I admit that when I first received the Brooks Caldera 6, I didn't think it would be the trail running shoe for me, but after putting close to 50 miles in the shoes I can definitely say that my mind has been changed!
I can't imagine a better FIRST RACE than the NEW YORK CITY MARATHON! As someone who primarily runs on trails, I didn't know what to expect from a road marathon, but the people of New York City came out in force to pump up everyone running the race!
There's nothing I love more than getting out for a full day of trail running in the mountains, so I thought I'd take some time to talk about how I choose a trail running route and plan for a full day on the trail.
