RBG 37 Snake Bite, Natural Running Center and David’s Penis

In today’s episode #37, I interview Tommy Housworth, who shares his story about being bitten by a snake and the journey from there to barefoot running (including his gratitude for coming out of the snake bite alive). I also interview Dr. Mark Cucuzzella, founder of the incredible resource NaturalRunningCenter.com.

This episode also features the most epic Caity Monologue Rant to date on the show. It’s so epic that my intern split it in half and put the last bit (about David’s Penis) at the end. So if you’re not into hearing about penises, you can just leave that last part out of your listening pleasure.

    Very nice episode! Thanks for sharing the NaturalRunningCenter.com link – lots of useful info is there.

    About the statue, your reaction (as US society) is diferent to ours (Europeans) because US society is not based anymore on Greek & Rome classic culture, as ours still is in some parts of Europe.

    Remedy for that is a visit in Greece, Italy and other parts of EU this year :-) or a visit to a virtual museum, to get to know our cultural “roots” (with greek myths and other mind’s openess).

    I had similar problem, when I’ve started to use trekking sticks (similar to those used for skiing) when I was walking in mountains – about 18 years ago. Every person that I’ve met on trail had to ask me the same question, “where are your skis” :-)
    So now, I’m used to this kind curiosity/ “stupidity” :-) and I do what I think is best for me in certain moment.

    Today, I’ve just had a nice barefoot run (about 2.5km).

    Never the less, the feel of the ground while being barefoot pulls me in to the habit of life without shoes.

    Thank you for your comments! Yes, I love the idea of visiting Greece, Italy and other parts of Europe! You’re absolutely right – connecting with our cultural roots is important… normalizing more than just nudity.

    I love what you wrote about trekking sticks. They’re now common but I imagine people had no idea what to make of them back then. :)

    I’m also delighted that you had a barefoot run and that you enjoy it so much! Keep it up!

    Best,
    ~Caity
