How to Wear Tarahumara Huarache Running Sandals

The Tarahumara Indians (Raramuri) of Northern Mexico are famous for their long-distance mountain running abilities. They run in seemingly simple sandals made out of old tire treads. I learned how to make and wear them. They are an excellent running shoe with ancient roots.

You can usually trust indigenous design when it comes to active footwear. These sandals and others similar have been around for 1000s of years, and I know why. They have no frills, just exactly what you need and not a bit more. Elegant design.

Run For Your Life (documentary)

A documentary about commitment, passion, believing and following every single dream in your being.

Back in the ’60s, the New York Road Runners Club was just a small group of men who ran on the streets of the Bronx. It took one eccentric first-generation Jewish immigrant from Transylvania to turn the NYRR into the largest organization of its kind in the world.

It was the 26-mile, five-borough marathon, first held in 1976 during the city’s financial crisis, that cemented Lebow’s legacy. With a flair for showmanship, Lebow leveraged every opportunity, even the 1980 transit strike, to promote the benefits of running.

With New York City Marathon winners Bill Rodgers, Alberto Salazar, and Grete Waitz on hand, as well as many of Lebow’s former colleagues, filmmaker Judd Ehrlich (the Emmy-nominated Mayor of the West Side) takes an affectionate look at a New York hero who inspired runners worldwide to go the distance.

Eddie Izzard – Marathon Man

Episode 1

 

Part 1

 

 

Eddie Izzards new show “Marathon Man”.

 

Eddie Izzard is an actor, comedian and part-time transvestite, but no one thought he was much of an athlete. Until he decided to go for a run – a very, very long run.

 

This three-part documentary series follows Eddie rising to the challenge for Sport Relief and running an astonishing 43 marathons in 51 days. Covering 1166 brutal miles around the United Kingdom he runs a marathon a day, six days a week for eight weeks. Professional athletes would struggle with this task, but for Eddie, an out-of-shape 47 year old, it seems impossible. He had never run a timed marathon before and gives himself just over five weeks to train.
