The Best Running Socks

I swear by my Injinji Toesocks
Yes they look silly but they are the best running sock! 
Ever since wearing these I have not suffered blistering. 
I remember thinking that they would be uncomfortable too; and I transitioned into my toesocks just fine. 


If you haven't tried them buy at least a pair. I'm telling you - you will love these socks! 
I have three pairs and have worn them while training and on race day since 2009 and they are still in good shape. 
If you have a pair or are going to buy a pair let me know what you think!

Today I had a run in my brand new shoes! No aches. No pains. Just a good training run.

So how did I justify buying new shoes guilt free? I asked. I called and asked Second Sole if they have any sales or promotions going on for the shoes of my choice. I explained I was on a budget and couldn't afford the $110 retail price. Mike at the store asked if I would be okay with last year's version of Ravenna's and explained to him that I've been still running in Ravenna 2.0s. He said the closeout shoe was 3.0 since Brooks already introduced their 4.0 version. I told him absolutely! Just by asking I was able to get new running shoes at closeout price (for $40 less)! I'm so excited!

And it just proves that if you talk and ask nicely good things can and will happen!

So excited to start increasing my milage the next few weeks in my new shoes!

Happy Training!
