% of waking life spent in Earth Runners: 60% barefoot, 35% earth runners.
Advice for those new to minimalist footwear, wanting to try Earth Runners: People considering sandaling up be smart, be safe, start slow. You’re not gonna start with the thinnest model if you're new to barefoot, barefoot is a journey don't rush it. Spend plenty of time mobilizing and strength training to restore foot function.
Favorite athletic accomplishment from last year: Leading team Israel into 9th place in the world in flag football as the head strength and conditioning coach. Being named defensive captain and leading in sacks in the local tackle football team.
Active goals for this year: Get to a 1 armed pull-up, Be the first person to do the whole Israel trail barefoot (with my handy ERs as a backup)
