I must confess to a little obsession with animal print. What better to bring out the animal racing instinct than a pair of leopard print compression socks?
These socks won't be ignored.
Sporting my new, favorite, long-sleeve running top here- purchased for $8.96! And if you can figure out where I got a deal at that price point, don't worry. Your secret is safe with me ;)
Altra's Lone Peak 1.5 are my current trail faves. Fully cushioned, flexible, great traction.
Zero drop takes a little getting used to if you have never worn it before, but these awesome trail shoes are designed to promote healthier running with a stable, cushioned (but not wedge-like) platform, a roomy toe-box for maximum toe-spread and natural push-off. (They do make some great road shoes as well!)
How restricted is your foot for push-off in a tapered and upturned toebox found in most running shoes?
What happens to your foot muscles when they are held in an unnatural position, day in and day out?
Why do doctors recommend children wear natural, foot-shaped shoes? Shouldn't adults wear them too?

Specifically in Dark Chocolate Cherry Mocha Protein Bars
I could live off of these.
Sadly I do not run nearly enough to eat as many as I would like. Very chocolatey, slight hint of coffee, a tiny bit of cherries here and there. Black Forest yumminess for your run.
