How do you find good running shoes? Well, it’s pretty simple and easy as long as you know a few basic ground rules.
Just like with running apps, I very frequently am asked, “What are the best running shoes?” or “What running shoes are your favorite?”
While it’s not necessarily “hard” to find good running shoes in the sense that there are so many different top-quality running shoes available, these are still hard questions to answer because quite frankly, the answer is different for everyone. And just because I personally like a pair of running shoes, doesn’t mean they’re right for you … Read More
What are the best running apps? I get this question a lot, and it’s not an easy one to answer because, as you probably know, there are many, many running apps to choose from.
The good news is, even though I can’t use all of them all of the time and I typically stick to one just for the sake of consistency (and my sanity), I have personally tried many, many of these different running apps and can at least help give you a better idea of which of the best running apps will actually be the best one for you … Read More

You know when you know you’re supposed to do something, but you don’t?

Eventually not doing the things we’re supposed to comes back to bite us in the butt, though—which hopefully teaches us a lesson. … Read More
Believe it or not, my longest run since racing the 2014 NYC Marathon in November only took place this past weekend.
On Saturday I ran 5 miles (to and over the Brooklyn Bridge then back) and even though it was super windy ( almost just as windy as it had been on the day of the marathon), I was instantly reminded of everything I love about both distance running and running in NYC.
Part of this was thanks to my new PUMA Ignite sneakers. I’ve been running in them over the past few weeks, but I’ll get to those in a minute, though, because first I have a few other updates to fill you in on. … Read More
