“action” from kaneda99‘s photostream every so often, flickr spits out a beauty. I love this pic, it illustrates pretty much everything I love about running in the fall/winter: long shadows, overcast, and a comfortable (to me) temperature. Amazing capture.

it’s working

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I had purchased a second pair of orthotics and some new shoes to go with them. I’m happy to report that things are going pretty damn well. My first pair of Nimbus VIII’s had to be returned after a couple weeks because of a bad seam in the […]
