Running in the right shoe - Nat's Runbit #5

Hi Runner Friends,

If you haven't had your running gait assessed in a while, pop into your local running store and have them do an assessment for you.

I had been running in the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14 for a while. After having a lengthy discussion with the manager at the running store + a gait analysis, he determined that the GTS 14 was not right for me.
The GTS 14 is mainly a stability shoe and since I don't have any issues with pronating, I don't need a stability shoe.

WOW! That is a lot of important info.

I walked out of the store with something brand new -

The Brooks Ghost 7

Balance, cushion, lightweight materials...

This shoe is awesome and perfect for me!

Also, at 8.6 ounces, versus the 9.4 ounces for the GTS 14 - this is a lighter shoe, while still giving me great cushion out on the roads.

Make sure you are running in the shoe that is right for you.

Leave a comment below - what shoe are you currently running in? Did you have a gait analysis before you purchased the shoe?

Happiness Is Running Life!
