are for running. This article also provided a new perspective, by including running spikes to the equation. If I had read this article beforehand I would have changed my question to include these shoes. In all cases, running spikes and minimalist shoes ( labeled as marathon shoes in this article) improves running speed and decreased cases of injury. I chose article two because it talked about the bodies mechanics and how we are already perfectly designed to run without huge cushioned shoes. This article talked the most about injuries and how we should be running. It described how certain shoes can change our bodies

3 mechanics and form injuries in different locations based off how much of our mechanics have been changed. I chose article three because it was the best article explaining the differences between minimalist shoes and cushioned shoes. It told me how minimalist shoes could improve speed while also improving the biomechanics of runners. This article did not directly say that minimalist shoes reduce injury; However, based one the data one could easily come to this conclusion. Minimalist shoes reduce stomping when running, this is because they force you to strike with the front or middle of your foot. These shoes also reduce ground contact time, meaning your steps are lighter and faster.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
