Choosing The Right Running Shoe For You

With my Plantar Fasciitis in full effect, I started doing some extensive research on running shoes and which ones I should be wearing. In all honesty, I’ve never really focused on the type of shoe in terms of over-pronation versus under-pronation. Instead, I have always gone for the Asics running shoe that is on the […]

National Running Day – June 6, 2012

Ever heard of National Running Day? Neither had I… Until someone on the South Florida Runs team mentioned it the other day and I was interested enough to look up the “holiday” to learn more.

Postrun Refreshments – And This Time I’m Not Talking Beer!

In all my years running – after finishing a run, hard workout or race, there were never many options. You could grab a water or an electrolyte-filled drink (i.e. Gatorade, Propel or Powerade). Sometimes I’d think of having a protein shake – if I was doing weights or a really strenuous track workout. So when […]
