Flanagan's Run; Look What Came In the Mail, ISM Adamo Typhoon Saddle Product Review


Flanagan's Run, written by Tom McNab (1982, NY: William Morrow and Company, Inc) is an outstanding running read. Based on the real-life "Bunion Derby," this tome weaves in a variety of stories and history, all told around Flanagan's Run, a cross-country race from Los Angeles to New York. Really interestingly written, it reveals a time period of U.S. history as seen through the eyes of a foreign writer (McNab is a Scot). Well-worth picking up, this book will engross you for the good part of a week, or longer.

Look what came in the mail!

Sticker from Lindsay,


a cling from Aimee,


and shoes from Somnio.


Somnio Running describes the Nadas thus: "A supplemental training shoe that is meant for strengthening, tuning and stretching. The Nada is designed for a runner who wants to incorporate barefoot methodology into their routine." Cannot wait to try these out. They really remind me of my volleyball days, wearing the old Onitsuke Tigers, though these have less sole and no toe bumpers.

And, because whatever Patrick does, I do, here's the obligatory legs photo (original included for comparison purposes):

  6. Nice legs. Nice mail! I got the sticker from Aimee and Lindsay but no awesome shoes! I'm sad that my Saucony Kinvara shoes seem to be what might be causing me trouble. I liked them so much at first. Did you buy those shoes or were they just sent to you to try and then review? :)

  11. That book sounds really interesting. The shoes look very cool. I really like those. Didn't realize you'd played volleyball. I've been mired in it since I met my first husband, and now I love it, too.
