I’d like to discuss something that makes a lot of people uncomfortable: toe socks. No other item in the shop is as polarizing and gets more laughs from non-runners. Well, excluding Hokas. Toe socks look absolutely ridiculous and no one has ever looked hip in them. Today, I’d like to have an open and honest dialogue about the goofy toe socks from Injinji.
Run Moore is excited to announce an Intro to Trail Running Class being offered through Carroll Community College. It’s a fun opportunity to explore the network of trails in the area and learn about how to become a better trail runner. Professor Dulaney and I are thrilled to be teaching this class and registration is now open and available to all adults in the area.
Despite my best efforts, I have been in a running funk since my fall marathon. I had a nice stretch where I was actually running faster than I was leading up to my race and even though my miles were lower than usual; I was running faster and feeling great. Everything was pointing toward a nice bounce-back race this spring to get my running spirits back. However, no matter how fast I ran my heart was not in it.

After five years of injuries, setbacks and life interruptions, I was finally able to get to the starting line of a marathon. I had big plans and had some goals that I felt were quite attainable. Unfortunately, the race didn’t go as planned and I ended up struggling through the last 10k and missed even my “safe” goal time. There are a few things I could have done differently and a few things I would adjust for next one. While it’s easier to point to a few things that didn’t break my way during the race I know the bottom line was, I just didn’t get it done.
October Indoor Track Update!
I wanted to put a quick post about the indoor track project. This is moving so fast that I feel like any information I share will be outdated by the time you read this. In the past week, a few things have transpired, and I wanted to make everyone aware of where we are as of now.
Cross-country was my introduction into running. I joined my high school team as a freshman and have never looked back. Usually, around this time of the year, I am thinking of my days of struggling through the dip and Hereford or the seven years of competing at Van Cortland Park. However, while the leaves are screaming for fall running, my head is wrapped up in the confines of the indoor track.
