Running is both a competition and a type of training for sports that have running or endurance components. As a sport, it is split into events divided by distance and sometimes includes permutations such as the obstacles in steeplechase and hurdles. Running races are contests to determine which of the competitors is able to run a certain distance in the shortest time. Today, competitive running events make up the core of the sport of athletics. Events are usually grouped into several classes, each requiring substantially different athletic strengths and involving different tactics, training methods, and types of competitors.

Reviewer: BrendaC from Surrey, BC Canada
having an injury to my right foot I needed a shoe that was lightweight, gave support and allowed me to walk whilst the foot healed. This Asics model does all this and looks good too.

Merrell Vapor Glove Almost perfect

Reviewer: yuper from White Plains, NY
I ordered it because I wanted a shoe I could wear barefoot in summer. I loved the look of the shoe and the fit was fine. When I walked in it, however, i found that the front edge of the tongue where it was attached to the shoe scratched the top of my foot. Feeling it with my nand, I found that edge to be poorly attached. That seam should be covered and smooth. I didn't think it was a good bet to wear without socks.
New Balance W890v3 Colorful walking shoe
May 30, 2013
Reviewer: Nancy from Seattle, WA
I usually buy New Balance for my daily 2-mile walks. I found I have to buy one size up on all athletic shoes so as not to crunch my toes in the toe box. I wear size 10 in regular street shoes, but got an 11 in the New Balance (as always). This shoe is lighter weight than past purchases. Feels good on my feet and the color is great. I love purple.
Wears this shoe: Daily walks for exercise.
