Ever noticed that hole way at the top of your sneakers and thought, "what the heck is that hole for?" I always thought it was just for people who were nuts, and liked to have their shoes so tight that their feet fall asleep. Surprisingly enough, it turns out I was wrong. Mind blown.

Runners may already know this brilliant tip, but I guess it caught my eye because I just decided this morning that I am going to fire up the ole running shoes again with help from my "Couch to 5K" app. To keep myself accountable for what I just said, I will provide proof that I just re-downloaded the app.

Now, if you see me somewhere, be sure to ask me how the running is going. It will keep me going. Thank you. (Unless it's the middle of July or August; chances are I'm not running. It's too hot for my blood then.)

Anyhow, I digress. Let's get back to the point. There is a reason your athletic shoes have an extra hole at the top, and I am hoping knowing this will make me the best runner ever. (Probably not gonna happen, but it will help.)




Get your laces locked, and get training now for an incredibly fun run coming to the area this September; the Insane Inflatable 5K! It's gonna be so cool, you will forget that you are actually running a 5K!
