A little running is a dangerous thing

Every so often there’s a debate about whether running, from jogging for the bus, to ultra-marathons onwards, are good or bad for your health. there is no doubt that running can be hazardous while in central park, new york there’s disputes about who should be using the dirt path undulating around the Central Park reservoir known as the “runners’ track”, which now even has one-way signs posted to keep order.

In no doubt though is that running shoes have improved. Back in the days when I moved from doing football training to running there was a choice of plimsolls, football trainers (adidias) or Dunlop green flash. Soon came along trendy, fashionable, garish and expensive hi-tecs, and a few more years after that the start of proper running shoes from Nike and everyone else. I’ve since run in great shoes from new balance, brooks, saucony and asics; all a great improvement on the old-fashioned sports shoes. So things do improve with age.
