Bestest items of the week

A 105-year-old man set a 100-meter dash record. And he’s not the first older man who’s impressed me this week.

I’m not a huge fan of yoga because it’s slooooow. But it was part of my recovery and later cross training as I prepped for my first marathon. And I’m not the only one.

If you haven’t already tried it, may I recommend Rebecca Pacheco? She’s got a bunch of videos at Runner’s World magazine. My favorites are only 30 minutes long, so I can squeeze them into even the busiest of days.

From 5XL to 5K

As I said before, I’m a sucker for stories about people who’ve changed their lives through running.

I especially love this woman’s story because she changed her whole lifestyle and started from scratch. She is amazing.

I thought it was just me

My family teases me a lot about my, well, odor after I come home from a run.

I leave this video as proof that I at least don’t have the world’s stinkiest feet.

Did you find any cool items this week?

My name is Gisgie. It's pronounced geese (like the birds) and gee (like the letter). Now that we've met, I'm glad you're here. I'm an injury-prone runner who manages to find reasons to keep coming back to the road despite ongoing challenges. Most recently, I've struggled with piriformis syndrome. I'm currently winning. Most days.
