First Tip -
SHOE'S - your feet will thank you for the best possible coverage however there is a variety of experiences out there and all have merit and are worth a look. everything from minimalist through to the advanced options - you will know when you are wearing the right shoe for you.

Having used 9 pairs whilst on the run in Chile, I recall on many occasions getting to the end of the run life of one pair and stepping straight into the next and not only feeling a renewed energy in my step but also I was amazed that I had no need to wear them in or adjust to the new show, they just slipped on and made the job easy.
Puma have some wonderful models with a wide range and their lightweight construction really captured my attention.
Try out a pair -
