    Pretty good. 4 minutes under my goal. I'm still coming back from a surgery so I'm quite a ways from PR yet. But the weather was good other than a little windy.

    How everyone do today? I went 1:58 which I was happy with as coming back from injury.

    Shout out to my 65 year old aunt that ran it in 2:00 and is her first half ever.

    Had a plan to go through 13.1 in 1:28 and see what i could do. I did not hit that as i came through half in 1:25:30 was feeling great but knew i wasn’t going to sustain. Hit a wall 18-21 but powered through and finished in 2:53:47. Pretty happy with it!

    Hey Runners...

    I've been running between 10-20 miles a week for about a year and a half now. About 6 months ago, I went to Fleet feet in Des Moines to get some new running shoes. They have a "Fit ID" that does a 3D scan of your feet so they can determine which shoes and insoles are best for you. I'd never worn insoles before, but I bought the pair they recommended for my pronated stance.

    How long does it take to get used to a new pair of insoles?

    Ever since I started wearing the new shoes with insoles in them, my feet are the first thing to get tired during my run. Sometimes they are a little achey at night after long runs. I know that it is probably good for my knees because I do have a very pronated stance, but I would've thought I'd be used to them by now.

    Should I just ditch them?

    Go back and tell them your issues. I've never used insoles and I'm very pronated too. I wear 2-3 different shoes while training with each being a little different 'type' of shoe. I have a high cushion, stability shoe I wear most but also have a couple low cushion, neutral shoes that I wear to 'strengthen' my feet and lower legs.

    How many miles do you guys typically put on your shoes? Mine have 300+ on them now, wondering if it’s about time.

    Between 300-400 my left knee used to buzz when it was time for new shoes. Handy but right foot is too damaged by arthritis to run anymore MISS IT!
