What makes running shoes so much more special than just a ordinary pair of cross trainers? Well for starters their running shoes. When your running your feet hit the ground with certain level of pressure or that causes stress on tendon and joints muscles. In running their is very little side to side motion. Light weight shoes are ideal. It is easy to tell the weight of a running shoe by running in it just based off how much spring you have in your step. This is pretty easy to tell.

Just as recently as this weekend I was just getting over what one might call a pretty bad cold. But like any runner who, enjoys the sport or activity just as much as I do I valiantly got my running gear back on laced up my shoes and got out the door.
