Shoe Tip of the Day
"Tight" is a word you hope people use when describing you. But it's actually more important that you use this word to describe your shoes while running. I've discovered that making your shoes just a little tighter than usual before running really helps to improve your stamina, endurance, and step control. When your shoes feel like they're a part of your foot, it sort of makes you feel like you're flying! And, you'll smack (warning, this link is rated PG-13, but hilarious) the ground with more gentleness, resulting in less muscle fatigue. Overall, your run will be better physically and psychologically. I have no idea if there is scientific proof to this anomaly, so take it for what it's worth.
