Awesome Run!!!

While I really do enjoy running, it's rare for me to feel great after each run.  Today, I got back from a nice 5 miler and I felt awesome.  I was pumped up and ready to run another 5 miles(but of course I didn't - don't want to get hurt).  I wish I could have that feeling after every run.  They say a runner high but I think that's mostly when you are actually running, not afterwards.  Anyway, more of these types of runs would be great.  I thought I was going to hate running in the Winter too but I guess it doesn't matter what it's like out, you still get great runs every once in awhile.  The run was not particularly faster or on a different path from what I normally take.  I guess my body just responded to it well today.







Stupid running question of the day -

Do you double knot your shoes or not?

I do although I did not used to when I first started running.  I don't do it to keep them tied because I have never had them loosen up on a run.  I just do it because I don't use all the lace holes in the shoes and it helps so they are not flapping around so much.  By the way, does anyone use those quick tie shoe laces.  I believe many triathletes use them but was not sure if any runners used them.


Have a great day and.......Keep Running!

  1. I don't double tie my laces but the ends of the laces get tucked under the previous lacing to stay out of the way. Kinda hard to explain! Great job on the 5 miler, that is a fast time, it's always nice when you get back feeling really energized!

  2. I don't double tie but mine arent't that long. I actually lace them in a way that uses more of the lace, which snugs the heel up. I used to have problems with shoes rubbing my heels, but no more.

  3. Nice run!!

    I double tie my laces. When I first started running my dad suggested that I double tie them. So I have ever since.

  6. I do double knot my shoes but only because the laces are really long! I want to get some quick laces but I haven't yet. Maybe Santa will bring me some! :)

  12. I double knot for races only. I have had to stop in a race and retie - talk about a time waster.

  14. Welcome to the running blogworld. And how cool of a masthead to feature you with Meb!

    I wear New Balance shoes that have a unique shoe lace that doesn't require double-knotting, but if I am wearing other running shoes, I usually do to be on the safe side.

  17. I always double knot. Mostly because I always have. Right now my laces are kind of short and it's a pain to do it, but I still do it anyway. I'm sure they'd be just fine single knotted but I guess I'm just neurotic that way.

  18. The high afterwards is my favorite part of the run! I never finish a run and think "wow, I wish I hadn't done that."

    Stay safe with all your snow this weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog!
