Established in 2014, Abilene Running Co. was created to fulfill the needs of Big Country Runners. Why buy a pair of shoes off the shelf at a big box retailer or a website from someone you have never met? If you want running to be enjoyable, having the proper gear makes all of the difference. As a runner myself, I understand why this is important. As a penny pincher, I understand the importance of value and want the best deal possible. I am not a fan of spending my hard earned money on a product that doesn't work. This is why Abilene Running Co. only carries products from companies that were created by runners, for runners, and that I would use when I run.
Joe Cook - I started running at the age of 25 after my aunt asked me to run a half marathon with her. Having never run before, except those mandatory runs in gym class, and having asthma, I was intrigued, but extremely nervous. I began running in my store bought shoes, but quickly discovered the agony of shin splints. After visiting a running store, they informed me that I over pronated and my shoes weren't helping me. They fitted me into a pair of Asics which helped stabilize my stride. I trained for 4 months getting ready for my first half marathon. Ran the OKC Half Marathon in 1:58:26. I was hooked...and sore. Hello IT Bands! I just assumed this was part of it. Ran 7 more half marathons over the next several years. Same results, IT Band swelling = painful recovery. I loved running, but this was getting old. I wore enough KT Tape on my legs, I looked like a robot. Not to mention the chiropractor adjustments on my back and neck. At a race expo, fate stepped in and I was introduced to Newton Running. These guys changed my running life. They looked at my stride and saw that I was heel striking on every stride. They put me in a pair of Sir Issac's. These shoes trained me to run more on the front part of my foot, landing more center, thus reducing impact on my body. I noticed a difference almost immediately. Next 2 Half Marathons were my best ever. No IT Band issues, no back issues, no shin splints! I was convinced. Proper gear makes all of the difference. Now I am training for full marathons and loving every mile of it.
