HELP FROM LACES: Did you know that the manner in which you lace your shoes might help with running? In “3 Ways to Lace Up Your Running Shoes” Allison Patillo shows how for Competitor.com:
Lydiard lacing: if shoes feel tight or bind
Loop lacing lock: to minimize heel slippage
Gap lacing: to accommodate high arches and wider feet
She cites these methods came from Ian’s Shoelace Site, if you want more shoelace information. I was interested in learning more about charity shoes laces but the links do not seem to be current (American Cancer Society, Youth off the Streets, and Special Olympics are no longer selling laces; UK’s Lace Up for Bones IS active)
A luxury shoelace brand “Laced Up Laces” offers some really nice looking pairs, like Galaxy Glory, Camo, and Watch the Throne print laces. There are Cement flat laces, some of which have a reflective quality contributed by 3M. Check out the other laces. There’s an option for organizations to order promotional laces; samples are demonstrated on the Special Projects page.
As you start to think about fund raisers, birthday party favors, stocking stuffers for Christmas, special shoelaces are something to keep in mind!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
