How to tie your shoes... really

Pardon the use of Internet acronyms, but OMG:

I am 29 years old and just found out that I don't know how to tie my shoes properly. I have always wondered why I have to use double knots to prevent my shoes from untying.

Runner's World instructional video here:

If you're in the same boat as me, the video recommends reversing what you do in Step 3, though I am finding it easier to reverse Step 1 instead.

And with no further need to tie double knots, I expect to shave a full 2 seconds off my T2 time!

Switch to elastic laces - then you can have a fast transition without having to learn how to tie your shoes.
