Wait, what? Huh? Yup. That’s what I was thinking too. In the past couple of years, it seems that every shoe company – whether running shoes, cross trainers or even fashion shoes – are going barefoot. I was recently offered a chance to try Juil Shoes, which are flats and sandals that are designed to keep […]
In keeping with my goal to be better about planning ahead, I packed up a lunch and my workout clothes yesterday so that I could spend all day working, with a TRX break with Rocky in the middle. I strolled into the studio (my beloved Flying Yoga), only to realize that, while my hands were […]
These are my favorite shoes of all time. They make me about 6’4″. In other words, I can see over the crowd and reach anything. Anything at all.

As if running weren’t out of character enough for me, I did something even more out of character this week: I chose the hilly route. The trail I run on is more or less flat with a few rolling hills, but the trails it intersects with promise steeper climbs. This week, I went for one […]
