Hello! I finally feel normal again today!!! Thank 8lb 6oz tiny little baby Jesus! I am so grateful just to feel like a human again
This morning I actually went on a run – the first ‘real’ run since the 50k this weekend!
I’m still tight, need a massage – anyone up for it? I’ll trade you some eggs for some quad rubs. Anyone?
Confession: I NEVER wash my running shoes. I don’t have to because I have only run on paved sidewalks in the past.
But my shoes were disgusting after the BTR trail race and I really needed to do something. Plus, they’re not that old so I was kinda bummed that they were so thrashed.
So, I decided to stop being a cochina for once and actually wash my running shoes. When I tweeted a pic of them a few peeps asked how to do it so here is the deal…
How to Wash Running Shoes
1. Get dirty. Preferably at a trail race.
2. Take off your shoes. Remove inserts and set aside.
3. HAND wash shoes with a mild soap. Don’t throw them in the washing machine as this may cause them to get stretched out.
I used dish soap and a rag (you can use a gentle detergent or similar).
5. When completely dry put insoles back in. Lace up and go.

I looked over this morning to find him like this…
Question: Have you ever washed your workout shoes?
This was my first time because I’m a cochina of America.
