the trails of Bunyaville State Forest located on Brisbane’s northside

Andy makes the point that taking it easy and make the transition into natural form running a process the body can adjust to without doing damage.

New Farm parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 7am in New Farm Park, Brisbane, Australia.

It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that’s for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

 

As always look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you may have about barefoot running or plant based nutrition

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”

Pose method of running

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.
