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.

NAIA Marathon Championships - Men
Marion, IN
In searching for the NAIA's place in the history of sports and higher education, several consistencies are revealed. Among them is the dedication to academic achievement above athletic excellence. Also apparent is the organization's role as a trailblazer in providing equal opportunities for all student-athletes. Above all, there is an expectation of ethical behavior and a commitment to scholarship, sportsmanship and leadership.It is paradoxical that such a lasting, dynamic contribution to collegiate sports began with a mundane note in the first recorded history of the Association:"The first general session of the `Organizing Convention' of the National Association of Intercollegiate Basketball (NAIB) was held in the Phillips Hotel, Kansas City, Missouri, at 10 a.m., Sunday, March 10, 1940."But the seed from which the NAIB sprouted was planted two blocks away at Municipal Auditorium. It was there in 1937 that a men's basketball tournament tipped off which has become the longest continuous national collegiate tournament in any sport. Further, out of that small-college basketball tournament, and the NAIB, grew an Association that now includes more than 360 colleges and universities and conducts two dozen national championship events.The tournament was the brainchild of Emil S. Liston, Dr. James Naismith, Frank Cramer, and a group of Kansas City business leaders who wanted to provide Kansas City-area fans with exciting amateur competition and to provide a framework for small colleges and universities to determine a national basketball champion.
