Illness and travel for work has put a crimp in training over the last two days, but I did get in a 40 minute bike session this morning. I'll be on the road tomorrow, and that seems to always lead to a halt in training. Nevertheless, GTR 100 is a mere 24 days away. Lisa put up a great post yesterday titled "Why Will the Grand Teton Races be Special This Year" that is a good read. Both of my daughters are looking forward to participating in the kids races.
The move of This Week in Running to iRunFar.com and the interview with Jamie Donaldson has lead to some cool perks. I should soon be receiving a package from Drymax Sport Socks (and a product review post will follow after I get the opportunity to test them out). Jamie ran the entire Badwater Ultramarathon in Drymax socks - no blisters ! Also, Dan Rose ran 192 miles in brutal heat to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Drymax socks - no blisters !
I'm expecting to receive a bunch of Drymax socks to test, including, the Hot Weather Running sock, the Maximum Protection Running sock (designed for triathlons, marathons and ultras), and the Trail Running sock. You can click each of the below images for a larger view.
