Still getting back to normal.... :(

Been some time since I last posted... Shins started causing problems but leveraged that down time to do some other preparations. Getting my new shoes Nike Structure Triax +14 tomorrow. The Fleet Feet guys said this shoe would do me good. This shoe is also listed as Editors Choice in the latest Runners World magazine. So I am pretty excited. Will do a short run on Saturday and see how it goes.

Day before went to Dicks Sporting Goods and did a lot of research on duffel bags, rain coats, and other accessories. Found a great sleeping bag rated to -15F. Came back home and did more research on the sleeping bag and realized that there were many people who have rated that model with a 1* out of 5*s.  :(   So dropped the idea of buying it. Still figuring out a good deal.

My Silio charger is working pretty good but unfortunately there has been no sunlight since the last few days to get it fully charged. Hopefully this weekend.

On the brighter side, today I had lunch with Dwight and his friend Curtis who will be joining us in our attempt to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro. The three of us will be starting training together soon. Curtis has done many marathons before and as you know Dwight has done many triathlons before. So, it is kind of intimidating to be training with them but I will get there soon...

Take care all yall... be safe
