The new year is upon us and many of you will be becoming triathletes in 2015. Before you begin your training program it is a good idea to get fitted for some good running shoes. Visit a local specialty run store where someone can evaluate your run gait (this is how your feet, ankles, knees, hips, etc are affected as you progress through the strike to push off of your run stride). It’s more than just picking the “pretty” shoe.
They should watch you run and also talk to you about your run history and distance, past or present injuries, and general aches and pains so that you can train in the right shoe.
