In honor of the race this weekend, this edition of Friday Focus will highlight some of the running gear I use to get through every race and training session.
Shoes are the number one piece of gear you should get right every time and you should not skimp on quality or fit. You may have to go through several pairs of shoes before you get it exactly right, but it is worth it.
If you are new to running, I recommend going to a running store like FleetFeet Sports, FutureTrack or Roadrunner Sports to help you select the right shoe. Each of these stores have qualified runners who will evaluate your gate (stride pattern), foot strike and contour (pronation/supination) and type of shoe (street/trail/low profile).
I love knocking things off my to-do list. And, I love being able to have just the right tool to get it all done; however, I often have to go through many tools and apps to find the few that really help me get things done.
In today's Friday Focus, I want to spotlight five apps that help me get things done, but might not be first on the list when you think of productivity apps.
Grammarly – I use this tool to help me become a better writer. It sits in the background of my web browser and let's me know when I have misspellings, grammar issues and where I can improve my writing. There is a free version and a paid version.
In today's Friday Focus, I want to take a few minutes to honor the fallen of that tragic day – September 11, 2001. It is hard to believe it was fourteen years ago when the towers fell from the New York skyline.
