So what haven't they invented yet?

That could help with our running?

What I notice is, the nearer to the front end of a race you get, the less gimmicks the runners seem to have.
Personally I don't think I could do with any more gadgets etc. To get faster I need to train more.

Probably not. Have experimented with both and not really seen a noticeable difference.

Slightly off topic, but relevant, I have found that the little bag I got my christmas-present event clips in is perfect for keeping all my safety pins in one place ready for raceday.

I find if amusing that you now pay more money for less shoe

I saw a pair of Adidas Springblades in the shops. Seriously, I'd be embarrassed to turn up to event wearing those. For a start, if you didnt win the race, you'd look a plonker.

Rocket boots.

Intravenous gel drips.

I'm waiting for the scientists to be able to translate the posting of complete bollocks on these fora into the same physical benefits I'd achieve from going outside and running

I'm still waiting for power laces and the self drying jacket from back to the future, though I will settle for some superted rocket boots

Victory of marketing. Make something you might want, and soon enough it becomes something you need.

In regards of the Marathon, excluding Mo this year, it's strange that with all of the new technology and knowledge we have the times of British male runners are nowhere near where they were 25 years ago.

Running clothes that never smell. Won't make me run any faster but will make my house smell better!

Catalin bond. Those exist Already. You just need to wash them every so often.

They could invent a timing chip that checks your progress more often than at VLM so cheating would be harder.

Shoes that maintain that lovely smell they have when new.

Chia and manuka gel drips.
Injury treatment that actually works.
Nano tech clothing that enhances muscular performance (whilst not imparting an artificial advantage on the wearer).

Easy answer to this. If you look at a picture of distance runners 30 years back you'll see how thin they all seemed to be. That was because food was basic, functional and tasteless.

With the exception of 'Mo', even our top runners are carrying (a hidden) spare tyre.

Reading in the paper this morning about a website where the time poor can have a part-time dog. A dating site of sorts for those that can't commit to full time pet ownership:
I did have to check it wasn't April 1st ...

I wrote why 'capitalism doesn't help everyone' in 649 pages less than some Professor in France did.

The vast majority simply cannot deny themselves 'tempting affordable' stuff. The stuff is affordable since its just a couple of quid here and there. However, it all adds up.

I only have to watch my sister around the shops to see that. "Ooh that looks nice! 'have it", and that and this. A coffee & sandwich a few times a day. 

The alternative to being denied the stuff of 'modern life' in order to lay claim to some 'big ticket' items is to go into financial hibernation for a few years.

Not many are prepared to cut themselves off like that.

It would be quite cool to be able to show undying love for a global shoemaking brand while not actually you know, wearing shoes. But to be able to do it in a cool way that matches this season's colour scheme.
