It feels like I’ve had the Brooks Glycerin in my rotation forever. The Brooks Glycerin 19 is a high cushioned neutral shoe. Even with the updates, it rarely changes much. You know, from year to year, it’s going to be about the same.
This year, the Brooks Glycerin 19 is updated with a softer ride and a new outsole configuration. It feels “less clunky” but still high cushioned. Note: Clunky does not mean cushioned, and cushioned does not clunky.
Boathouse Gear has quickly become some of my favorite running gear in 2021. I recently discovered them right around the holidays when they made fun holiday prints. If there is anything I love, it’s themed clothing.
When I discovered the Truckee Running Festival Waddle Ranch Trail Half Marathon, I decided it would be a fun adventure. The thing about trails is no one cares about your time. I could run a 1:40 or a 2:40, and no one would know the terrain and course. My only goal for the Truckee Running Festival Waddle Ranch Trail Half Marathon was to finish and not hurt myself. I didn’t taper or really put a lot of stock in the race. That’s been my mindset for any trail race. Do it. Don’t hurt myself. Have fun.
In 2013, I wrote a blog titled Chapter 23.5: Texas. It involved my short time living in Del Rio, TX. It was the first time I ever lived with Tim, and shortly after I officially moved down there, he found out he was going to fly the KC-10 in New Jersey. So we moved, and I wrote a short blog post about my time in Del Rio.
While living in Napa, I drew parallels to that post. I was just 23 at the time, (23.5 I guess). Now I am 30, and we spent less than a year in Napa. My time in Napa was great. Excellent. I enjoyed most of it.
September was hard with wildfires, but for the most part, I really enjoyed the 9 months I got in Napa. I wish I had more time.
Recently I tried Sunburnt. As a runner and someone who enjoys getting outdoors, protecting your skin in the sun is important. I try my best to stay protected before, during, and after outdoor activities. Skin damage and cancer runs in my family so staying on top of skin health is important and essential to me.
