The healthy human foot's outer arch may be more flexible than previously thought....
.....There was nothing wrong with any of these feet, the scientist emphasizes. It's our definition of normal that needs to change.
"A sports shoe with a lot of arch support might not be such a great idea," he says. A bit of cushioning is fine. "But I'd look for a shoe that lets your toes wiggle and doesn't constrain foot motion. You want your foot to be able to move and flatten because that's what it's designed to do."

What a great idea the parkrun is and the perfect way to get people up and out of their beds early on a bright sunny morning to meet others in one of Dublin's finest parks.....I went along for a peek this morning and was pleasantly surprised at the turn out on an August bank holiday weekend! Very well organized, great atmosphere and so good to see people taking an interest in running to keep fit.
The run starts at 9.30am and afterwards many enjoy a well earned coffee in the Marlay Café or go to the market beside Marlay House where there are lots of goodies for sale from coffees to freshly baked breads/cakes, fresh fish, butchers, heaps of fresh fruit, every kind of olive
and so much more! Well worth a visit if you're in the area, I'll definitely be back.
