My running shoes recently got wet on a training run; any suggestions of how to dry them out properly?

The number one enemy of running shoes is excessive moisture. Rather than putting them on a heater (which will dry them too fast and damage the materials) fill them with newspaper. The newspaper will draw out the moisture and dry the shoes without damaging them. This’ll also make sure your shoes stay stink-free, which is an added bonus we can all get on board with.

I have been training in rough terrain running shoes and do most of my training through fields and off road; will they be ok for use on the road when it comes to race day?
