My First Half-Marathon and Other Things to Look Forward to

This month I have a couple of good things planned for you awesome readers. I got my Hoka One One Mafate 3 this week so I will be doing an initial review on those.

I will also be doing a final long-term review on my Asics GEL-Exalt that I replaced with my new Hoka's.

I will also be giving my old Asics shoes away to a lucky winner! Just kidding, I'm a running shoe hoarder and my wife will attest to that. I still have a lot of my old running shoes because "I might need them one day". Maybe I can craft together a Christmas tree out of my old stinky shoes.

Also, because I had a lot of fun marking the Xterra Pt. Mugu trail race I volunteered to do it for the Xterra Crystal Cove course Saturday tomorrow which is the day before the race. In other race news, I signed up for my first half-marathon and my first race for 2014. It is the Xterra Boney Mountain trail race on January 12th. It is going to be an adventure trying to train during the holidays and with the cold weather. I can't wait till the winter solstice on the 21st of December, it is hard to get anything done with it being dark most of the day.

So yea, I have a lot of stuff coming up and I will try to keep everyone updated on my training and progress.

(Edit: just found out this weekends race at Crystal Cove was postponed due to rain)

Does anyone else hoard shoes that are never going to be worn again?
