Never Wipe Your Ass with a Squirrel:
A trail running, ultramarathon, and wilderness survival guide for weird folks

Never Wipe Your Ass with a Squirrel by Jason Robillard

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.

The Barefoot Running Book:

The Art and Science of Barefoot and Minimalist Shoe Running

The Barefoot Running Book Plume 2012 Edition by Jason Robillard

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

You’ve heard about barefoot running and how it can reduce injury and allow for better form. Maybe you’ve even tried it and learned how shedding those heavy, overly- manufactured shoes can make running more enjoyable. 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.

Curious about barefoot or minimalist shoe running but want some basic info before buying the book? Check out the “how to barefoot” article here at BRU.

    cartierlovejesduas When I oil pull with coconut, all of the bacteria I pulled is still in the oily residue left on my teeth. I know about coconut oil’s antibacterial properties, but I still use a good mouth rinse to make sure it all gets out and off. I think it’d be good to follow up with a rinse after brushing with this – to double check or insure the bacteria is all gone. Very excited to try this!! I’ve been using a desert essence toothpaste, which is good but still contains vegetable glycerin and isn’t made with my own love for my health. Still can’t get the hubby off Crest and blue Listerine. While he knows the fluoride in the water is waste material, and we do our best to drink clean water, he is still convinced daily toothpaste fluoride cleans teeth the best and does not damage the teeth – when I’m telling him this chemical should be reserved for dentist visits only. I’m going to get some further resources to back up your claims on the ingredients you listed in your post! Sorry to rant, lol, but thank you so much for getting this information out there!!

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you ought to write more about this issue, it
    might not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t discuss these subjects.

    To the next! Cheers!!

    I’m interested in translating your book into Spanish. I’m preparing to work on an MA and PhD in Spanish Literature and the work would be a good brush-up for me. If it is something you would be interested in let me know.

    […] The transition itself is going okay.  I think I did some good prep work – I was running in a pseudo “reduced” cheapo shoe before, and I was working on a midfoot strike in those shoes. I had already increased my cadence and shortened my stride.  I also shed the shoes and have been doing some of the exercises in “The Barefoot Running Book – Second Edition“. […]
