wannabe ultra runner?

I'd rather run for as long as I can and slow down later if needed as long as I'm running at a nice gentle pace it seems to work, upto 50m anyway! I did a 50k starting at road marathon pace minus 30 seconds which led to a very painful last 10 miles, I wouldn't recommend that tactic!

I did the summer plod too fairy clogs, was a lovely course, marking did seem to be a little sporadic in places though, a few times I had to run back and make sure I was still on track! I managed to have a lovely swim in the big too!

In the end I went for the under armour long shorts, slightly see through but really light and half the price of 2xU and no hem bulges!

Can anyone recommend Paul Harradine for orthotics?

Paul is good, I've ditched my orthotics now they didn't fix my problem but I have seen 4 different podiatrists over the years and can't fault Paul!

Thanks they look good but I haven't had much luck with liners staying put, I've only tried mizuno though!

Nope just like them tight so that they don't ride up, size bigger doesn't work, it's not the waist that is the problem it's the leg hem,

Can anyone recommend the tight cycling style shorts that aren't too unflattering? I like the skins shorts A200 as they are light and tight, but they do look pretty nasty where the hems squeeze you in more than the material, I've seen lots of people out and about in shorts that look good, any recommendations?
