    I tend to agree with heatseeker, but I stretch my distances a little farther. I usually carry dried fruit if I think I'm going to need some calories.

    I also go with the Honey Stingers if I need...

    Gator - Sorry I didn't see your post until now.

    I bought them in-store. They are european sizing. They sized the same as my cycling shoes, and the european equivalent of my Asics.

    gator - on the second part of your question. The uppers seem to be a little more rugged than traditional shoes. They are one piece, so no sewn seams. On my traditionals, I tend wear out the seam...

    First off, they run great! They require a cadence similar to the VFF. However, in my case, they don't bother my toes (especially my pinky toes) like the VFFs do. I've read of some people taking...

    The sprints are essential if you want to get faster. Long runs will improve endurance, but they won't make you faster. You need either track workouts, or (as I prefer) hill repeats. They hurt, but...

    We love it and used to go pretty regularly. We lived near it until we moved to North Dallas about 6 months ago. It is now our excuse to go back inside the loop. :)

    I go back and forth pretty easily. The longest I will typically do in my VFF is about 9 miles. My calves burn the next day at that distance.

    I'm currently looking into a pair of Terra Planta...

    I know you said you aren't worried about the distance, but as an avid endurance athlete, I'm concerned that you are asking what your pace should be and the race is only two months away. That...

    Going along with rob's comment, your core strength is very important on the breathing. If your core is not strong, you will begin to slouch over as you running. This will decrease your lung...

    Hill repeats! Learn to love them.

    Like Nasno, I have to ask what distance? If you are currently at 8, 6 minute miles is a lofty goal. Very doable for a single mile, but quite substantial if you...

    PrimalHound - You can also try the eggs hard boiled. That is how I originally ate them. One morning we didn't have any hard boiled, so I downed a few raw. Now I just do it because it's quick! :)

    From my experience, it is the gels/shot bloks/bars/etc that get you on the run. I have found the Honey Stingers are the only thing that don't get my stomach. I also stay away from "sports drinks". ...
