It’s finally starting to look like fall in Ohio 🍂❤️ October means the Marine Corps Marathon is coming up! 19 days! I will be wearing my #altraescalantes
and can’t wait to represent #wearblueruntoremember
with my Gold Star family.
Running shoe upgrade!!!! After training for and running my first 50k, it was time to get a new pair of shoes! Stopped at @dickpondrunning
yesterday and BOTH of us ended up leaving with a new pair of @altrarunning
Torrential ⛈️ today and it felt more like swimming. Loving my new #altraescalantes
which performed beautifully thru the massive puddles. (PS... super happy the lightning moved over us quickly, was getting nervous out there!) After all of the heat we've been having, this morning was a refreshing change of pace and glad we made it out to brave the elements 💪#mrtt #njrunners
Checked out Rocky Creek Trail to add some vert and see where the climb heads up towards...Scrambled some big rocks(fun), but with the sprinkles in the air and the forecast for hit and miss rain didn’t want to push too far, so saved the rest of that after the first couple of pitches for another time...Went down the Rocky Creek Trail itself but soon grew tired of flicking ticks and crossing the creek so decided to head back to run Indians - Arroyo. Did this run without water or a bottle so I could stuff an extra jacket and 2 pairs of gloves in my pack, and because I like to challenge my body to make due sometimes...The day actually felt pretty warm to start but the temps soon plummeted as a cold front passed through. I got pretty thirsty but found a couple of springs and drank sweet, cold nectar from those. Great day with some snow in the higher peaks, a few showers, only one was heavy, it did get pretty cold, but the sights were enough to counterbalance that sufficiently :) #ventanawilderness #bigsur #springwatersofresh #arroyoseco #5kvertsday #embracethespace #altraescalantes #zerolimits #orangemudpfv #orangemud #orangemuddirtunit #insidetrailracing #mdrive @altrarunning @orangemud @insidetrail @mdrive
First run off the bike of 2018 at a moderate zone 3 effort in my Escalantes! Now it feels like I'm in triathlon training mode 😊
Winter Tip: Wool socks help keep your feet & legs warm through the fall and the snow. I got these from Costco and they are fantastic!
These are currently my favorite shoes! The Escalantes by @altrarunning.
They are the perfect combination of zero drop, toe box, not too high of a stack height, but still nice a coushiony.
What are you favorite running shoes? Tell me in the comments below!
Long ride Saturday and a cruiser ride Sunday pacing a long run. Saved a baby turtle on the way out and saw momma turtle poking her head out on the way back. 🐢 🚴 🚲🏃🏽
I've had the opportunity to run in my new #altraescalantes
a few times now and I LOVE them! They are some of the most comfortable running shoes I've ever had.
