Do runners...

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Do runners have a forum where they sit around all day and talk about shoes?

Discuss.

No. This is why you don't see overweight runners wearing $10k Adidas.

I got into running for a little while a while back. Coolrunning.com used to be a pretty buzzin place with lots of runners sitting around talking about whatever, shoes included. Looks like they changed it for the worse lately though.

Why, did "RunningshoesDirect". become a sponser of the site, then the mods decided to ban some of the more entertaining members for ticky tac violations.

No, many running sites are much like bikeforums, as in, nothing to do with biking.

Here is where I spend more time than any other site:

www.runnersworld.com has a forum. There are subfora for marathoners, crosscountry, women, whatever. Same as here.

Interesting question. I've been fairly serious about running, cycling, photography, and fishing at one time or another over the last 9 years. I've spent a lot of time on internet forums for cycling, photography, and fishing. But I've never been to a running forum. Maybe it's because I ran track and cross country in high school and didn't feel the need to go read stuff about running on the net.

Being a runner converted cyclist, I have reasons why there are no running forums.
1. There is nothing to buy. You have your shoes, which should be fitted correctly. After that, it is a few articles of clothing but nothing big. Maybe a nice heart rate monitor.
2. Race strategies barely exist. In most running races, the best runner will win, so strategy means very little. Plus teammates can't do much for you (they can't drag you to the finish line without getting DQ'd, its happened to me).
3. There are no week long tours to discuss.
4. You can run anywhere, and when you travel 10 miles or less, as opposed to a 100 on a bike, the route and variations in the route do not matter as much.

No but riding down a hill looks much more fun than running.

Cycling in 20F is completely enjoyable. And easier on your knees.
