Newbie here!! I've been running for a while doing my first open water triathlon this Sunday. Just got my wife into running and she is doing really well, she was running in Asics Gel Galaxy 9 her feet started hurting. She went and had a gait analysis done and ended up with a very nice pair of Asics Gel-kayano 2B since using them doing 5k runs she has suffered with a side stich??? nothing in her routine has changed food distance style. I'm guessing as she is more comfy she is running faster which is causing her breathing to increase causing the stich. She ran in her Asics Gel Galaxy 9 last night and no stich until the last kilometer. her pace always speeds up to wards the end of her run so I'm guessing (again) pace increase faster uncontrolled breathing=stich. your thoughts and possible solutions would be appreciated. thanks Darren
