    FWIW, the One and the Torin are on a last that's wider in the forefoot than Altra's other models.

    I've always had to lock-lace my shoes. I don't consider it special or fancy. :) Lots of runners...

    I'm going to whine.

    I've got a sinus headache that sudafed and tylenol and heating pad and neti pot aren't doing a thing for. I've had more sinus headaches in the past year than I think the rest...

    When I run in town, at least once a week I have to scream, and sometimes check up, to avoid running head-on into this kind of people on foot.

    I'll be running at most an 8 m/m (7-1/2 mph) and...

    We got 2-1/2" of rain last night, and luckily none of the high winds. We needed rain badly, but usually when it comes down that fast, it all runs off. Amazingly, the soil was in just the state of...

    I'm just glad I'm not sensitized to the bites yet. The better I can keep them off, the longer I can delay it! As the summer goes on the welts will get bigger and bigger, until by the time the frost...

    I got out of my car about half an hour ago and within seconds I had a deerfly bite on my arm. Running they're not so bad, but there is about a quarter mile near a pond and cattle pasture, where they...

    Way too much riding home drunk when I was in law school. I'm lucky to have survived. Down there I'd worry about heat exhaustion on top of everything else. Probably going to be some wicked hangovers...

    Slow down?

    It sure is a temptation to keep barreling through dappled light. It nearly ended badly for me when a deer crossed near me on a fast, fun descent.

    In a top-loading machine I'd put it in a lingerie bag. That will help keep it from wrapping around the agitator and getting all stretched out.

    Have fun! Glad you found something you like.

    Other than getting the chlorine out - which takes more washing, not less - I just figure that they take the same care as other lycra-type garments, like running or cycling shorts or yoga outfits.

    NY, that stinks. :(

    Maybe a good pair of noise cancelling headphones for while you're awake, and earplugs to sleep? Not ideal for sure, but it might help you get some peace.
