Some of you out there have no doubt asked for her help. This month - fifteen years ago - Joey Garcia started dispensing advice on relationships inside the pages of the Sacramento News and Review. Since then she's helped countless couples, has been asked out by readers more times than she can count, and has learned a thing or two along the way. I had the chance to catch up with her recently, take a listen below...
I had the pleasure of taking to the skies with one of the featured acts at this year's California Capital Airshow - Tora! Tora! Tora!, a group that recreates the attack on Pearl Harbor.
"We have dynamite, smoke, it looks like mayhem out there, and that's what Pear Harbor was, but it's a very coordinated act - I've been doing it almost 30 years," said Tora Pilot Colonel Mike Burke with the Commemorative Air Force. "It's a history lesson...(we need to) make sure the United States is always ready, always prepared."
See pictures of my flight below...and some other shots from Mather Field.
iPod? Check. Water bottle? Check. Shoes? Leave them at home. Michael Sandler, the author of "Barefoot Running: How To Run Light And Free By Getting In Touch With The Earth" is in town tonight holding a presentation at Fleet Feet Sacramento on the ins and outs of losing the shoes.
It's strange at first, but it does make sense.
"When you're fully barefoot, you're running 'awarefoot' - you have more nerve endings on the bottom of your feet than anywhere else on the human body," said Sandler "the first time you hit your heel into the ground, it hurts...and what you quickly do is shift forward onto the forefoot - which is the springy part of the foot - and you run extra light."
Those interested in "running bare" need to start slow, with 200 yards on the first day, and an additional 100 yards every day after that.
"Sounds ridiculously slow, but that's a 10K in only 3 months fully barefoot, and it's a full marathon in just over a year," said Sandler.
Sandler's presentation will be at Fleet Feet Sacramento tonight at 7PM. For some tips and tricks and a lesson on proper barefoot form, see the videos below or visit RunBare.com.
