John's Run/Walk Shop presents the third installment in the Speakeasy Series: drink free beer and talk running with us!

This month we have the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Stuart Best, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Promotion at the University of Kentucky. The topic of Stuart's talk will be The Science of Running 101: How Does The Body Do It? How does the body create movement and what does it need to keep going? 

Stuart has worked as a fitness trainer and strength and conditioning coach, and has also worked with a number of professional and amateur sporting teams as a sports scientist and performance analyst. He is currently investigating the effects of reduced sleep on physical function and performance, as well as how to optimize the adaptations to exercise training.

As an athlete, Stuart spent most of his childhood and adult life playing team sports that involved hitting, kicking or throwing a ball. However, he finally saw the light of endurance sports and is currently training for his first Ironman triathlon.
