Tri856 Kick Off Party – Spring 2019 – Aistriu Marlton

Very excited to be invited back once again for the Tri856 Kick Off Party held this year at Aistriu in Marlton, NJ! We practically broke the seams of the Haddonfield Running Co last year, so in order to grow had to move over to Aistriu! We are always thankful to our friends at the Running Co of Haddonfield for ALWAYS BEING THE BEST, but this club is growing by leaps and bounds in 2019!

Triathletes, Triathlon coaches, Road Bikes, Mountain Bikes, Chiropractors and Physical Therapists all combined under one roof for more than a few reasons to chat all kinds of issues surrounding the sport of triathlon! If you were worried that we didn’t have any fun, just see the pictures below!

Thank you SO VERY MUCH to Aistriu for hosting our event, not kicking us out for being corny and in general just being FANTASTIC HOSTS!

Thank you SO VERY MUCH to Tri856 for making sure we were invited and had plenty of space to show off and demo Active Release Techniques!

Thank you very much for placing us perfectly between two great physical therapy groups! We kept them from turning the opportunity to turn this into a physical therapist cage match (just kidding).

Outside Opinion – Shoes on the finishers at the Kona IronMan 2014

Competitor Magazine has become my new running magazine.  Dr. Kemenosh recently laid a copy on my desk to read and it has been fantastic!  The magazine was good, but the online content has been even better.  With Dr. Mark and I constantly giving each other the raspberries about running shoes and endurance training, I could not miss a link that appeared on Competitor magazines website.


Article:  Sole Man: The Shoes Of Ironman

Author:  Brian Metzler

Notes about the author:  Brian Metzler is the editor-in-chief of Competitor magazine. He has raced every distance from 50 yards to 100 miles and run in more than 700 pairs of running shoes in the past 25 years.

Authors Bio:

The article above, which I encourage you to take a look at if you like running shoes as much as Dr. Kemenosh and I, do shows that the top running shoes finishing at the Kona IronMan races last weekend were as follows, ASICS, Saucony, Newton, and Brooks.  No big surprise there, those all seem like very logical choices, however, when you go a little farther down the list, Dr. Kemenosh’s new love affair with the Hoka One One is being validated again as 6 percent of IronMan runners wore Hoka’s.  That is a huge climb from 2013 (1.9 percent) and 2012 (1.2 percent).  If you want me to quantify that a bit for you, more runners at the Kona IronMan wore Hoka’s than Mizuno, Zoot, Nike and New Balance!

The article goes onto explain that you can’t put too much stock into these findings as triathlon and long distance endurance athletes do tend to be a bit “gear crazy” as the author states.  Secondly, they were only to count shoes by the BRAND and it’s not a specific model count.  Ultimately, there is no serious science here, but it’s somewhat apparent that endurance and running athletes are making some choices with their feet out there.
