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.

Wyoming Marathon
May
Laramie, WY

The first thought that came to mind at the 6 a.m. start of this year's Wyoming Marathon Races was "Gorillas in the Mist," except that we were Runners in the Mist. Our huddle of a hundred or so runners was shrouded in dense fog as we tried to make out the dirt road disappearing beyond the start line. While competitors talked and warmed up, the race starter asked for a moment of silence as he said a sort of runner's prayer. The prayer at the race start was a new twist for me, and I immediately liked the vibe surrounding this race. It seemed a fitting tribute to the Memorial Day weekend.The course started on a gently-sloping downhill, a welcome beginning to a long day ahead. Competitors comprised half-marathoners like myself, marathoners, and ultra-marathoners. This was a tough bunch. Lush greenery and gurgling streams cheered us on from the sides of the road, and a certain calm settled over the crowd as we found our respective rhythms under a quiet blanket of morning mist.

Green River Wyoming is located in the south west corner of the state. If you have driven I-80 across the state and passed through twin tunnels, you have passed by a wonderful town! Nestled in between gorgeous rock formations with the Green River running through the heart of the town it is a oasis in the "High Desert Country". The River has been the drawing point for early settlers and has served as a transportation hub for the Overland Trail, Cherokee Trail, Lincoln Highway, Union Pacific Transcontinental Railroad, and now Interstate 80. John Wesley Powell was attracted to the towns proximity to the railroad and river and began his two river expeditions from "Expedition Island". The second trip he discovered the Grand Canyon. Thomas Moran, early western, artist painted several renderings of the cliffs just west of town. Tollgate and the Palisades are sometimes misnamed as the "Cliffs along the Colorado".
