This past week, I took the family down to Disney World for spring break (And to get out of town with the Masters Golf tournament here in Augusta GA) and had an awesome time. Did not get any running in, but did walk about a thousand miles. The parks were at full capacity, but we still hit all our favorite rides. Also got some sun time in at Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon and got a head start on my tan (or should I say burn).
Went out yesterday for a 30 mile trail run in the rain, wind, and mud - Had a great time and had to check out my new trail shoes which performed nicely straight out of the box (No blisters, drained well, and light at 11oz). Not sure how these will hold up for 100 miles, but the Montrail Mountain Masochist (MM) worked great for shorter runs (Time will tell). Compared to the Montrail Continental Divide (CD), these shoes are so much lighter, flexible, and breathable. I normally wear a 9.5 in the CD and the MM 9.5 feels like a size 10. These very well could be the improvement in trail shoes I was hoping for. I will use them in my upcoming races to see how they perform. I also tried the Superfeet green inserts and was pleased with the performance.
