I was trying to think of a creative answer but the only thing I could think of that I did to "boost my run" (which I think means running faster or running further that you ever ran before) was training. Training is a crucial part of achieving something in any sport. You just don't decide on race day that you will achieve a personal best or run the longest distance you ever ran. You decide months before. You find a training plan and follow it to the best of your ability. On race day, you will achieve that goal.
I wrote a blog post on training before and I have found that running consistently at increasing speed and distance had proved great results. I was able to shave off minutes to my 21k Personal Record with training as consistently as I could 2 months before my first international race, the Rock and Roll Half Marathon Philadelphia.
Currently, I am training for my first Marathon, the Bull Runner Dream Marathon. I haven't ran farther than 21k before deciding to do this so I trained following a plan. I braved through 2 degree weather, got used to stinky gym smells and woke earlier that I should to go on my training runs. I even trained during my vacation trips. That's crazy enough right?

Boost your cushioning
The foundation of the ENERGY BOOST™ innovation is centred on proprietary cushioning
material, BOOST™, that allows the runner to feel a continuous energy return. The
revolutionary technology allows small energy capsules in the soles to store and unleash
energy more efficiently with every stride.
Boost your conditions
Holding its performance in almost any condition the exclusive BOOST™ material has been
proven to be three times more temperature-resistant than standard EVA material, thus
providing a more consistent and comfortable run.
“As a revolutionary material, BOOST™ combines the usually conflicting performance
benefits of soft and comfortable with firm and responsive cushioning. It almost makes the
shoe come to life, and you will feel it from the first moment you put it on. It sets a new standard, not only for running shoes, but for the entire industry, and all products going
forward,” said Bernd Wahler, Head of Innovation for adidas.
Boost your comfort
The adidas ENERGY BOOST™ innovation goes beyond the revolutionary midsole
technology. The upper on the ENERGY BOOST™ features adidas Techfit technology, which
provides optimal comfort and support to the entire foot while in motion.
Additional features include a special mid-foot support frame, an extended TORSION® system
to minimise roll for more stability, adiwear outsole to reduce wear in key soles areas and an
external heel counter to maximise the heel fit and comfort. The adidas ENERGY BOOST™ is
