Runners, Your Shoes Make a Difference

They may not make you run faster or jump higher. Yet the material in the running shoe you wear does seem to make a difference. This study tested different shoes to shed some light on the mechanics of running.

When you run, your foot hits the ground with high impact. This study helps prove that the muscles of the leg adjust to this impact through a process called muscle tuning. Muscle tuning lessens the effects of impact on the tissues of the leg.

The midsole of running shoes also helps lessen the effects of impact. These researchers tested two different midsoles on six different runners. They found major differences in the muscle tuning between different shoes. And muscle tuning was significantly different between individual runners. Some runners did better with a hard midsole, while others benefitted from a softer one.

A better understanding of how our legs work when we run may help researchers find ways to treat or prevent conditions caused by the wear and tear of impact on the body. And who knows, maybe it will spur shoe companies to develop a "super shoe" that really makes us run faster.

Extraterrestrial Full Moon Midnight Marathon
August
Rachel, NV

http://calicoracing.squarespace.com/et-full-moon-midnight-maratho
Calico Racing was born on a 15 mile run at Red Rock Canyon, just outside of Las Vegas. Recently back from a fantastic ultramarathon and vacation up in Moab I felt completely at peace surrounded by the serenity of the canyons. Though thoughts of putting on races in Las Vegas' beautiful places had crossed my mind for years, this would be the day I put that dream into motion. Since I started racing in 2002 I always found myself attracted to doing new events each year- it's the wanderlust Sagittarian in me. To date, there are only 2 events that I have done more than once, and that was more of a logistical choice. Now, with 54 marathons in 27 states, 8 Ironman triathlons, 10 ultramarathons (including Comrades and 1 x 100 miler), and crew/ pacing for Badwater four times, as well as racing and volunteering numerous short course events all on different courses, I have come to consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of running and triathlon events. (I realize to many of you ultrarunners out there reading this, that may seem like a year's worth of racing!)
