TARC feels like so long ago at this point, that I almost forgot it ever even happened.....Almost.  It's also become one of those things, I don't even really feel like talking about it.  I think mainly because I don't know what to say.  I don't really know what went wrong.  Even though I've never DNF'd before, there's definitely races I felt that I've tanked but I always know right away the reason it didn't go well. 
Emir said taking this pic was bad luck as I took a similar one on the way to Eastern States....

OrangeMud Transition Wrap

Disclaimer: I received Orange Mud Transition and Seat Wrap as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

I was actually pretty excited to test out the transition and seat wrap as it was something Emir and I had looked at possibly getting for our trail escapades. It's a towel that can be used for changing and a seat cover for your car.  The one edge of the towel is actually a built in belt clip so that you can secure the towel around you and it won't fall down while you change out of your gross stuff.  The belt is secure and it does stay in place, my only issue is that the towel is not really big enough for us ladies.  For guys it's perfect size but I need a bit more length to keep all the lady parts covered.

Zero Limits -- Growing my Altra collection

I was given the Altra Impulse to test by Altra and I am also an Altra ambassador.  All opinions are my own.  

At the Runner's World Influencer event, we were each given a pair of Altras to test out.  Obviously running in Altras is nothing new to me (it's all I run in these days) however the model I was given, the Impulse, is new to me.  I've run in a bunch of different Altra models but never the Impulse.  While some people like to stick to one thing that works for them, I was excited to try something different.  Honestly, I have yet to find an Altra that I didn't like running in.  I do have my go to racing shoes but I love training in all the different ones I have and there's been several times that I've tried a different model and that ended up being my go to race shoe, so I was looking forward to seeing what the Impulse would do for me.

First run in my Paradigms was the Philly Rock N Roll Half
