Run this winter

A few days ago, I posted about looking for Mukluks for running. Well I came across Manitobah Mukluks and I found exactly what I am looking for. I am to provide a bit of details and reports on running for them, so I will be doing that as I wear them this winter.

Hunter Mukluk These are the boots. I ordered the tall one’s. They should be in by November.

I am SO looking forward to trying these out. The coolest part is that they have a Vibram sole, which is the same sole as the Five Finger shoes! Now I can pretty much barefoot it in winter, without the frostbite! Nice!!!

I have also accepted Barefoot Neil’s challenge of a 100 miles of running before Oct 10th in his first annual 2010 10-10 Virtual Race. Let’s see how it goes.

I have used the GOAL function on Garmin Connect so I can track on my watch just how far I’ve gone. It’s measuring distances for ALL activities, so I will have to be sure to only use my watch when I’m running.

Wish me luck!
