Barefoot Ken Bob is coming to NYC. For those who don't know Barefoot Ken Bob, he's a legendary barefoot runner, and he's putting on a clinic on June 8th. Please take a moment to appreciate how lucky we are that everyone comes through NYC giving (free) clinics. Here is his website: http://barefootkenbob.com/

DETAILS:

2010 June 8 Tue
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

WEST 85th Street entrance
Central Park
New York City, New York

In Manhattan, take the B or C train to 86th street. Walk one block South on Central park West. 85th Street Entrance is on left. We will be inside the road entrance to the park, waiting for the group to assemble (the road is closed at all times except morning). From there we will walk/run a short distance to the location of the Running Barefoot Workshop.


Running Barefoot Workshop


The bottom line is the soles of our feet. If our soles hurt while walking or running barefoot, we are not moving the way we are designed to move!

If we wear earplugs while trying to learn to sing, rather than helping us improve our singing, the earplugs simply allow us to be unaware of when we are singing badly.

Our own bare soles are the two best coaches in the world, IF we are willing to listen. Bare our soles to the ground, and through the immediate, emphatic, and precise feedback, we can learn so much more about How to Run gently, than we ever dreamed possible.

And equally as important, when we are Beginning our barefoot adventure, our bare soles will tell us how much is too much, too soon.

Barefoot Ken Bob?s Running Barefoot Workshops and Fun Runs are NOT about senselessly pounding out the miles. Running Barefoot is about taking advantage of the complex network of nerve endings (senses) in the soles of our feet, so that we can learn to run better, more gently, efficiently, naturally ? not by toughening up to endure the pain, rather by responding to pain by changing the way we run so as not to cause the pain in the first place.

Footwear for Barefoot Ken Bob?s Workshops and Fun Runs


Footwear is optional. However, wearing footwear while learning to walk or run is a bit like wearing earplugs while learning to sing.

If you do bring footwear, be prepared to carry it with you while running/walking barefoot (unless you want them stolen).

Price for Barefoot Ken Bob?s Workshop and Fun Run


Still FREE! But I might not complain if you support our Friends, Affiliates, and Sponsors, and/or Donate I suggest attending the event first, then, if you can afford, donate as much as you think the event was worth to you. No negative numbers please! In case you really hated Barefoot Ken Bob?s Running Barefoot Fun Run, and/or Barefoot Ken Bob, and/or his family, and/or his pets, then donate enough money so we can leave town! (comfortably)
