Saturday, April 9
• Naked Run
Meeting point: Book Passage, Corte Madera
Join Christopher McDougall, Eric Orton, and Sunny Blende for a run before the Born to Run event at Book Passage. Come barefoot, nearly barefoot, or laced and cushioned to your heart’s content. Don’t worry about pace or distance — you can go as far and as comfortably as you please.
The Naked Run will take place on the beautiful bike path right outside Book Passage. Rather than running to the store from Presidio, as we’d contemplated, we’ll minimize the logistical hassles and do and out-and-back run which begins and ends right at the bookstore.
Eric Orton — the endurance coach extraordinaire who trained McDougall for the race with the Tarahumara and still coaches him today.
Sunny Blende — the endurance sport nutritionist, Marin County masters athlete, and every bonking runner’s best friend
