I finally managed to settle on a new pair of running shoes. It took me almost 3 months to settle on this pair and it was certainly worth the wait. We all have such unique feet and different running requirements that I don’t think that there is one best running shoe, but what I will try to do today is help you select a pair of running shoes that is suitable for YOUR feet. Where to start? I visited the Sweatshop (or you can visit any specialty sport shop) and did a foot assessment with one of their trained consultants.

After all, I don’t get paid to blog, I have a full time job (which sometimes feels like two jobs in one) and so why do I blog? Blogging for me, is about sharing. There are certain things in this world that are free and if you use them effectively, you can help make this world a better place. Sharing and inspiring are two things that are very important to me. It is about making a difference. To share and to inspire cannot be quantified, it is not tangible, but it can be a game […]
Should you join a running club? The simple answer is, YES. Running clubs offer a world of benefits. On your most difficult training days, you are coaxed by like minded lycra groupies into giving it your best shot!
