Welcome to my site; Women’s Running Shoes. I started running when I was a sophomore in high school. I was about 15 years old at the time that I joined track and field. I did not grow a passion for running until the past five years, now I’m 27 years old. I am still working on my goals of running 10 miles and achieving a better running form. Although I have been running off and on for over 10 years now this has all been a journey to me and I want to share that experience with others.
I know that by educating others on what I have learned and experienced as well as sharing with others what I have been through
I will also hold myself more accountable to my goals of running. I think that we all need help from time to time on achieving on our goals and being pointed in the right direction. Another thing that I have struggled with regarding running has been finding the right shoes. This site is for not only discussing more proper forms of running but also helping each runner to find the best shoes for your feet and goals. I have always been somewhat flat-footed and lacked arches in my feet so when it comes to running shoes that has to be a special focus of mine.
My Journey with Running
Growing up I moved a lot and didn’t have time to get involved with many activities and stick with them. During high school I had more stable moments in my life and was pushed to try track and field. I would also wake up early sometimes and go on runs with my dad. I would normally be out of breath but making it through nonetheless. As I got older I would go to the gym on my own and run on the treadmill but I never got over my 1 mile without feeling like it was too much.
Finally, I came across a book called ChiRunning and it changed my whole perspective on running and even walking. I always dabbled in different forms of fitness whether it be dance, cardio, weight lifting or yoga. Just reading the first portion of the book I learned that one should run with their body balanced with their legs doing most of the work. I had always thought that I had to exert myself as much as possible while running and that being out of breath was normal.
I could not have been more wrong.
I also didn’t know the importance of running shoes. When I was running in track & field this would have saved me a sprained ankle. Really, not having education on running and having proper shoes is what caused my ankle injury and shortly after that I dropped track & field and joined the baseball team my sophomore year.
Now I run on my own outside and at the gym. I am working my way up to running 10 miles.
Let Share our Running Journey’s
I want to help people figure out how they have been running wrong, talk about studies on running as well as finding the best running shoes. I know what it is like to sprain your ankle and destroy your feet with the wrong shoes. I have a growing passion for running that has been lying somewhat dormant for years that I would like to share with others. Hopefully through this I can hear your stories as well.
When You Have Perfect Form and a Good Pair of Shoes Nothing Can Stop you
There are those that have spent years running and have not achieved their goals. There are many who are afraid to run. Some people have been wearing the wrong shoes and are just now looking for answers. I am here to help with all of that.
Lets start this journey together to figure out how not only to run properly (low risk of injuries) but also the research and benefits behind running. Please feel free to share your stories with me. I look forward to going on this journey with you.
