Coach Hillary Kigar shares a tip she picked up while listening to a lecture delivered by esteemed distance running coach Jack Daniels.

Shoelaces come untied, loosen, bind and can be a knot in your stride. Too loose makes for sloppy striding, too tight and shoes bind and pinch. Here are three lacing methods to keep you running in your sweet spot. (Our step-by-step directions come from Ian’s Shoelace Site.)
(also known as “straight bar lacing” or “parallel lacing”)
Try this: if the top of your shoes feel tight or bind.
• Begin straight across on the outside and go in through the bottom eyelet.
• The left lace end runs straight up on the inside, and then goes straight across on the outside.
• Both lace ends run straight up the inside, each skipping an eyelet.
• Both lace ends continue straight across on the outside and in through the adjacent eyelets.
• Alternate until lacing is completed.
