Yoga and Running / Berryman Marathon Saturday

Header from

Those of you who have been reading the blog for a while know that I started doing Yoga about 8 months ago and how strongly I believe in it as a complement to running, you may remember that I included it as a blog entry subject back in September. Yesterday I was breezing through the June issue of Runners World and saw that they had an article on how Yoga makes you "stronger, sharper and less injury-prone." I couldn't agree with them more! They also featured a group called Runner's Yoga 90210, founded by Angie Stewart, "where marathoners, beginner runners and even members of the UCLA track team gather in Beverly Hill's Roxbury Park for a 20 to 30 minute run followed by 45 to 55 minutes of yoga in a nearby studio." I actually have a similar routine, each week on Tuesday and Thursday I run for 45 - 60 minutes before my morning Yoga class and feel incredible after I'm done. It's a great back-to-back combo that I highly recommend. For more about Yoga and Running visit the Yoga For Runners Section at

This Saturday is the Berryman Marathon and 50 Mile Race down near Berryman, MO in the Mark Twain National Forest. This event holds a special place in my heart as it was where I ran my first ultramarathon back in 2006. This is my last scheduled race for sometime as I shift my focus to my new position at Fitness Together - St. Louis so I'm really looking forward to having a great time. Berryman holds a lot of memories as it is a special place not only for me individually but also for Mindy and I when we were together. Her smile, kindness and enthusiasm at "her aid station" will be missed by all.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there! :-)
Hope all of you are well,

Good luck brother and have fun. Its always a treat to run the race we cut our teeth on. Get your new job going and hopefully we'll see out there this fall. Later.

Purchasing shoes for running and jogging should be done with consideration. Foot health is vital for anyone that is very active such as an avid runner or jogger. Finding the correct shoes that will properly support the feet takes through consideration. While there are a number of shoes that are available on the market not all of them are the same and not all of them are of high quality.
