Podcast: Mark Cucuzzella on Trail Runner Nation

Mark CucuzzellaMy good friend and fellow natural running advocate Dr. Mark Cucuzzella was recently interviewed on a podcast over at Trail Runner Nation. Mark covers a great deal of ground in the hour-long interview, but perhaps the most important point that he makes is that despite all of the sound and fury of the great footwear debate, we should never forget that running is good for us and should be fun, no matter what you put on your feet. That being said, I do like Mark’s 2-week challenge – wear flat shoes that allow ground feel for two weeks and see if you like it. I, for one, can’t imagine ever going back.

To give it a listen, head on over to Mark’s interview at Trail Runner Nation.
