DIRT CHURCH RADIO - PODCAST

1 hour 52 minutes | Sep 1, 2021

HOSTED BY MATT RAYMENT AND EUGENE BINGHAM 

Barefoot Ted McDonald is a shaman. In 2009 he became a central character in Christopher McDougall’s best selling book about natural  running and movement, Born To Run. Ted was initially portrayed (perhaps unfairly) as the quintessential ugly American, a brash, larger than life counterpoint to the retiring Tarahumara, the legendary distance runners whom McDougall’s party had ventured to the Copper Canyons of Northern Mexico to engage with. Ted’s arc formed the emotional pivot of the book when McDougall described the bond between Ted and Manuel Luna, a Tarahumara man whose son had been brutally murdered by a drug cartel. Since the book’s publication  Barefoot Ted (as he is now widely known) has become synonymous with barefoot running and an advocate for us investigating our atavistic potential for natural movement.

USING SELF-EXPERIMENTATION TO IDENTIFY HOW TO OPTIMIZE YOUR FITNESS & LIFESTYLE - In today’s Fit Life After 40 talk I have the pleasure of speaking with Ted McDonald (Barefoot Ted), who is an ultra-runner, barefoot runner, primal life coach and entrepreneur based in Santa Barbara, California. Ted has played a major role in defining and popularizing the natural running movement and is also one of the characters featured in the best-selling book, “Born to Run”, where the natural endurance running movement first gained some notoriety.
