Hey guys! Race day is coming up in few days (eek!) and I have a few more thoughts I’ve been wanting to share. This time, about the power of proper shoes.
Now, by a proper pair of shoes, I mean shoes from an actual running store that have been fitted specifically for you. These stores have people who know what they are talking about, (not someone who just works in the shoe section) and usually have a shoe for almost any budget.
In the Milwaukee area we have a store called Performance Running Outfitters. They have a great selection of shoes as well as a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They watch you walk barefoot to see how your feet (work) and watch you jog on a treadmill to make sure your feet are pronating properly. The best things is they do this for each client who walks in the door- for free!
