Runnin' in the Rain

I am in Eureka, Ca, and this run was done on the Hammond Trail in Arcata. I'm pretty pleased with my progress over last week, although my enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that I ran one less mile in my warm up. Yeah, as with the fartleks the other day, I'm going to go with the explanation that makes me feel the best and...

I'm faster!

Also want to give a shout out to Mike at the Jogg'n Shop in Arcata. I picked up a new pair of running shoes, and my poor next to littlest toes don't hurt any more! Yay on me. He also gave me a nice discount on the shoes, a pair of shorts, and a short sleeve top. So, if you're in Arcata and need some gear, see Mike!

Saturday, I get to run through the Redwoods! Google "Ave of the Giants" and you can see where I'll be! 8 miles, baby!

I finally found a running store near me. It is so worth it to actually go into the store, let the experts look at your feet, and then pay the high-price tag.

I was glad that I took my old shoes with me so he could see the wear pattern.

He knew the couple of shoes that had a slightly bigger toe box, and I only had to try on three different pairs to find the ones that fit the best.
