The Mind runs the body


"Now if you are going to win any battle, you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." –George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian

I ordered a pair of La Sportiva Fireblade trail shoes the other day. I can't wait to try them out. I would love to wear them next Saturday on our "epic run". Pt. Reyes to the Golden Gate. It will be a blast, I know. I am really looking forward to it. I wanted to give an update on my Drymax socks. I ran on the Western States 100 trail for 31 miles last week, and my feet and toes were unscathed. No hot spots, no blisters, nada. I hope you will give them a try. Gone are the days where my toes would be sore after a long run. Drymax works. Try them, you will not be disappointed.

I love Drymax too. I don't understand how they could keep my feet blister free even when soaking wet from hours of running in the rain! It's a mystery.

Your epic run sounds intriguing. Who's invited? Are you recommending it only for very experienced (and speedy) folks?
