PACE IT NOT RACE IT! // BY MELISSA VANDEWATER

There are races where we conquer and others where we learn.  In 2011, I distinctly remember going out very hard at the Sydney Half Marathon.  One massive error pre race was throwing my finish line bag on the truck, with gels still in it! The second error was my pace.  When the gun went, I took off as if I would win.  I could see the lead group of females and I was sitting just…

WHY DO I REALLY RUN? // CHRIS WHITE FROM GO RUN AUSTRALIA – 17 MARATHONS IN 2017

I have always said to people that I am a completely different person when I don’t exercise. My wife and other family members will definitely back that statement up!  I am one of these people who get bored easily and have a lot of nervous energy, so for me running is my outlet and main form of relaxation and de-stressing. I guess it is my equivalent to meditation or yoga. It would be easy to…

Motivation is high for 2017 but this why you should not go too hard, too quick! // by David Lipman

Goldilocks, Horses with Broken Backs for Courses and Stealing from Peter Aside from clearly being partial to a catchy headline and a cliché I take my greatest pleasure in helping people in their lives and athletic endeavours. It is with this in mind that I have decided to put together an article addressing some of the ultra-hip things in sports and recovery from the nerdy coal face of ‘the literature’. My closet nerd has been…

The Wave Rider is a neutral mid weight (290g for the men and 240g for the women) training shoe my orthotics fit…

Mizuno Sayonara 3 Review // Time to say goodbye to the 2!

In the name of open disclosure I must declare; I’ve loved the Wave Sayonara from day 1 and have run through at least 2 pairs of 1’s and 4 pairs of 2’s, including completing my first marathon in them.   I must also mention they are the only pair of shoes that I didn’t hate when I first put them on, I usually use my second run as a first impression as I tend to…

HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT RUNNING SHOES // THE RUNDOWN BY CHRIS WIGELL

Whether you are an occasional or regular runner, the shoes you wear can have a positive or negative impact on your progression. From preventing injury when distance training, to coping with speed for sprinting; there is no one-size-fits-all approach.

#transformyourrun // Running Saved Rob’s Life

Running helped save my life At the age of 34 I was an extremely fit and active person doing adventure races and really enjoying my running until my life changed forever. One afternoon I was bringing in the wheelie bin when it fell out of my hand. I picked it up again to have it only fall out for a second time. I then began to feel light headed, so I grabbed the bin with…
