Im really struggling with shoes right now. I have several pairs that are great for shorter runs but I just cant seem to find a shoe that will work for 30+miles. My toes just get so beat up but if I go with the next 1/2 size up then I have issues with sliding around in the shoe. I have even tried different lacing technique and that helped some but I still dont think it is the solution. I did confirm that Stone Mills' trails are fairly non technical and that many just wear road shoes. That would be great except that I dont run roads enough to even have a road shoe! Sigh. I do think I have them narrowed down to two atleast. We will see with the upcoming 50k at Blues Cruise.
EATS: For breakfast I decided to switch it up and make some Oatmeal Pancakes! I forgot the vanilla and cinnamon that I usually add but they tasted great anyhow.
Another night instead of using the Kale Butter as a dip I put it on some Sweet Potatoes again. The combo is so awesome. Love it. Added a salad for a little more volume and an Orange for dessert.

I hope everyone is having a good week!
Are you ready for fall?!
