A bucket list run for sure: running the National Mall! I’ve wanted to do this for years and my wish finally came true.
First, I want to give credit where credit is due–while I can still give it–and say FINALLY. Altra has given us this gorgeous women’s shoe that is mostly black and doesn’t have a terrible pastel colorway. So yeah, I love the way these look. (Note the slightly asymmetric lacing.) Read More
In an expensive coincidence, five–FIVE–pairs of my regular shoes are crossing the 300-mile mark and quickly headed for 350. In one pair, I’ve completely worn away the heel padding and now there’s something that scrapes the back of my foot. Two others are dead, but I’m forcing them to keep going a little while longer while I contemplate replacements. And the “newest” two pair are showing their wear in ways that are annoying, but can maybe keep going for another couple of months. Stay tuned for some hellos and goodbyes as I update my rotation. <fingers crossed>
