I have been quite busy lately so I am late with Episode 8. It will probably be a day or so before I get it out.
I have been spending time catching up with the family and around the house including a date with the hubby, a day at the beach, and acquiring new furniture (resulting in a reorganization of half the house).
Today visited a new running store in town and as a result of a gait analysis on the treadmill traded in my Brooks Addictions for Asics Gel Kayano 13's. It has less support than the Brooks in a much lighter shoe - but just the right support so I pronate correctly. With the orthotics, I don't need as much support as before. Tomorrow morning I take them for their first run!
I had also been toying with other hydrations options and had given Shirley's Camelbak a try - but didn't like the backpack (a bit warm). I picked up the Camelbak Flashflo, a waist pack that holds 45 oz of fluid. That should get me through most of my long runs.
More tomorrow! Run strong my friends!
