DOR Podcast #73: Selecting Shoes for Newer Runners, How Long Running Shoes Last, and On Cloudboom Echo Thoughts

In today's episode we revisit conversations that have been had regarding foam, namely discussing what changes foam leads to on the body and how long foam may last in a shoe. We then highlight our new guide that helps people consider what to think about when purchasing their first pair of running shoes (or close to it). Embedded in those discussions are pearls of advice for preparing our bodies to run, what this sport demands of our bodies, and how we can be the smartest runners possible.

Meet our New Audio Engineer, BJ McGeever!

We are excited to welcome BJ McGeever to the Doctors of Running team! He joins us as our new audio engineer for the podcast. He's done wonders for our first two podcasts of the year already and we're excited to continue our work with him to make our audio the best yet.

About BJ: BJ McGeever is an audio engineer living in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelors of Arts in Communications and Spanish. He’s spent his professional career as an audio/video producer for churches, specializing in live music engineering. BJ picked up running at the beginning of 2019 and was quickly hooked, soon finding himself with far too many shoes. He joined Doctors of Running in early 2022 with the goal of taking the podcast to new heights. He’s finding his way back to full fitness after an injury-plagued 2021, with a half marathon coming up in March. He lives in The Woodlands, TX with his wife Allison, two kids, Penelope and Benjamin, and dog (and faithful running partner) Koda.
