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.

North Country Trail Run
Manistee, MI
The course is a well marked 25 mile loop. There is an additional 1.2 mile section for the marathon runners and now a new course for the half marathon runners. The trail is a single-track hiking trail with enough hills to make for a challenging race. There is no high altitude to contend with, no rocks to jump over, and no stream crossings to wade through, just a beautiful forest with a few roots to remind you you're not on pavement. Crews can attend to their runners at several points. We will provide specific driving directions the morning of the race.

Running Fit Dances With Dirt Ultra Trail Marathon
Hell, MI
Millions of years ago the Potawatomi Indians hunted and fished peacefully in an area which is now a public wilderness preserve. In the tribe there were five young gentle hooligans, inseparable friends, united by their love of running - in places where most wouldn't even try to walk. The five were destined from birth to run, perhaps due to the nickname bestowed upon them. The two young girls and three boys whose names, translated, were Endurance, Challenge, Stamina, Obsession and Endless Trail. The elders in the tribe gave the group its nickname, Dances with Dirt.
Fallsburg Marathon and Half Marathon
Lowell, MI
Even Marathon Great Chuck Engle gave the Old Farts Course some respect appreciating the EXTREME TOUGHNESS of Fallsburg's BRUTAL 2nd Half of the Race. Phenom Engle cruised through the first half in 1:29:20 en route to what looked like another sub 3:00 hour marathon and a new course record. The Chase Pack which included two time 1/2 marathon champ Robert Cook making his Fallsburg Marathon debut were in hot pursuit. Defending champ Gale Fischer of Battle Creek also entered the race in great shape prepared to defend his title. In the end Chuck Engle met and over came the challenge that is Fallsburg breaking the old course record by over five minutes. Gale Fishcer passed all but one running two minutes under his old record time and finished second. Turner and Geers also beat the heat and the old record in what was a great race. On the womens side Cindy Lewandowski from Sartell Minnesota ran away from a great field which included inaugural champ Nicole Mills of Chicago,Bergeron of Norton Shores, Yerkes of Indiana and the timeless Martha Irwin (age 50) from Grand Rapids. Lewandowski's time of 3:44:45sets the bar for the open and master's course records!

Run Charlevoix Marathon
Charlevoix, MI
Good Boy Events is an event company based in the Metro-Ann Arbor, Michigan area.The concept of Good Boy comes from our passion for events and the reason we do we can be home more often to take care of our animals. Thus, our Company was created. Our dogs have lived the dream for a long time; extended hikes, boating, swimming, "the today's specials", camping trips and so much more. However, not all animals are so lucky. So many animals are stuck in crates for life, are unloved, malnourished, homeless, and even euthanized. The goal with Good Boy Events is to produce professional, safe, big time events for all to enjoy. Partial proceeds will benefit Animal Shelters around the Great Lakes State plus Good Boy Events will also provide support to local High School sports teams, local church groups, Boy Scouts and food banks. We have donated over $180,000 cash, collected used clothing, used running shoes and countless non-perishables items during the past eight years for charity organizations across the country
