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.

he Swan Lake Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, and 5.3 mile run web site! We are glad that you are interested in this race. Here you will find information that will help you plan for this event. The Swan Lake Marathon and shorter races are held in cooperation with Swan Lake Christian Camp. After expenses all the proceeds from the Swan Lake Marathon and other races go towards Swan Lake Christian Camp's general fund. Donations can also be made towards camper scholarships. Not all children can afford coming to camp and Swan Lake will never turn someone away. The parents are told to pay what they can and the monies from camper scholarships cover the difference in cost.We want this to be a family friendly marathon so there are a few things that cater to this. The pasta meal on Saturday is affordable and the Sunday noon meal is a free will donation for participants, families. There will also be activities and events that the families of participants can enjoy during the race or afterwards including frisbee golf, swimming, canoeing etc. We want to honor God this weekend and feel free to give us suggestions as to how we can make it better

Run Crazy Horse
Crazy Horse, SD
Fast forward six years into this incredibly successful event. Are we still a cow town? Should the event abandon this identity, or worse, the cows themselves? Doesn't matter. In 2010, the event was once again renamed. Fort Worth, Texas Cowtown Marathon officials notified the event that they owned the service mark rights to the name"Cowtown" and, therefore, wanted exclusive rights to it. After a nationwide renaming contest, The Urban Cow Half Marathon was born. There is no longer a marathon offered and the event now includes a half marathon, two-person half marathon relay, and 5k run/walk. We expect over 6,000 participants for this year's edition presented by the Buzz Oates Group of Companies and Clark's Corner
