Running the Skiddaw Fell Race

Image
The Skiddaw Fell Race in Keswick, England was challenging. It was scary. It made me nervous. It was unlike any event I've ever done. And I wouldn't have wanted it any other way!


I've ran races that were tough physically. Races with stunning scenery. Those that have tested my mental toughness. Small races. Races with local history. The Skiddaw Fell Race was all the above. And once I was up in those mountains with the city down below and the Lake District views all around, I was loving every aching moment.

My Epic Fell Running Adventure with inov-8 (Part one)

One week later I'm still in a daze from my amazing adventure with #TeamGetAGrip and inov-8. My feet are itching to be back in the beautiful Lake District, climbing more mountains with the hypnotizing views all around. We had a full running itinerary each day, and there are so many fantastic stories to share. So I'll be breaking up the trip into different posts to save you from reading an entire novel.

When we run, we look for high-quality and function. But what about when we're not running? We look for style, comfort, quality and all around fun! And it's great when we can rely on one company to have all the above... no matter what the occasion.

I had an amazing race-cation traveling to Seattle then Port Angeles for the North Olympic Discovery Half Marathon. While I may not have had my best race, Jason sure did! But I'd still recommend this event! First, let me start with our running tour of Seattle.
