A Little Running Motivation

A Little Running Motivation

A little running motivation for this Wednesday. “We live in an ‘instant’ society, with instant fast food, instant diets (to lose the weight gained from the instant food), instant Internet, instant cell phones, pagers, email, and 24-hour news.

When to change Running Shoes

When to change Running Shoes

When do you change your running shoes?  I change mine when they get ‘Squishy’.  I’m less concerned about time and distance; when I loose the cushioning and support, I know it’s time to change my running shoes.  The consequences of continuing to run in running shoes that have past their ‘best before’ date are injuries.  Foot, ankle, shin, knees, hips, back… ...[Read More]

Run strong and fast

Run strong and fast

We all aspire to run strong and fast.  I know I do.  To do that I read tons of articles, watch a lot of videos, talk constantly to more seasoned and experienced runners.  Maybe you do the same…it drives your family crazy doesn’t it!
