Check out Coach Sherry’s column in the Arizona Daily Sun about the benefits of trail running shoes.
“Many runners would rather take their chances with a sprained ankle or bruised foot than trade in their favorite road runners for the running equivalent of a tractor trailer. Want to add a little more difficulty to 30-minute climb on a 15 percent grade at 8,000 feet? Throw on a pair of trail shoes from about 10 years ago. Fortunately, a lot has changed in 10 years. Technology has advanced and every major running shoe manufacturer offers a lightweight, stable, protective, breathable trail running shoe.”
