The Best Running Shoe for You

One of the most common questions we get is, “Which shoes should I wear?” The right shoe for you won’t automatically make you run better or get less injuries but it will help you be more comfortable. Keep reading to find out what we as professional runners and coaches recommend.AFW1734F_PinkOrange_btn4_xl

To answer the question, it’s best to know how much you run, what your running biomechanics are, the terrain you run on, as well as several other variables to help you select the best shoe for you. This is just one reason a professional running coach is so helpful in helping you reach your running goals.

We at Wholistic Running often recommend shoes that have a roomy toe box allowing your foot to do what it’s supposed to do and are most comfortable. You also want to look for shoes that have a minimal ‘drop’, provide adequate cushion and stability for the terrain you run on and proven durability over time. For trail shoes, look for good traction and adequate protection. Road shoes look for more flexibility and lighter weight. The best shoe for you is different for every runner and the most important thing is finding the right shoe for YOU and your goals.

We as professional runners and coaches can help you choose the best shoes specifically for you so you are running your best. To find out more about our Online Coaching click HERE.

Lindsey’s Simple Roasted Vegetables

2-3 medium sweet potatoes, diced

roasted veggies

2-3 medium beets, diced

1 sweet onion, diced

1 lb brussels sprouts, halved

1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets

1 lb fresh baby bella mushrooms, diced

3-5 cloves garlic, chopped

1 T Flora Olive Oil

Preheat your oven to 365 and do your chopping while it’s heating. Then line a baking sheet (or 2) with parchment paper. Spread the cut up veggies evenly in both pans except for the mushrooms. Sprinkle with freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste and coat with oil.

Bake veggies for about 1 hour, but be sure and stir every 20 minutes. This will help to spread the oil evenly over the vegetables and prevent anything from burning. At about 20 minutes remaining add the mushrooms.

Coach Damian’s Special Lentils

1 cup yellow lentils

1 T Flora Omega Sport+ oil

3 cups water or veggie stock

1 T cumin

1/2 T ground ginger

1 Dash cinnamon to taste

Sea salt and pepper to taste

yellow lentis

Cook on a stovetop, using 3 cups of liquid (water, stock or combo) to 1 cup of dry lentils. Be sure to use a large enough saucepan as the lentils will double or triple in size. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, reduce heat and simmer until they are tender. For whole lentils, cook time is typically 15-20 minutes.

When finished cooking, add spices and Omega Sport+. Be sure NOT to add sea salt until after lentils are finished cooking as the lentils will remain hard if you do so. You can leave these a bit chunky or blend until smooth and creamy. If you like them on the creamy side you can also add a touch of soy or almond milk.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Lindsey & Damian
