When it comes to running, what you wear on your feet makes a big difference in how you perform. A properly fitted shoe will make you feel lighter on your feet and prevent common running related injuries such as blisters, shin-splits, and tendonitis. However, finding the proper fit is not always so easy, as there is a lot that must be considered when looking for your perfect shoe. Will you be running on a smooth indoor surface or varied outdoor terrain. Do you plan on running a long distance at a steady pace or are you working to improve your speed? How old are you? How fit are you? When you hit the ground running, what part of your foot hits the ground first?
Yes. ALL of these things and then some MUST be taken into account when searching for the perfect shoe. It is a lot to digest and often we are much too busy to consider all of this before we hit the track or the treadmill. Hence, may of us are running in the WRONG shoes and have been doing so for quite some time.
It is because of this that our Run Club has decided to put the focus on footwear during the next few weeks, with a series of exclusive FOOTWEAR FEATURE dates! These dates will include trails and demos from the leaders in running gear. The fist of these demos happened last night and featured the brand new "Transcend" from Brooks Running. The revolutionary design of the Transcend features a plush upper, rounded heels, guide rails, and ideal pressure zones making it perfect for runners who appreciate extra support.
