% of waking life spent in Earth Runners:  100% either in the Sandals or wearing barefoot shoes with the Earth Runners DIY Earthing Kit.

Advice for those new to minimalist footwear, wanting to try Earth Runners:  don’t doubt, just do it!

Favorite athletic accomplishment from last year:  I have been an athlete all my life, the last year I have been focussing more on enjoying and less on performing. So my favorite athletic accomplishment has been enjoying every activity I do, I found all my travels to be great for that :)

Active goals for this year:  Help as many people as possible to live a healthy life, and traveling the world while doing so

Parting words:  Be good to you.
