The Future of Running Is...

Alicia over at In Healthy Habits We Trust asked me to think about what the future of running will be like.  In the fun, futuristic way.  Creative thinking (and wishing!) at its best!

1) Color changing shoes.  I'm one of those types of people that has to match.  My shirt has to match my shorts/skirt which matches my socks, which matches my Sweatyband.  But there's nothing I can do about changing the color of my shoes.  In the future, you'll be able to set it up on the computer so you can change the color of your shoes to match your outfit or mood for the day.

2) Our bodies will evolve and will be able to regulate our temperatures.  Meaning that we no longer have to feel hot and sweaty when we run (or cold when we start in minimal clothing!)

3) Ice packs and ice baths no longer!  There will be a device that shoots a blast of super frigid air to the area that will have the same effect as icing that area!  Woohoo!

What do YOU think the future of running looks like? let me know in the comments and then head over to In Healthy Habits We Trust to join in the link up! to get the code for the banner, see the very end of this post!

  1. LOVE all of these!!! Especially the last two - I avoid ice baths with a passion but they are so beneficial. It would be great to get the benefits without the painful cold! And if I could regulate my body temperature, running in the heat would not be as terrible as it is now. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas, I love them!

    1. I haven't tried an ice bath yet. I'm such a wimp!

    1. I hate that my shoes don't match my outfits!
