comfort, fit, lacing, shoes -

At Red Dot Running Company we see a lot of feet. We also see a lot of people tying their shoes when they're trying on a new pair, and if you care about how your shoe fits, you may need to (re)learn how to tie your shoes. No, we're not talking about the first rule of running, especially in races, which is "Double knot!"   We're talking about not tying your shoes like a kindergartner.

compression, COVID-19, physio, WFH -

In these WFH times you may have noticed that your feet and lower legs are much more swollen at the end of the day than they were in "normal" times. That's because your schedule is different, and so are the demands on your body.

Racing means different things to different people. To marathon world record holders Eliud Kipchoge (2:01:39) and Brigid Kosgei (2:14:04), it means earning a (very good) living, and forging a place in athletics history. To those of us who run a bit more slowly, it can mean winning a local race, beating an age group rival, or simply doing the best that you can against the clock, the runners around you, and yourself.
