Under Armour Underfoot »

Just when you thought you’d figured out which running shoes you liked best, another company has thrown their shoe in the ring. Less than two weeks ago, Under Armour announced that they will be entering the running shoe market in early 2009. About Ian Hello, my name is Ian and I’m a runner. After several […]

About Ian

Hello, my name is Ian and I'm a runner. After several years of promising to train for and run the Bolder Boulder 10K I finally signed up for it in 2005 with zero training under my belt. Shocked that I was slower than I thought I should be, I made it my goal to be faster the following year. I'm still not as fast as I should be, but I have been a runner ever since. I believe in quality miles over quantity of miles. I believe that you have to run faster in order to run faster, and I believe that I can. I believe in the Garmin. I believe in motion control and that I have an unhealthy addiction to running shoes. I believe in carb loading and tapering, even before a 5K. I believe I’ll never need to buy another t-shirt ever again. I live to run and I run for the post race spread, where the free food and drink flows like milk and honey, and sometimes even includes milk and honey.

Product Review:Adidas Adizero PR »

I bought a pair of the Adidas Adizero PR’s as I am converting to a minimalist shoe, and let me first say that this is the first racing flat I have ever worn, even trying one on in the store. If you have never worn a racing shoe, imagine wearing a pair of ballet slippers, […]

A Love Affair »

I love running shoes. There’s something great about the life-cycle of a good pair of shoes. It starts with the hydrocarbon smell and the crinkle of paper in a new shoe box. It ends with memories of miles and races, and a new pair of sneakers for bumming around and mowing the yard. Between, there’s […]

About Bill Jankowski

Jank is the nom-de-plume (alias) of Bill Jankowski. Jank is a runner (defined as “one who runs”, without any necessary claims of athleticism). More accurate would be to say that he enjoys the company of his iPod, and goes to great lengths to get long periods of time alone with his thoughts. Plus, running is a wonderful way to keep his ego in check. He’s been physically active since he was a kid (assuming that, for the years 1995-1999 and 2001-2003, drinking counts as “active”), playing Soccer, Flag Football, Basketball, and Softball while in college (for his fraternity’s B-team)(Actually, add 1990-1994 to the years of inactivity). In addition to running, Jank swims (controlled drowning), bikes (’cause his mom suggested he play in traffic as a kid), and kayaks (see swimming, but with sharks and props). An engineer by the grace of God, a (recovering) submariner by the graces of the taxpayers of the United States, and an MBA by mistake, Bill enjoys gear (oooh, shiny!), cycling (oooh, shiny bikes and clothes!), and poking at accepted ideas with a pointy stick. In 2004, Jank decided he didn’t want to go full-over to being fat, and took up running (instead of stopping eating). In 2005, he finished his first marathon (WooHoo!) in October, and his second two weeks later (dumb idea). He is still recovering. Bill lives in Connecticut (the poorer, eastern part) with his lovely wife Melissa (who is far more fit than he is and way less navel-gazing about it), and their two sons, Jake and Nate, who, in addition to having deliberately cool names, are the finest children to grace the Earth (clear proof that “evolution through natural selection” is bunk; although he still questions the monthly bill for “Pool Boy” despite not having a swimming pool). His rants can be found at runmystic.jankowskis.net; his best stuff is found here at CRN.

Retail Therapy: Speed Laces »

retail-therapy.png

Friction is the name of the game. Where regular laces are unable to expand and contract, Speed Laces move the lacing to the surface of the shoe and eliminates friction. The best part is the lacing automatically adjusts to changing pressures of the feet during a run and lace tension is always equal throughout the […]

eBay for Running Shoes? »

Many people do not think of eBay when they are shopping for running shoes. I have found that eBay is an excellent service for finding and buying the shoes that I already know so well that I have practically named them and have told others that they are the best shoe in the world! You […]
