How annoying is it to get going on a run, and you look down to see that your shoelace has spontaneously untied itself? You can't just ignore the flapping laces or else you might trip and really hurt yourself.
I learned this great sneaker tying trick from a fellow runner, and while to may seem a bit silly to review a skill most of us learned in Kindergarten, this technique was new to me. Now I never have to worry about my laces.
This method works much better than doing a regular double knot because when it's time to take your sneaker off, you just have to pull firmly on one of the ends. With your shoes firmly tied, now you can concentrate on your run.
