    Ran 14.25 miles with a group of guys. Went over the High-Level Bridge 3 times. What a hill workout. Did the whole thing in 2hrs and 5 minutes. I was running slow for most of it but had a 5 mile part where I was able to run faster.

    What kind of running shoes do you wear? When I get up to 10-13 miles what really stops me from continuing more than anything else is that the balls of my feet and toes start hurting, like there's been too much pounding and they just need a rest. If I wear too thick a sock, that seems to make it worse because it causes jamming. Any suggestions?

    I have been increasing my cadence so that I can reduce the amount of time I spend in the air.

    I wouldn't know the first thing to tell you about shoes. I am using a Gel Kahanna from Asics, which is a trail shoe. I really need to look into some other types of shoes since I have changed up my running style.

    I have problems with my legs falling asleep when my calves get too tight, so I am wearing sleeves on my calves to help with the blood flow.

    No running today, at least not yet.

    Just back from a 15 mile hike in Rocky Mountain National Parkā€”Bear and Bierstadt Lakes, and then up Hallett Peak, starting at 6:00 and finishing at 2:00pm. I'm beat!

    I may still head out for a trot around Denver, however. Headed back to the east coast tomorrow and want to take in one more jog around this great town.
