"Impossibilities are merely things which we have not yet learned."

Andy and I had an awesome run at Ridgecrest 50k Sunday, finished in 5:57. It was my 4th fastest 50k time ;-) We had a blast!!! Andy is seeing a Doctor for a heart issue he is having but it's not effecting his running.
The weather was perfect the rain held off and it was even a little warm at times.
I wore a brand new pair of shoes out of the box the Hoka one one. I knew it might not be a smart move but I did it anyways. And let me tell you I love the Hokas they are amazing so comfy and light. My legs and feet felt so good after I didn't feel like I ran at all. I give the Hokas 5 stars out of 5. They are my new favorite shoe!!!
Andy and I played a fun game during the run. I would sing and he would have to name the tune of the song I was listing to on my ipod. Time flew by that's for sure. Looking forward to HURT 100 we will have hours to play that game ;-)
These pics. were from yesterdays run up Mission peak along the Ohlone. I was able to run fast on the down hills with my Hokas and not be afraid. They are super stable and you feel nothing. It all makes sense the concept of the shoe. Would you ride a road big on trails?? No you need fat tires not skinny for the trails. Why not wear light cushion shoes with a wide bottom that creates a stable platform.
These shoes are really awesome.
