The Flourishing Experiment

Casey Kerrigan, MD, who is internationally recognized for her peer-reviewed published research on running and walking gait and the effects of footwear (in addition to starting the Biomechanics Lab at the University of Virginia), shares why our preconceived notions about shoes are completely wrong—and she has the science to back it up. She discusses what shoes typically don’t have and what two specific assets they need to have.

Dr. Kerrigan also explores why the shoe industry hasn’t embraced the latest technology, what the number one physical disability for the elderly is, and how working your calf muscles will help you run more efficiently and possibly faster.

Serena Marie, RD, and Kari talk about why eating protein is especially important for athletes in heavy training cycles or for perimenopausal or postmenopausal women. They chat about why protein is so key for middle-aged men as well.

Kari shares the science behind dedicating a day to random acts of kindness versus spreading acts out over several days during this episode’s Mind Fuel for Your Fuel Belt segment. She also discusses gratitude letters.

Don’t miss out! Kari’s beta Flourishing Skills and Accountability groups will offer a time to come together with kindred spirits to learn how to apply scientifically proven skills to increase your positivity ratio. Groups begin June 5, 2018, and will run (pun intended) for six weeks. These are intimate groups where you get to learn and apply skills among a safe, welcoming, small group of people.
