soulfocussports 46 years since Dr. Tommie Smith and Dr. John Carlos held their fists in protest of inequality at the 68 Olympic Games. To this day the IOC has banned them from any IOC function. It was a brave act of peaceful protest of a very righteous cause ...seeking equality and freedom for all people. Repeal the ban. Too many similar themes still run through politics, sports and race in our world today. Hit up the link in the profile or below and sign the petition to put the IOC on notice. @iaaf @usatf #fistsoffreedom #instagood #speedcity #civilrights #edgeofsports #equality http://chn.ge/1vJEeS5 4d

soulfocussports First it was called Houlihans to Houlihans from Sausalito to SF. Then it was Emerald Nuts and then Across the Bay 12k. Now have the pleasure of taking the reigns on this SF tradition and adding it to our @representrunning series. I want to thank Dave Rhody for being one of best race directors of all time, for entrusting us with his baby and for showing us the way. Across the Bay may become a 15k to fit our 415 branding, plus we'll be adding a 415k event for the community. Sad to leave the Marin 415k behind, but really excited to continue the tradition on April 26th 2015. #runlocal #sf #415 #werunthebay #bayarea #dontstop 2w

soulfocussports Today’s contestant on #HalosOnHeroes is a dynamo & perfect for #thanksgiving Zatopek was distance runner from the former Czechoslovakia.  As an athlete he won 9 Olympic Medals, 7 of them gold, and 3 Golds in the 1952 Olympics. (5k, 10k, & Marathon) I believe that marathon was his first.  That’s freaking crazy town in itself.  I initially gravitated to Zatopek’s story based on descriptors of his toughness.  Every picture you find of him running there seems to be this god-awful grimace encompassing his face.  In the final laps of every race it looked like he was being dipped in acid, while it was more likely the lactic acid of pushing yourself to the utter limits.  That look and those medals are no coincidence.  He wanted it more.  However, the beauty of Zatopek is the man’s heart.  He was known around the world as one of the most gracious, giving, and gregarious competitors in the sport.  The story that unveils the whole man was his connection to Australian runner Ron Clarke.  Clarke was a world record holder, but was snack bit whenever it came to the Olympics.  He never won a medal.  Later in his career he visited Zatopek in the Czech Republic and before he left Zatopek gave him wrapped present. Clarke tucked it away thinking he was sneaking something out of the communist country.  On the plane home Clarke opened it to unveil one of Zatopek’s gold medals, engraved to Clarke, noting that he deserved it.  It’s the ultimate #sharetheharvest moment Give what you have. Zatopek gave it all on the track and off.  #runners #running #run #czech #goodpeople #sports #fitness #sport #olympics #photooftheday #picoftheday #instagood 4w

soulfocussports So yes I’m already realizing how cheezy the name #HalosOnHeroes is. That blatant fact has not escaped me. On the other hand, I just wanted to get this project rolling versus waiting for the perfect graphic or some delicious artisanal slogan. So onto our next hero. This one hits closer to home.  We’ve worked with her on and off for a few years, but she is so self-sufficient that we end up just watching in awe.  Captain Liz Clark aka @swellvoyage has been travelling the open seas on her boat “The Swell” for almost 9 years now.  Solo.  Yes, she has visitors and flies home every blue moon, but otherwise it’s just Liz, surf, sailing, writing, and taking photos.  Yes, Lizzy shreds waves, but more importantly Lizzy shreds life.  Saving the world seems to be her main goal, but promoting a sustainable lifestyle is the constant. #Athlete * #activist * #artist * And basically you should vote for her for the @natgeo Adventurer of the Year. #surf #surfer #surfing #sailing #sailor #boats #natgeo @patagonia @zealoptics 4w

soulfocussports I love @instagram but not just because of the photos. I like that people can write and write and write.  I also like that people who don’t like to read and read and read can just flip through to the next #selfie or #sunset or #pictureofyourstupidburger.  I like that.  So I’m starting a new series on the @soulfocussports feed called #HalosOnHeroes Basically I found a halo graphic file on the interwebs and I’m placing it on photos of my favorite sportsmen & sportswomen.  Very scientific schtufffff here people… I’ll try to do one a day, but sometimes I’ll blow it or get busy or get over this thing all together. For the first Halos on Heroes I’ve chosen one of my favorite runners in the world.  Wesley Korir. You might know to #runners @runmeb or @ryanhall3 but Wesley is a force of a man, but a little less known. Ran college at Louisville, then kept training, then won the @LAMarathon then surprised everyone and won the @bostonMarathon, and then he was like “I don’t think I’m fulfilling my potential to the world” or something along those lines.  He decided he could do more good back in Kenya. So in 2012/2013 he sought election to become a member in Kenya’s Parliament.  Simultaneously he was running and preparing for the Chicago Marathon.  He won the election, but this time not that race.  And I think that is the way he would like to have it. I just love that his ambitions are so outrageous.  Being one of the best marathoners in the world was not enough.  He felt compelled to give back and not just by writing a simple check, but by giving of himself.  Around #thanksgiving I am reminded of the simple origins of the America holiday.  It's simple, share the harvest. Share what you have.  Maybe you have extra energy, tons of money, free time, specific knowledge, power or influence. Whatever you have don’t be afraid to give a bit of it.  Right now I’m totally inspired by Mr. Korir because he is giving everything he’s got; seemingly all of himself to his countrymen.  You can catch his whole story in the documentary #Transcend on iTunes.  #sharetheharvest #give #HalosOnHeroes #filmtranscend #running #run #dogood #instagood 1mon
