|intraining’s monthly Love 2 Run e-News – April 2016
|Alas, early morning sunrise is taking a lot longer to light up our morning runs than the Summer past and our evening sessions appear to fade into darkness quicker each day. Fear not, with the darkness comes a light at the end of the tunnel and in Queensland – that is cooler weather! So get out your reflective run gear, flashing lights and strap on your shoes because another exciting running season is ahead. See you out there.

Did you know running facts – Part 24
Thankfully for his sanity, Derek did actually end up going under 4mins for the mile and setting a new world record in 1957 – which you can see here.
Stay healthy, keep active and have a happy run!
Why you need to light up your next run?
Whilst our eyes will adapt to the light, oncoming cyclists, cars and other pedestrians can suddenly appear from out of nowhere destined to ruin an enjoyable run. As a road/path user, it is your responsibility to make sure you have sufficient reflective gear and lights in place to maximise your safety. We have put together a few products and recommendations that are worth a look this running season.

Cushioned and lightweight…yep we can help…
The original Hoka Clifton was a popular shoe and had heads turning. The unmistakably ‘Hoka’ sole profile is one you couldn’t miss. For those unaware of the Clifton, the shoe has a 5mm heel to toe drop and features a mild ‘rocker’ type sole to assist in toe off, essentially making it feel easier to run.
The NEW Clifton 2 retains all these great features as well as ‘triathlon style’ heel tab for quick pull ons, cushioned tongue and even though we thought it couldn’t get any better – more cushioning. The Hoka Clifton 2 is also slightly narrower than the original with a more streamlined fit that really feels like it is holding your foot nicely in place.
If you find your joints are aching post run, want to try something new or are just interested to see how they compare to your current shoes, make sure you visit intraining Running Centre.
We have a wide range of Hoka footwear available in store to suit different foot types. Our trained staff are able to assist selecting the right fit for your foot. Make sure you bring your current shoes in for an assessment and we will help find your foot’s ‘happy place’.
