Here’s there Instagram for reference: @generaladmission_ca

Remember this quarantine time is a particularly unifying time because we’re all under the same constraints. We’ve been progressing this work deliberately and folks from around the world have been joining in on the fun. 

Today’s training is for everyone. I hope you’ll join me.

We opened this discussion by laying out a troubling scenario in Part 1. Everyone is running and almost no one is aware that they're missing the standard (or what the standard is to begin with). In Part 2, we unlocked the free, ever present potential energy inside of our relationship with gravity. And, just recentl ...

In middle school, I wrote an email to Reggie Waller. It felt like a letter. Back then things were opposite. Mail was annoying and emails were exciting.

My favorite section of the newspaper as a kid was the real estate section. I was fascinated. My brother would be devouring the sports section and I was looking at a “colonial masterpiece with servants quarters of Mulholland Drive”. I realize that might be as weird as me telling you about it. I did notice something, ...

They come in different forms, but if we’d learn more from those who came before us it might save us some heartache. Here’s sage advice from a great American hero.

We’ve been taking a much needed look at the mechanics of running and specifically how to align runners more closely with nature. In Part 1, we set the table with why the poor feedback loop of running, lack of a standard, and a strong quantitative (rather than qualitative) orientation of the running community has resulted ...
