Three Things Thursday

Skora Running

Do you know about Skora Running? They believe that running shoes should be built to encourage running performance that is as biomechanically correct as possible, with minimal interference. Their footwear lets people run naturally -- Run Real is their philosophy. Looking forward to trying out these funky but chic running shoes!

TNF Endurance Challenge Madison

Just over a week until we run in The North Face Endurance Challenge! Great news this week in that we finally found an RV to rent for a reasonable amount. I procrastinated and almost paid the price -- turns out that the GEICO 400 is being raced the same weekend at Chicagoland Speedway and, since NASCAR fans are willing to pay exorbitant amounts to party in the infield, there were few RVs available around us and those that were had huge price tags. Whew!

Far too rarely, my mountain bike sits forlornly in the basement--this weekend, for more trail time, I'm going to make the effort to use my 29er rather than my road bike. Who knows, maybe next year I'll race the WORS (Wisconsin Off Road Series)!

  1. Those shoes certainly look funky. I'm curious about your running experience in them. RV's are great and you are going to have a blast I think! I wonder if I will get on a bike again soon. I somehow doubt that.

    1. I think, Johann, with all the running you do, cycling would be a great way to crosstrain and strengthen some of the other muscles you don't utilize as much.

  2. I have been dying to try the Skoras, so I'll be anxious to hear your thoughts.

    One week! Crazy--how are you feeling?

    1. I think that, as with all events, there is a certain amount of excitement and trepidation. :) Not sure I did enough training, but am looking forward to the taper week next week since my legs are TIRED! Excited mostly for a whole weekend trying out camping in an RV and spending the time as a family. The races are just icing on the cake.

  3. I'm excited to hear about your race next weekend...and jealous of your 29er. If it gets lonely, you can send it a few hours south to me...I'll take good care of it. :) Actually, my poor bikes are pretty lonely right now themselves.

  4. Cool seeing you have a pair of Skoras! I am interested in our thoughts as well! Keep us updated :)
