  • All About "The Zone"

    We've all felt it, that zone when everything sees to work effortlessly.

    Perhaps it was during a run. Perhaps it was during a life or death situation or while at your desk where time disappeared and words effortlessly flow from your brain to the word document.

    No matter what the circumstances were, where you were at, or what the activity actually was, the zone can be experienced.

    A new book has been released called The Rise of Superman, and its topic is that coveted "zone".

    "This is our ...

  • Get Ahead of Overuse Injuries

    "Similarly, persistently running in the same manner reduces the variability of our individual stride "signature." Gradually, structures become overspecialized. When excess monotony, fatigue, soreness or injury reduce our ability to vary aspects of our stride, our capacity to disperse mechanical stress diminishes. Loading stress becomes focused on an ever decreasing set of hot spots on -- bones, tendons and muscles -- and the risk of overuse injuries escalates. Conversely, when our variability ...

  • Make Happiness Happen

    “The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it's all that matters.”
    ― Audrey Hepburn

    After years of interacting with many athletes, patterns start to show themselves.

    The pattern relating to happiness is that runners have their best training and racing when they are happy and enjoying themselves the most.

    It does not matter what comes first, a happy runner or great training/racing. What's important is that they fit together and affect each other as they come and go.

  • Phase-X Review

    Team SKORA member Graham gives us his thoughts on our new Phase-X.

    "If you're a morning or night runner, you owe it to your safety to check this shoe out. You've never seen a shoe pop like this when headlights hit it. The whole thing lights up, not just some little tag. Enough about that, though how does the shoe run?"

    Check out the entire review here!

  • Running Hutch

    Tiffany (aka Hutch) and her husband did a great He Said She Said review of the Phase and Form.

    "Almost feels barefoot. Phase is wider and flatter through the arch than my Merrell Barefoot shoes and have a less constricted, more sock-like feel. Phase also has a slightly thicker toe box which is appreciated for protection. The heal of the shoe comes above some of my low-cut socks. These are my favorite shoes to wear around the house because of how light and comfortable they are."

  • Running with the Kenyans

    Below are two articles from Neil Scholes at Kinetic-Revolution.com, where he discusses observations from his time spent with the Kenyan Olympic Team.

    Kinetic Revolution is a wealth of information, and definitely worth spending some time at to increase your knowledge base.

    While the Kenyan athletes he worked with have abilities far beyond most of ours, we can still learn from them and apply their work ethics and habits to our own, in a hope to better ourselves.

  • Real Review - Barefoot Angie Bee

    Our friend Angie Bee recently reviewed the Core. Thanks go out to her for the great read and well done article!

    "Another unique and brilliant aspect of the Skora Cores is the asymmetric lacing system. It lets you tighten for comfort and yet not put undue pressure on the top of the foot. It also sports the fabulous Burrito Tongue! No, thats not what it is really called but it should be! The tongue wraps around the foot so no stopping to adjust the tongue. All shoes should have this tongue!

  • Pronation: What would you do without it?

    As a massage therapist, kinesiology instructor, and author, Rick Merriam is a wealth of valuable knowledge.

    Engaging Muscles is Rick's website. Next time you feel like going in-depth with reading, sit back with a cup (or two) of coffee and enjoying some of his articles. His latest is below:

    ----------
    As you proceed down the functional path to build the complete athlete, keep this analogy in mind. The way that force is imparted into the ground and the subsequent ground reaction go a long way ...
