This is a guest post by Dr. Jeff Moreno, DPT A common observation  in the world of running is the runner that overstrides.

My Ideal Running Shoe Rotation

Running Shoe Rack

I’m part of a pretty active group on Facebook that is aptly titled “Running Shoe Geeks.” The group is diverse in that we have minimalist aficionados, folks who prefer more traditional shoes, industry insiders, regular runners, and a smattering of scientists and therapists.

Update: This shoe is now available and I have posted a Saucony Kinvara 5 review here. Earlier today Saucony posted a preview of the Kinvara 5 on their blog (thanks to Marc S. for the alert!). I was disappointed by the Kinvara 4, with my main issues being the tight forefoot fit and lack of […]

Four and a half years ago I started Runblogger on Google’s Blogger platform. Blogger is a great service, and I learned a lot about web design by using it (you need to know a bit of HTML and CSS to modify Blogger templates). However, over the past few months I’d come to realize that there […]

Can a Human Outrun a Cheetah?

Start (Photo credit: Wikipedia) If you ask the average person which animal is the best runner on the planet, the most common answer would likely be the cheetah. Few would likely say humans. Cheetahs are blazing fast, no doubt, and in a sprint a cheetah would blow a human away. But what would happen in […]

Colin’s Running Form – Sometimes Radically Different Shoes Don’t Change Things Very Much
