A week or so ago I recorded some running footsteps out in my neighborhood. I used my Audio Technica BP4025 and Zoom F3 recorder to make the recording. I put the microphone on a boom pole to get the running sound and I recorded the breathing by itself after I had run (and got a bit winded!). By recording it separately I was able to easily adjust it in post for the proper volume against the footsteps.
This sound is now available for purchase on Motion Array under the name Running Steps.
Take a listen to it below.
