Beer & Running

Staples of the ancestors.

I have been away from the wagon quite a bit lately while brewing and bottling beer, traveling to see family, and dealing with a fairly ridiculous amount of hours of low paying work.  All while trying to keep current in anthropology by reading recent research and keeping up with playing music when I find time.

On the fun reading side, I was truly impressed with Christopher McDougall’s Born to Run.  If you want to know about research on humans as runners, think the athletic shoe industry is a bunch of soulless racketeers, or just think the Tarhuamara Indians of Mexico are cool, then this is a pretty good read.  If you are interested in the ever-growing barefoot or minimalist shoe movement, Barefoot Ted’s is a good place to start.
