Web tool to find new running shoes
With fall racing season fast approaching, I'm reminded it's time to think about what shoes we'll be racing in. Shoes that you are training in now, for example, likely won't get you across the finish line if you're training for the Baltimore Marathon or Baltimore Half, according to Jim Adams, owner of Falls Road Running Store.
I'd seen this online shoe-finder tool before on the Runner's World website, but it was highlighted on my of my favorite blogs, Lifehacker, today, so thought I'd share their post.
The RW Shoe Finder asks you to answer a series of questions, then recommends shoes based on your answers.
If you know your foot type and what type of shoe you need, it can be helpful to see what else is out there if you're looking for something new. If you're new to buying running shoes, this interactive could help you create a list of shoes you might want to try on once you get to the running store. (If you're a newbie, I highly recommend going to a running store whether or not you have a handy web tool.)
If you test this out, let me know what you think.
