Blog 605 – 605 Running Co. – Running Fitness Article

Blog 605 – 605 Running Co. Today was cold. Today was not the end of the running outside cold though. This morning I was greeted by the most beautiful full moon. Clear skies often mean cooler temperatures. I know this because my wife told me I’m in charge of the weather at our house.

Pointy Toes vs Flat Feet – Calisthenics Fitness Article

However, there are a large band of athletes (especially at the top level) who prefer flat feet over pointy toes. The question is, which is better and why? To…
