Hello everybody!

As you know, Matt is one of an estimated 11 million Americans who have food allergies. This condition results in over 30,000 emergency room visits and 150 to 200 deaths each year in the United States from accidental ingestions of allergic food.

A large number of the deaths occur in children eating outside their home at school or other public places. There is no cure for food allergies. Strict avoidance of the offending food is the only way to prevent Matt from having a potentially life threatening allergic reaction.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I showed it to a friend who thought that people who don't deal with allergies might think it's over the top. I was thinking about toning it down a bit, maybe I'll leave it now [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

If anyone has any suggestions, I'm ready for them! Meg

Feet differ between people. These variances include the height of the foot arch. There are people with extremely high arches and those with almost none at all. These arches effect what kind of shoe a runner needs to choose. Different shoes are designed to provide a range of support. Nike Air Max 24/7

The fitting of a shoe must also factor in how a person places their foot on the ground with each stride. There is a tremendous impact on the body with each step. air max womens Air Max 2009 Nike Air Max 2011 There are runners who strike with the heel first and others who run differently. Athletes also land more on one side of the foot than the other. These differences must be taken into account when fitting is done. Nike Air Max 2011

There are many products made by well known manufacturers. Many of them offer charts that narrow down their shoes for different people. This information can usually found online. This can be helpful for a runner to choose a shoe. One of the best ways to figure out what the best shoe is for each person is to consult with the experts at a running store. The associates there can take the time to observe the person and make recommendations. Several styles can then be tried on and the best fit for running shoes can be found. Nike Air Max 2010
