Teton Dam Marathon Review

On the 2nd of June, I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive to eastern Idaho for the Teton Dam Marathon. I did the 5K.

Did I mention I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive. Yeah, not the best idea for legs to be in PR shape. My leggies were stiff and at 1100 more feet of elevation then at home, it was a slow trot for sure. No PR attempt this trot, that's for sure.

I woke up at 4am (my normal wake up time is 8am - 10am depending on the day) so that early is  painful. I had everything all packed and ready the evening before- brekky, post-race clothes, snacks, and a full tank of gas for the long drive. All I had to do was make coffee and head out. I didn't even brush my teeth before I left. Coffee first.

The drive was nice and not a lot of traffic for a Saturday morning. I don't know the last time I have been to Rexburg, but it was easy to find the race start. I thought the race started at 8am, but that was the 10K. The 5K started at 8:30am and I got there to get my bib at …

Soul Patches Product Review

This post is sponsored by Soul Patches and no other compensation was given.

I used to wear high heels all the time. Until I started running, I would always be in a pair of heels. Now, they just plain ol' hurt my feet. Some of my pretty shoes are now too narrow as I think my feet have widened and lengthened a bit since running. I think I bought them before I started running. But some of them just have points that hurt to wear or stand in for any length of time.

Thankfully Soul Patches have come to my rescue.
Sole Patches are a thin cushioned patch that sticks onto the ball of your foot. The cushioning is made of Poron by Rogers Corporation, a special material that's shock-absorbing, antimicrobial, anti-odor, and has moisture-repelling properties, making it a perfect solution to avoiding having sore feet at the end of the day in uncomfortable shoes!

I have tried other brands found in the grocery store but I felt that they were too thick and made my shoe feel even smaller without adding the cush I needed. I tried these in a pair I loved that I previously used the store bought gel padding. Comparing the two products, I liked how this was a small pad and didn't take up precious room in the shoe. Plus they are a flesh color so you can stick them to your feet instead of your shoe and it doesn't look super obvious.
