I talk with Bretta Riches of RunForefoot.com about proper running technique. Bretta was experiencing injuries as a heel striker, and made the transition to a more natural style of forefoot running. Since making the switch she's had less injuries and runs faster with less effort.

“I like speed, I do 15 x 400 meter repeats. I’m a big fan of intervals. To get faster you need to run faster. I’m not a fan of the long slow distance runs because I don’t want to get used to slowing down again. The goal for me is to adopt a quicker pace, which feels a lot different. The goal is to align my body to adopt a quicker pace.”
“My running feels much smoother when I run this way.”
“A lot of people make the mistake of pushing off too much with their toes and feet. The feet essential should act as passive platforms that prevent you from falling down.”
I talk with Tim Noakes about whether a low-carb diet can improve endurance performance. Tim thinks the answer could be yes.

I talk with Dr. Ray McClanahan about the importance of proper footwear. Dr. Ray tells about the mechanics of the foot and how important it is to allow it to function naturally. We also discuss Dr. Ray's running and how it has improved since he started to follow a Paleo-style diet. Dr. Ray is a 13 min 5k runner, and gives some great tips on how to achieve fast times while respecting your body.

In this episode I talk with Dr. Nick Campitelli about a 2 year long case study where he demonstrated an increase in arch height from running in minimalist shoes. For the past several years he has been treating running injuries in patients by fixing their form and transitioning them to minimalist shoes. Having treated runners with all types of injuries through conservative measures with orthotics and shoe gear changes to reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, Dr. Campitelli has brought what works best and is most current to his practice as well as the Akron and Cleveland running communities.

I talk with Zach Bitter about how he maintains a low-carb lifestyle while smashing American Records at 100 miles and 200k. We talk about why he went low-carb and how it helps fuel his running.
In this episode I talk with a recent convert to paleo and Boston Marathoner, Katie Strohschein. Katie just completed her first Boston Marathon in a time of 3:11, while following a mostly paleo style diet. Listen to how she took over an hour off of her marathon time by switching to a paleo diet, and adding more structure to her workouts.
