There and Back Again

Yesterday, Greg and I ran in the Bunker Hill Roadrace which is a great 8K (5 Mile) run through Charlestown. We did so to benefit a really fantastic nonprofit that the owner of Charlestown Yoga, one of the studios I teach at, runs. The organization is called There and Back Again and it provides yoga and other whole body therapies to any veteran of any combat. The program has proven extremely effective in easing the challenge of reintegration into civilian life for vets suffering from PTSD and the associated symptoms such as  insomnia, anxiety, anger, depression, isolation, inability to concentrate and many others. Please visit their website to learn more or  donate!

What you can’t see in the above picture is that I ran this race in my new Vibram Bikilas

While I love mine, the jury is still out on the benefits of barefoot or nearly barefoot running as you can see in this article from the NY Times last week. What is your favorite foot gear?
