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.

The City Of Trees Marathon Association Inc started with it's first race; The City Of Trees Marathon in 2002. Our theme was"New in 2002? In 2003 we offered the Fit For Life Half Marathon partially as a training run for the 2003 City Of Trees Marathon, partially to use up supplies left over from the City Of Trees 2002, and partially because we needed to expand our offerings in order to make the City Of Trees Marathon a success. 2004 was an expansion year to say the least, and we offered 12 events, mostly just to see what would stick in the valley and beyond. Since 2004 we have honed our offerings into three major categories, Trail Runs, Road Races, and Festival events or Fun Runs. The Les Bois Trail Running Series was created as a Gran Prix Style race series where the three trail runs have been combined to determine series winners, and also to give discounts to those who would like to run all three trail races. The same can be said for the City Of Trees Road Racing Series, where we offer two Gran Prix Series using the Fit For Life Events, The Payette Lake Run events, and finally the City Of Trees Marathon Events, a"short" series consisting of a 10K-8.6 mile-Half Marathon, and a"long" series consisting of a Half-30K-Marathon. Not only can these races be used to compete, but they are strategically placed so they can be used as training runs to compliment each other for the end goal of the City Of Trees Marathon Events. Kind of an"All Path's lead to the City Of Trees Marathon
