I still get in an occasional road run but am in one of those seasons where the road has grown more monotonous than joyful so we're taking a break from each other for a while. I'm still pushing Crossfit and really enjoying programming my own workouts. My running is being done on mountain bike trails
Getting back to trails has been so good for me! It's my meditation in motion. It kills the 'runner's trance I find myself in 5 minutes on the road. Forces me to pay attention, look around, to forget perfect pacing, ignore breath cadence, and screw exact stride length - it gets me back to Just... Running (and the Joy of it all)
I'm planning on running the Virginia Creeper in September and The Spartan Beast 15 mile obstacle course in November
In the next week or so I'll have a few new reviews coming up plus I'm Very excited about finishing up my 2 years in the making Superlatives!
I'll be writing up my picks of the best if the best, after 2 years of use: best road shoe, trail shoe, compression gear, clothing, and more!
