Well believe it or not, after my last post it warmed up to a whopping 22 degrees! Weehoo! With such a heat wave (hahaha) and no wind, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get outside and run. I have been quickly reminded of how people go crazy with “cabin fever” up here. Only 4 days of being indoors (and a 1 year old who has boycotted sleeping here at Grandmas house) and I was about to lose my mind.
My first impression of these shoes was that they were slightly clunky and almost TOO supportive around the ankles. This was before I hit the snow/trails. I’m a novice at trail running (read: I’ve never done it) so I didn’t understand that this support was absolutely essential once I hit the
tundra terrain. They kept me from feeling like I was going to roll my ankles with every step. And did I mention already that they kept my feet WARM and DRY?
