What do a Navajo ultra marathoning champion, a Kalahari Bushman Hunter, a Japanese monk and a Finnish paperboy have in common? They get more out of running than the rest of us do. And they’re better at it too. To find out why, come by @thenantucketproject in Greenwich CT Tuesday night to get a behind-the-scenes look into the unlimited side of human potential and my own forays into the sacred aspect of running plus see clips from my upcoming film. Link in bio.
Urgent - as in WE need your help ASAP. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (@immokalee.workers) are one of the most successful anticorporate indigenous movements in the world. (I made a film about them in 2014 called FOOD CHAINS). Their work to end violence against women is legendary. They are displaced indigenous Chiapan, Oaxacan, and Guatemalan folks working in the fields of Florida picking of all things tomatoes – one of the most important new world crops. They are gathering in New York City March 11-15 to conduct a five day fast against the wicked, brutal, policies of the fast food giant Wendys. This is not going to become another Standing Rock because it’s all taking place on Park Avenue in NYC and folks there are going to do their best to kick out our indigenous brothers and sisters from Florida. But they need press help as soon as possible. If any of you all know reporters or folks like Shaun King or anyone that can help spread the word, they don’t need people to fast for five days with them, but they do need folks to come stand in oneness. Please DM them or us ASAP. : @forestwoodward from #foodchainsfilm
Are warm-weather runners luckier? Probably. It’s going to dump snow in #NYC tonight and my long run tomorrow will be slushy at best. Icy at worst. Who’s stepped in a slush pond on the way out and had a frozen food the rest of their run? tbt to warmer winter days, in January but on trails above the #GoldenGateBridge in #SF.
