A little bit about the training. Last year I had huge back to back hamstring issues, and I did not have enough miles in miles legs for Boston. This year I have been lucky (knock, knock) with my hamstrings but was down three days with a bad stomach virus. I also had an accident loading our wood burning stove, I dropped the steamer and got all the burning hot water on my right foot. Leaving me with second degree burns and blisters. Two weeks of bandaged foot but I hit all of my miles and work outs. Foot looks better now but it was scary nasty looking for a while!

Gear, as Im a Salming Running ambassador, I have been using their clothing and shoes this winter. On the top I have been using the UltraLite Jacket. A really nice light jacket that breaths well and at the same time blocks the winds. I cant say enough of good things about the this jacket! If it gets really cold, I add the Running Vest on top of the jacket. The Vest can also be used for safety as it comes in a bright yellow color with added reflex printings. This solution has kept me happy warm all winter.

On my feet I always put my trust in wool, and for the best fit I use Feetures! Elite wool socks. They alsways keep my feet warm, no matter what!
Hopefully weather gets better and we can get some #nononsense speed in!
