2017 Spring Shoe Review

on 14 February 2017.

“The times they are a changin’,” wrote Bob Dylan more than 50 years ago, and that has certainly been the case in the running shoe industry over the past season. Emerging brands have seen some successes, there have been many new shoe launches (as with the most active past seasons, about 35% of this spring’s offerings are new), and changes in materials and construction methods have left their mark on the industry.

KEEPING TRACK

Written by Rod O'Donnell on 25 January 2017.

According to the National Governing Body for High School Sports (NFHS), participation in track and cross-country continues to show tremendous growth; ironically, less attention is given to them by the main stream media. Websites such as Flo-Track, Let’s Run, and MileSplit are outstanding, but they are largely unknown to the general public.  If we want our sports to continue to grow and capture more attention in the sports world, we need to regain the press coverage that was the norm at one time.

A More Positive Approach to Running

Written by Richard Ferguson, Ph.D on 23 January 2017.

Positive Psychology is currently one of the hottest areas of study by psychologists. Why are some people positive thinkers and other more negative in their outlooks? None of us were born being positive or negative thinkers. We have all learned to think in a positive or negative manner through varied life and socialization experiences.  The word “learn” is the key here! We can all learn to become more positive in how we approach our running and how we approach life in general.

Ever since I stopped eating carbs, I’ve been feeling so much better.

The keto-diet works fine for me. It keeps me from having cookie binges!

I tried giving up carbs and my workouts tanked. I had no energy and felt horrible.
