Can you hear it?
That rumbling sound isn't an earthquake, or a stampeding herd of buffalo, its thousands of Vibram-five Fingers on a crash course with Austin Texas for this year's Paleo f(x) event.
I've attended the "Superbowl" of Paleo before, but this year's is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever.

Austin TX, a city known for it's love of local food, music, and being "weird" is the perfect venue for a Paleo convention. Dining experiences abound, from a trip to the "mothership" (aka the Whole Foods world headquarters), to grass-fed burgers at Wholly Cow, to perfectly portioned Paleo lunches and bulletproof coffee at Picnik. Oh yeah, and barbecue. Real motherfucking barbecue.
Thankfully, Austin is also jam-packed with CrossFit gyms, fitness trails, and other ways to burn off all those delicious calories.
Understandably, however, not everyone can cut out of work and hang out in Austin for a few days. The good news is Paleo f(x) has you covered as well. Whether you are in Tulsa Oklahoma or Anchorage Alaska, you can tune in to a Live Stream of the event that will put you right there in the front row. That way you won't have to miss a single informative talk or inspirational panel!
Here's a breakdown of some of the talks that you can tune in to:

Last but not least... a little shameless self promotion!
The first time I attended Paleo f(x) I was there on assignment from Paleo Magazine. The second time I attended, I actually got to get up on stage, moderating and participating in several panel discussion. This time, however, I actually get to present in addition to paneling, a Paleo f(x) first for me.
I'll be presenting on a topic that is near and dear to my heart in a speech titled, "One Step Back Two Steps Forward - Using Exercise Regression to Unlock Your Movement Potential".
You, my loyal blog viewers, have probably seen my Muscle Up and Back Flip progression videos, but the real secret to achieving both, is exercise "regression", something I will discuss in detail at Paleo f(x)! Again, don't fret if you can't attend, I'll do a full blog post when I return from Austin ;)
I'm also participating in some pretty cool panels:
Fitness Training in a Digital Age ("I look so much Fitter online")
Fairies, Unicorns, and Paleo Cookies
All in all, I'm super pumped for this year's Paleo f(x) and hope to see you there!
