Gore-tex Sneaks!

Monday I had a really nice run in the park. My first trail run where the trails were completely snow covered. I wore the ice runners again, they helped with traction, but the really cool thing was wearing Gore-tex shoes. After hearing numerous reviews on Gore-tex shoes being rain buckets I was skeptical to buy a pair. My friend Lauren did however purchase a pair that turned out to be too small, so I inherited them. Now that I have run through slushy snow and snow melt and maintained dry feet I am sold. Thanks Lauren for passing on your sneaks!

Ice Runner

That's right I ran for the first time in my ice runners today, and it was
so fun! i would highly recommend this product, I think they actually go by the name stabilicers. I ran for about an
hour on some packed ice and some slushy ice. I had no problems with
slippage and the grippers did not fall off! The path I ran on this morning was pretty flat, if the ice is still hard
tomorrow I will try the ice runners on some hills in the park.
