A little video to get you working out!I am motivated today to get out and run by being on Orcas Island on my own little solo retreat. Orcas Island is a wonderful place to run. I like to stay at Doe Bay Resort because it is funky, cool and has hot tubs. Nothing like getting out on the mountain for a snowy and hilly run then returning to their hot tubs and sauna!
|On my way up Powerline trail. I decided it wa time to tackle the rest of the Orcas Island 50k course, since I DNF'd on race day due to a sprained ankle.|
|A lot of snow today! More and lower elevation than I have seen it before.|
|So I was having this nagging pain in the back of my knee (soft tissue related) every time I ran on the road. It's been going on for over a year. Since I mostly run on the trails, it hasn't been a big deal, more of a annoyance. Well, I picked up the new New Balance MT 110's at Fairhaven Runners and Walkers a week ago and guess what? No pain whatsoever running on the road. Amazing what happens when you find the right shoes for your body.|
