They weren't REALLY pain free, but they were only the "regular" pains of a long run. There will be more to follow on that, but for now it's product review time!

Post Achilles Surgery Wk 18 – Mr. Blue Sky, Please Tell us Why you had to Hide Away for so Long?

Happy Friday, friends! It's a long title, but very fitting for the weather these days. I spent yesterday freezing my tail off up at Luray Caverns for my daughter's field trip (it WAS awesome though) and then I froze some more at my son's baseball game (also awesome).     The Lynchburg area was hit …
