exercise - Running

(no subject)

Aha! Managed to score some Bikilas from TravelCountry.com [links via birthdayShoes.com]. Yay! I think my feet will be happier. With all the extra running lately, I've almost worn completely through the soles of my Sprints.

And I think my feet have been noticing. The balls of my feet have been more tender after runs lately with all the rocks.
So, I'm hoping this alleviates some of the issues I've had making longer distance insofar as my feet getting so sore it's hard to walk on them.

I am, however, sad to think of not running in my bright-red Sprints any more. :( I will, at least, repair the ripped seams and wear them out until they fall apart.

Ran the UW Arboretum yesterday. 8.5 miles in some of the most spectacular weather we've had this summer. Minus the obscene number of Mayflies and mosquitoes I pulled off my head, it was a lovely run. I ran through 3 flocks of turkey, a few Doe + Baby groups and a whole bunch of itty bitty baby bunnies.

94 miles this month. 6 more in the next two days to hit 100 miles this month. And it looks like either I do it tomorrow morning or skip the late work night currently scheduled.
Not sure which is the better option....
