Never Wipe Your Ass with a Squirrel:
A trail running, ultramarathon, and wilderness survival guide for weird folks
The Squirrel Wipe project is an unorthodox primer to the adventurous world of trail running and ultramarathons by barefoot runner Jason Robillard. The tips provided throughout the book range from practical to weird as Robillard sets out to teach others how to run ridiculously long distances through the wilderness based on his endless self-experimentation. This book goes where no other ultrarunning book dares by covering topics like testicle shaving and methods to get rid of annoying training partners. This book replicates a drunken conversation at a local pub versus the stuffy academic “how-to” tone of other similar titles. WARNING: THIS BOOK MAY OFFEND SENSITIVE OR OVERLY SERIOUS PEOPLE!
Available as an eBook, check out a free sample here (sample uses e-Junkie to distribute the .pdf file.) Alternatively, get some of the content for free by reading the original blog posts over at my Squirrel Wipe blog.

Ditch those cushiony running shoes—they’re holding you back and hurting your feet!

Regardless of your expertise level, Jason Robillard—a leading expert on barefoot running education and director of the Barefoot Running University—synthesizes the latest research to ease you from barefoot walking to slow running to competitive and trail running vis-à-vis simple drills, training plans, and useful hints from fellow barefoot runners.
