Podcast - Mile 61 - New Shoes

My intent was to drop this episode about two weeks ago. Needless to say, it didn't happen. Instead I frolicked and meandered along until I got tired of seeing it on my To Do List and finally pushed it out there. I know, my motivation levels are just so low it's hard to measure them.

Anyway, my new shoes. Altra Zero Drop "The Ones." You'll hear me encounter a fawn early on in my run and that's how I came up with the name for my new shoes. Yes, I name my shoes. Yes, I know that's crazy. So sue me.

From there I go on to discuss shoes. Something I don't think I've ever done at length before, at least not on tape. So as I throw around technical terms like heel-toe drop and stack height, try not to fall asleep. And no, I'm not sponsored by Altra. But I'd sure love it if I was. Instead I need to buy my shoes from a friend (he's pretty much my shoe pimp).

You can wiggle your toes in this episode on Podbean or lace it up directly here.

Congrats on the new shoes. I like that you name them. I'm a nick-namer, so I can relate (I give everyone and most trails a nickname). Also, I haven't mentioned that your new banner picture is quite lovely! And one more thing, your motivation levels cannot possibly be lower than mine. It's the total PITS.

@Lauren - We could have a pity party and see who is worse off with motivation but I don't think that will help either of us. And if it helps you any, you motivate me to get out there and run. I'm continually amazed at how much elevation and how many miles you crank out every week.
