Hearts, Soles, and the Half Marathon Video

I went out a few weeks ago and splurged on a new pair of running shoes at Heart and Sole here in Albuquerque. This is a great store. Very high tech. They got me up on a treadmill with several different pairs of shoes (one pair at a time of course) and took video footage of my feet as I ran. I settled on a pair of Everuns from Saucony that just happened to perfectly match my TeamQuest t-shirt. Now I can rest assured that I am both well-cushioned and color coordinated.

If you go to Heart and Sole, ask for Matt Glasier and tell him Carolee from TeamQuest and the Dyslexia Association sent you his way. I just sent my husband over there this morning.

I can't believe the Rock and Roll Marathon in San Diego is only a few days away. Yesterday I ran 3 laps (10 miles) around the Albuquerque Academy and the week before that I did 13. My incentive for each run is to meet my family at Einstein's bagels afterward.  They usually join me for the last lap too.

The marathon folks sent a really cool video of exactly what the half marathon course will look like. Half Marathon Video. Yikes! That looks like a long road. It's a good thing there will be live music and porta-potties along the way.

This morning I completed the 10K (6.2 miles) at the Run for the Zoo here in Albuquerque, NM! Another TeamQuest training milestone. Now I only have 6.9 miles to go until I'm ready for the half marathon (13.1 miles) on June 5 when I go to the Suja Rock 'n' Roll Marathon.
