Back in August I traveled to Colorado to participate in a panel discussion at the Newton Running National Retailers Summit. The keynote speaker at the event was physiotherapist Blaise Dubois, who is an advocate for minimalist footwear. Blaise knows the scientific literature on running injuries as well as anybody I have met, and has treated runners ranging from Olympians to recreational runners for over ten years. He’s one of the few medical professionals that I know who actually writes prescriptions for racing flats for his patients!
I was fortunate enough to have recorded the audio of Blaise’s lecture, and he was kind enough to give me permission to post the audio as a podcast here on Runblogger. Below are links to the audio at Itunes, as well as a direct link to a downloadable MP3 file. Blaise is an informative, dynamic, and entertaining speaker, and I encourage you to give the lecture a listen.
