When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire

The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Aspire. UltrAspire.

 UltrAspire and Krissy Moehl. The man behind Ultimate Directions and Nathan Sports.

Personally, I can't wait to get my hands on this puppy.

Sadly, for the next some time I'll be back to crosstraining as I managed to extend my long-term-lasting PF into a tear at the inside of the heel of my left foot. During yesterday's morning's hill repeats. On the first one. What means, of course, I did all 10 of them, and then hobbled a mile home. Like God tells me to focus on one thing at a time:) Freshly diagnosed by a doctor this morning. With suggestion to take 3 months off and make a very slow come back in building miles. And to wear clunky sturdy shoes for now (at least not a boot!). Ha, silly! And he was actually nice, understanding and knowledgeable. So much for a 60k where I planned to kick ass and take a trophy home:)...But I got my newly replaced Hoka, so who knows, even though I hated them for trails, they could help me on a road, and in this high-rigid ride I might be able to go!

Never give up, find what inspires you - and Aspire.

Things will happen in your life that you can't stop, but that's no reason to shut out the world. There's a purpose for the good and for the bad. Walter Sparrow

Man, oh, man! I remember when I met Bryce a few years ago out at Targhee and talked with him about this philosophy on product design/quality. When I found out he journeyed out on his own, again, after being with Nathan, I've been eagerly awaiting these products to launch. These will be the defacto standard in our running circles, for certain!!!

That SPRY vest looks awesome!!!! I have yet to find a vest I can run with so I'm hoping that's the one!

So bummed to hear about the heel. Hopefully I'll still see you and Larry at the Shoe!

Gah! I think Hokas are perfect for running injured. That's my theory. The bad thing is now I'm fat and addicted to the cushion and my old favorites make me tired. Guess I need to start being more like you and get lighter on my feet :-) Danni

I love the Hokas! I have the road version and I wear them on non technical trail. I bet they will help you in your recovery. So SORRY to hear about your PF/heel tear. Of course you did all 10 hill repeats.....you're Olga!
Here's to a speedy recovery. You've motivated me to eat better by the way....

Wishing a speedy recovery to the speediest recoverer out there. :-) I can't justify buying more gear but that stuff looks nice.
