This is part two of A Day in the Life of Mo Farah and Galen Rupp, filmed in April 2013 and first shown in August 2013 during the Moscow World Champs. It was filmed in Portland courtesy of Alberto Salazar and the IAAF, with the filming done by The Shoe Addicts. The visit to Moscow was important for me, as I had been trying to go since 1972, when I was offered a month working on a collective farm. My mother refused to allow me to go then, but wrote me a note in 2013, telling me that she was please that I was finally in Russia, post Soviet Union, and it had only taken 41 years. So, was I. I loved my visit to Moscow, the history, the people and the stadium.
We visited Mo Farah and Galen Rupp, along with Matt Centrowitz and Cam Levin, in April. On April 13, 2013, thanks to the graciousness of Alberto Salazar, we spent a day observing and asking questions.
On August 10, 2013, Mo Farah defeated his nemesis, Ibrahim Jeilan over the last 200 meters to win the 10,000m title that had eluded him in 2011. Galen Rupp finished fourth after fighting a tough battle for third, improving from his sixth in Daegu. His fourth place improved the highest finish by an American in the 10,000 ever (his sixth was the best before).
Mo Farah and Galen Rupp are training partners. Here is the second A Day in the Life, Mo Farah & Galen Rupp, part deux, courtesy of the IAAF. This video was prepared by the Shoe Addicts, the digital partners of

More on the Nike Superfly Elite (Video below with Cregg Weinmann)Nike Superfly Elite $150.jpg

This was a video we did during the 2016 Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon. We asked Cregg Weinmann to provide a little behind the scenes on the Nike Superfly elite. Cregg explains how Nike came up with the amazing spike plate and shows that inspiration can come from many surprising places. Enjoy the video and make sure to check out!

This is the review for the Under Armour SpeedForm Mile Pro!

We are posting all of the reviews of track spikes by Cregg Weinmann, the long time footwear review editor for the RunningNetwork on @runblogrun. His reviews at are a great resource, and we encourage you to read them. They are a great resource to help you find the right shoe for you!

As many are running all comers meets, events in Europe, and for the best in the world, the 2017 World Championships, we are highlighting some of the finest track spikes on the shelves of local running stores.

We are partisan local running stores supporters: if you want the best running shoes, we suggest you a) go to running store at end of day, b) take a pair of clean socks and c) try on 4-6 pairs of training shoes or spikes. Price is only part of the picture, if you want the best running shoe or track spike for your needs!

Under Armour SpeedForm Miler Pro, $120miler pro speed form UA.jpg"Under Armour has shown a commitment to track and field and cross country with shoes for the sprints, distances, and hill 'n dale. The Speedform technology has proven to be quite successful for shoes which require the sleek upper fit, in particular the close fit of a distance spike. The upper is lightweight engineered mesh, with Speedform welding in the heel."

Ajee' Wilson recently pulled out of a meet that I was at, and I heard that there was an injury. Apparently, she was dealing with the USADA announcement about the Zeranol that she had ingested in her beef. That sure makes you feel confident of the U.S. meet supply. What do cows get from Zeranol that could make it help athletes run faster, jump farther or throw harder? Or, is this just one of those sacred mysteries?

This piece is from May 2013, and it is very appropriate today as we look on the Oxy High Performance meet coming May 18, 2017.

Peter Abraham ventured to the 2013 Oxy High Performance meet and saw the future of the sport. Social media, a great web site, a strongly presented digital press release are parts of what could make the 2013 Oxy High Performace meet the best track meet in America. Read on!

This is the beginning of a four part series on adidas apparel for 2017. adidas' Amy Evans spoke to The Shoe Addicts at the Running Event 2016 in Orlando last week, on upcoming adidas apparel product launches and updates. As Amy Evans tells us, runners like to look good, so adidas has focused on both fashion and function with the new apparel for 2017. Special thanks to Amy Evans for her knowledge and enthusiasm and The Shoe Addicts, the partners of RunBlogRun, for their video creations. Just one correction: The adidas Parley top retails for $80, not the $65 noted. Sorry about that!
