I will miss hostel living. This place is full of great people who are happy to sit and talk about running for hours. It’s a runner’s crack house. Last night I came back around nine and folks were sitting around on the comfy couches in the living room showing each other different nifty running websites. I passed a fun half an hour before heading down to the pink bunk room. Check this out. http://www.thefruitarian.com/
Nice Young Guy went to town to get a pair of gaiters for the race and was sold a pair of hiking gaiters — complete with shoelaces underneath to secure them. I’m going to doctor them this morning and sew on some velcro and hooks, so they’ll be useful for the race — and not a tripping hazard. And, it’s a good thing that I’m so well-rested these days, or I’d go find this gaiter huckster and whack him (or her) with these silly hiking gaiters.
