Even tho 80% of the members on this board are either fat bastards or skinny little sticks who do nothing but sit on their ass and do nothing"you know who you are!" I figured why not try and ask these questions here Running Shoes. What brand/model do you guys like to use? I would like to know from people who have used different pairs of shoes and not just comment on "well I like my 2 year old nikes...." If you run a lot chances are you buy new shoes every few months. I'm also looking for tips on running, breathing, pacing and so on I've been running 1 mile for alittle while now, every now and then I run 1.5 miles. My goal is to have a max of 1.5 miles but speeding up my times I would like to pull off a 11:59 1.5 mile and have no problem doing it. right now I can run a 15 min 1.5 mile with no problems other then being short of breath, however I want like to be much faster. Back to the shoe talk right now I have some Saucony running shoes I really like them but they are wearing out and it's time to replace them I had a pair of Asics back in the day and really liked them but no local stores seem to carry them anymore Nikes I've had bad luck with falling apart NB... same thing but they always took care of me I've sent back 3 different pairs of shoes due to falling apart within a month or two of buying them. NB would replace them with the same if not better shoe at their cost they even covered shipping to and from! anyways um yeah thats about it.
