Runblogger Runcast #1 – Winter Running With Jack

Friday was a reading day before exams start next week the college where I teach, so I took the opportunity while my kids wee in school in the morning to get out for a run with my good buddy Jack.  It was frigid out – 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind chill, and probably not […]

Newton Running: Q&A With Ian Adamson, Newton’s Director of Product Development

Last week I published a post with a series of slow-motion videos of me running on a treadmill in different types of footwear (stability shoe to fully barefoot), with a specific goal of looking at if/how my footstrike might change with different types of shoes (or lack thereof).  To my surprise, I received a series […]

Over the past year I’ve been running in everything from full-blown, pronation-control stabilty shoes (Saucony Progrid Guides, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8) down to Vibram Fivefingers KSO’s, which are about as minimalist as you can […]

One Hundred Pushups: Great Upper Body Workout Program by Steve Speirs

It’s pretty clear from the title of this blog that my favored form of exercise is running.  Unfortunately, running doesn’t do much for building upper body strength, and my legs are in far better shape than the rest of my body as a result.  One of the resolutions/goals I’ve set for myself this winter is […]
