That is a total lie, I would love to eat and run. The truth is, I would love to run. Sometimes, something has to be taken away from you for you to totally appreciate it. That thing, the one that’s been taken away from me, is running. I could run in a gym. I’ve done it before, but it’s really not the same as outdoors. In the Salt Lake Valley we are blessed every Winter with the “INVERSION”, which means that it is freezing and the air is so bad they ask you not to exercise outdoors. Normally I ignore this warning but as I am still getting over the flu, I think it is best to listen to the experts.
And so, instead of running, I am doing the next best thing and reading a book from one of my running heroes, Scott Jurek, and planning outfits for when the snows comes to clean the air out. From the left, Eat and Run, Stella McCartney for Adidas Run Performance Jacket, Stella McCartney for Adidas Stirrup Legging and last but not least, Nike Free Run 3.
The Nike’s are a shoe I have really mixed feelings about, on the one hand, Nike, is always a struggle for me ethically, on the other hand, I like the shoe. I ran my first and only marathon in them, but again on the other hand, the insoles gave me incredible blisters. And so, I think it may be time to move on to another lightweight shoe. Suggestions?
Are there any activities you are missing this Winter?
