Episode 68 – Oblinkin!

Welcome to Episode 68!  This week, download here, Geeks talk with Pete Larson (@Oblinkin), our resident shoe/form expert from Runblogger.com.  Pete is a well accomplished runner (and a modest one at that) who also happens to be a scientist! This week’s discussion revolved around the ‘holy war’ between barefoot/minimalist and ‘heeled’ shoe runners. Pete does a good job of explaining the minimalism “spectrum” as well as mention the similarities, and differences in running over the years – interestingly enough, that is part of the content of the book he is co-authoring scheduled to be released this summer. Oh, and check out some pictures of Pete’s lab from a Runner’s World photo shoot.

We are also playing with the idea of creating weekly fitness challenges for our listeners. These hopefully will be simply yet challenging fitness goals for all us to try to achieve as we all work towards our collective goal of fitness in 2012. Let us know what you think about this idea.

Until next time, leave feedback on iTunes,  email questions and comments to feedback [at] GeeksInRunningShoes [dot] com or just ‘like us’ on facebook! Also follow us on Twitter, Jason (@guttocutwl) and Ray (@adeyemiking).
