The Barefoot Running Debate Part 2

The Barefoot Running Debate (Part 2) Since my first article about barefoot running I've done some more in-depth investigation of the subject and, more importantly, run in a pair of FiveFingers. Apart from confirming most of the comments I originally made, a number of things have become clear to me: Few people will go to the extreme of doing much running completely barefoot but the new mini…

The Blenheim Triathlon 5th/6th June 2010

The Blenheim Triathlon 5th/6th June 2010The Blenheim Triathlon is rapidly becoming an event that appears on many triathlete's calendars. The area in which the events are staged is magnificent, and the organisation ran like clockwork as the palace welcomed well over 5000 competitors, both non-experienced and professional, into its grounds. The event spanned two days, the first of which saw high t…

Saucony Fastwitch 3/4 review

Saucony Fastwitch 3/4 Review Update: I wrote this article about the FT3 and Saucony have since released the follow-up Fastwitch 4. It's fractionally lighter than the old version but the same great plush fit is there and I can detect no difference in the shape of the shoe. There's no chance of not being noticed in a pair of these which may not be to everyone's taste but personally I love the brig…

The Barefoot Running Debate

The Barefoot Running DebateFrom time to time an article appears about how we should all be running barefoot, often combined with comments about how sports shoe companies have been making running shoes that actually cause most of our injuries. This makes for a great headline but doesn't exactly give a balanced argument!We weren't born with shoes on, so running barefoot has to be natural. Many peopl…

Auld Lang Syne Fell Race

The Auld Lang Syne Fell RaceBack when I started running I was given, or otherwise acquired a copy of Bruce Tulloh's 'Running Is Easy' which I read and re-read so often the spine had to be kept barely functional with more duck tape than the average roadie would use during an AC/DC tour. Anyway, one of the pearls of wisdom that stuck in my mind was his assertion that you should try other branches o…

2009 Florence Marathon Review

Florence Marathon 2009 Review If you're looking for an excuse for a city break before winter sets in and want to take the opportunity to run on a fast, flat marathon course, then this could be one for you to look at. Florence is an ideal venue for a marathon weekend. The main tourist sites are quite close together and the race start and finish are only a short walk from the city centre and hotels…

Tapering for a Marathon

Tapering for a Marathon It's peak Autumn marathon season with the Chicago race imminent, closely followed by Amsterdam and New York and many other smaller races so thousands of runners will be in the midst of tapering for their target race or just about to start. For me, it's the Frankfurt marathon on the 25th October this year which has been been my almost obsession for the past 14 weeks or so.…

Newton Gravity Review

Newton Gravity Running Shoe Review Newton Running shoes were launched in the UK in the autumn of last years (2008). There are constant developments in running shoes design, however, the Newtons are a bit different. While the majority of running shoes focus on cushioning and stability around the heel the Newtons are very different, in that they encourage you to land more mid to forefoot. They do t…

Kenilworth Half Marathon 09 Review

Kenilworth Half Marathon 4th October 2009 Kenilworth Runners Website I'd raced the Great North Run a couple of weeks before this race so there could hardly have been a greater contrast but for me it's these friendly and well-run local races that make the sport, not the marketing behemoths the major races have now become. There were around 700 entrants for the race which starts close to the…
