Happy New Years!! Are you thinking about running more in 2019? Before you go buy a new pair of sneaks, discover if minimalist running may be right for you.

David Pietrowski was an avid runner until he suddenly started to experience excessive knee pain. Not sure what to do, he started to take cortisone injections in hopes that it would help alleviate the pain he was feeling. After a couple failed attempts, Dave thought it was time to give up running altogether, luckily for him that was until he learned about minimalist running. Six years later, David is now running the Boston Marathon & other trail marathons, while he wears his go-to minimalist running shoes, Vibram FiveFingers.

Ready to give minimalist running a try? Join us for an evening to explore all there is to know about transitioning into wearing minimalist footwear. David will discuss the following topics:

His background on running & how he started to run again after the issues he was faced with
Transitioning into Minimalist Running: Keep in mind that everyone is different & that it may take longer for others to transition!
What running form you should have: Putting an end to all heel striking!
Minimalist studies that David has participated in with the Spaulding Running Center, including videos of strike pressure
This event is FREE to attend!! The FIRST 10 people through the door will receive a FREE DAY PASS to Killington Resort! All attendees will be entered to win a raffle for a free pair of Vibram FiveFingers.

Light Snacks & Beverages will be available throughout the session.

We look forward to seeing you there!
