New Running Equipment
I went to the Running Room Poor-Man's Outlet on North Queen in Etobicoke in the week, and bought myself two pairs of shoes. I've put about 700 miles on a pair of Asic Gels, and I needed to retire them.
I've also been raiding the Running Room for Shot Bloks. I buy a box of 18 at a time for the fact that I get one free! (Can you tell that I am cheap from the last couple of paragraphs?) I find that this is the only "engineered" nutrition that I can manage while running. The Mexodexotrilmaltilotsugaralcihol in GU is way too sweet, the XOODs and Gator Aids really make me want to puke when I really just need a cool swig of fresh water. I say "engineered" because I have ran with a toasted bagel in my pocket, and it has really hit the spot at mile 5 of a long run. And I have been known to call ahead to order pizza for the half-way rest stop. One thing I don't enjoy is all that water on my fuel belt rocking around. I'll have to look into a camelbak.
The busy-ness I've been experiencing in the last few weeks looks to continue until we can hire a few people, so I need to apologize in advance for my absence from the blogosphere!
Good luck to everyone running this weekend at Seabrook TX, Long Valley NJ, Moab UT, and Rome Italy!!!! And I hope you can all send me your successful mojo as I train to beat my next race.
