Preparing for a run is no easy task. Even those who have already finished a couple of marathons should not take the preparations lightly. But the thing is, most runners, especially the first-timers, focus on getting physically fit for the run, but some tend to forget other things to prepare such as the shoes to wear on the day of the run. Sometimes these things are done in haste, but I personally believe that preparing what to wear and what to bring for the run is equally important as preparing your physique to finish your marathon.
Okay, given that you already have your shoes for the run. My next question will be this: do you already have your round athletic shoelaces? Well, if that question caught you off guard, you might be less prepared than you think you are for this upcoming run of yours. I suggest you stop that workout for a while, put that protein shake down, and read on as quite frankly; this blog post may just be what you need to beat your personal record on marathons (a bit of exaggeration, but you see my point.) Well let me just start this with answering the question on your mind right now: what in the world are round athletic shoelaces? And why in the world would I need it for my marathon?
First and foremost, ‘round athletic shoelaces ‘are one among many types of shoelaces there are in the market. And in my opinion, every athlete and even every amateur runner should have at least one pair of these reserved for such athletic events. This is because from the name itself, these round athletic shoe strings are specifically designed to fit the lifestyle of athletes that are truly different from those who are not so active physically.
Imagine you’re in the middle of your run. Your legs are feeling the strain, but you feel that the momentum you have right now is enough to take you down the final stretch. All in all, you are feeling good about this run, when all of a sudden; you trip over one of your shoelaces. You don’t want to stop running but that would mean risking life and limb later on because undone shoelaces could even mean your life (no kidding this time!) So you bend down to tie up your unruly shoelaces, and when you look up again to pick up on your run, you suddenly feel dizzy and all the momentum’s gone.
This is in actuality how it feels when you have to stop for anything just when you’re feeling the momentum. And it is exactly what could possibly happen if you do not gear up with a pair of round athletic shoelaces for your run! See, this is what I was talking about when I said that these seemingly small considerations could actually cost you your whole successful run! And if you do not want those mentioned above to happen to you, I suggest you really invest in; yes you know it – round athletic shoelaces. After all, these are not that expensive if you know where to look!
