Weekend Link Love – Edition 161

The other day, Sean Croxton (of Underground Wellness) and I had a little chat, ate some fish, and did some pullups together. We filmed everything, if you’d like to watch.

Neanderthals usually get pegged as poor walkers and runners on account of their compact bodies and stubby lower legs, but more recently anthropologists are figuring that their shorter tibia were well-suited for walking the steep hills of Europe. Chris, got any pronounced brow ridges in your family?

Who said barefoot runners weren’t classy? Bob Ewing (of Primal Challenge fame) will be running the DC Marine Corps Marathon barefoot while wearing a tuxedo, not to highlight the plight of starving Wall Street execs but rather to raise $5,000 for a great cause – a charity that saves people’s lives who have cancer. Check out the video, which features popular barefoot enthusiasts Chris McDougall, Erwan Le Corre, John Durant, and Barefoot Ken Bob.

Speaking of the Primal Challenge, it’s featuring a couple new, very impressive success stories: meet Scott and Curt. Great job, guys!

The Montreal Paleo meet-up group got featured in the Montreal Gazette. It was actually a pretty positive story, although the “caveman life expectancy” canard inevitably reared its head. Also, I think I see a Grok shirt in that pic.

Our good friends Bill and Hayley of The Food Lovers Primal Palate, whose recipes we regularly feature in WLL, just released their first recipe book. “Make It Paleo” is fantastic, the recipes are delicious, and whoever wrote the foreword to the book did a great job. Check it out.

Melissa McEwen writes about another area in which hunter-gatherers have us beat: frequency of sex. (Although it wasn’t mentioned, I wonder if the same is true for “duration.”)

Funny because it’s (sadly) true.
