Hey Brian,i just read your article on how you eliminated your Patellar Tendonitis. It’s an amazing article thanks for sharing it. Nevertheless I have two questions:1. After eliminating patellar tendonitis did it ever reappear?2. Some other people do the exercises with just one leg. Is it better to do it with two legs? Or where is the difference?
Hi, thanks for the questions. 1. Yes, I definitely still have flare ups, especially ... Read More
Hi I have a question about running. I’ll be doing a super spartan race in September. I plan on wearing my trek sports for it, I’m pretty confident that they will work on any surface that gets thrown at them during the race. My question is this, when running on different types of terrain how should your technique change. For example going from really sloppy mud to gravel to grass. Is there a video or article you would recommend?
Thanks for the question, Dan! I'm going to see if our resident distance-running ... Read More

I have been running about 3 miles 3 times a week on and off since October. I want to do a half marathon in the end of April. I recently ran 6 miles in my vibram five fingers no problem. I am starting a training schedule this week. My older brother ran a half marathon in his vibram five fingers and said that they were holding him back and that it would be a really bad idea for me to run a half marathon with them. I feel my body has done a good job adapting and I feel great when I run in them. My brother and I have the same type of running posture.. What should I do? What were your experiences running a half marathon in five fingers?
Great question! Like anything else, you really want to properly train your feet ... Read More
