Training Derailed. What’s next? And Shoes!

My training for the Dirty German Endurance Fest got derailed by my stupid stomach issues. I ended up at the GI and am currently in the midst of several procedures being done to figure out what's going on. Needless to say, I will not be ready to run 50 miles in 3 weeks. I was … Continue reading Training Derailed. What’s next? And Shoes!

The Friday Five – Running Shoes!!

If there's one thing I can always talk about, it's running shoes! My number 1 is, and will always be the Brooks PureFlow 2. I don't even want to think about how much money I've spent trying to find a replacement since they got discontinued.  I've gone through 5 pairs of the PF2, and even … Continue reading The Friday Five – Running Shoes!!
