Total Relief Footwear Doubles in Size

Total Relief Footwear doubled in size to 2,500 square feet in July. The expansion into the nutrition store next door allows for much better traffic flow throughout the store. It also provides the extra space needed to bring in additional pain-relief and foot care merchandise.

"I don't know how we did it before we expanded." says owner Cam White. "When we were busy, people were stepping over each other as they tried on their Z-CoiL shoes. Now people can walk around the store and really experience the unique "feel" of the footwear.

The new, expanded space has enabled Total Relief Footwear to add a variety of new products including foot massagers, insoles, tea tree oil products, allergy relief products, shoe horns and much more.

2nd Annual .2K Run
Sunday, April 3, 2005
www.chooseaustinfirst.com
For the second year in a row, beautiful weather graced the Choose Austin First .2k Run. Hundreds of people attended the event, sampling free food and beverages, listening to live music and visiting with Austin-owned businesses, including Total Relief Footwear.

Poking light-hearted fun at the Austin running community, the .2k is described “As Far As You Can Run Without Spilling Your (Root) Beer.” The event was held on the grounds of Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse on West 5th Street in downtown Austin.




Attendees were given a race bib and encouraged to weave their way through a course of over 75 vendor booths. After getting the required number of stamps on their race bibs, they received a .2K T-Shirt acknowledging that they had finished this “grueling” race. Along the way, participants savored free food from restaurants including Maudie’s, El Arroyo, Mangia Pizza, Iguana Grill and many others. To top things off, free samples of Amy’s Ice Cream and plenty of liquid refreshments were also available.

Runners and Z-CoiLs

Thousands of runners experience foot, leg and back injuries every year. Running is a strenuous activity, with forces of up to 5 times your body weight being absorbed with each pounding stride.
Runners are starting to use Z-CoiL® footwear as a training and post-race recovery shoe. Dave Frank and Tish Mendick, co-owners of a Z-CoiL dealership in Omaha, Nebraska wear their Z-CoiLs before, during and after each marathon they enter. “I did a 20 mile training run a week before the Freescale marathon, said Tish Mendick. I didn’t feel like I had to work that hard to complete the run.”

Dave finished the Chicago marathon, Marine Corps marathon and the Freescale marathon in his Z-CoiLs. Tish said, “After the Chicago marathon, my girlfriends were exhausted. They couldn’t move. I went out dancing that evening!” Dave observes that his recovery time is reduced from weeks down to a few days after running a marathon in Z-CoiLs.

As a distance training shoe, Z-CoiLs are very beneficial because they allow runners to get their miles in without excessive wear and tear on the joints. “They’ve made my running effortless,” says Kathi Keyes an athlete that competes in triathlons. Kathi remarks that the footwear allows her to increase her training schedule because there is less recovery time between runs. “After running 7 – 10 miles, I usually need a few days to recover from the pounding that my knees and back take,” says Kathi. “With Z-CoiLs, I have no pain the day after a training run."

Many runners are very picky, even superstitious about their race-day footwear, and opt to race in popular running shoes. After running a 10k event, half or full marathon – the body really takes a pounding. As a post-race recovery shoe, Z-CoiLs are an excellent footwear choice for angry and inflamed joints. By reducing the shock of impact on all joints by 50 percent, Z-CoiLs dramatically speed up the recovery process.
