Our Old School session was canceled today due to inclimate weather.
Oddly enough, I ended up going for a “barefoot”, shirtless, run across the Brooklyn Bridge instead. Turned out one of my influences, Erwan Le Corre, was in NYC doing some promotions for his MovNat system. I found out about the event yesterday through John Durant’s barefoot running club in NYC.
There were media crews from Japan, Norway, and the states there filming and interviewing us about this “trend” of eating paleolithic foods and getting fit through natural movements.
After an introduction on camera, Erwan removed his shirt and shoes to lead a group of about 10 of us on a run across the Brooklyn Bridge.
Of course the media likes exciting stories, so us running in our “barefoot” vibram five fingers wasn’t enough.
The media wanted all of us to take off our shirts as well!
So, we did.
We ended up running two miles in all, back and forth over the bridge, with cars beeping in support and Erwan leading the charge (No pictures yet, but these should be something to see 🙂 ).
After warming back up a bit we headed out to the park where Erwan took us through an introduction to his natural movement course (which he usually teaches in climates such as Brazil and Mexico, mind you, not NYC during a snowstorm! This guy is HARDCORE, he was outside for a couple hours teaching us and never had on more than a pair of shorts and a hoodie, most of the time no shoes on either!).
So, pretty cool morning.
