Running Log – Run Tall, Run Soft

February 3, 2010


Running makes me happy. Running makes me tired. Running makes me stronger. Running makes me sane. I love running. I felt angry, frustrated and sad. I went running. I felt breathless. I felt tired. I felt pain. I felt better. My left heel and lower back felt most of the pain. I’m not in pain […]

The Great Running Shoe Debate

January 12, 2010


It started with a recent post on Peak Performance by Amby Burfoot titled:  Do Running Shoes Cause Running Injuries? A Few Insights on a Dismal Science. In the post, Amby lamented about his frustration searching through medical papers on the subject. However, his discussion quickly became a running in shoes vs running barefoot debate. The […]
