Chad has another question: “Brolympus, I see that Nike is selling $250 Zoom Vaporfly 4% sneakers, which they say will improve running by 4%. Should I buy these expensive shoes? Can I run faster the more I spend on shoes?”

Good question! Obviously shoes don’t make you go faster, money makes you go faster. So the more you spend on shoes the better. In fact, the Vaporfly is so popular that it’s sold out almost everywhere. The only place you can find it is on aftermarket sites for $300-plus. That’s good news, because if you spend $300 on a pair of shoes you’ll go even faster than if you only spent a measly $250!
