Last weekend Team WR braved the wintry weather and traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah for the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show, a twice a year showing of all things “outdoor.” We made our way through aisles of down and flannel to get a look at the running gear we’ll be coveting come fall, including running shoes!
From boot-style shoes to fast trail runners, there are plenty of enticing new shoe options to help you make the most of your run.
Allison played field hockey and golf while growing up, but always ran “just for the fun of it.” She completed and won her age group in her very first race, a 5K, when she was 26 so that she would at least know how to pin on her number before running her first marathon a month later. Those two races turned into dozens, from mile long sprints to ultras, running to triathlon with some ski and snowshoe racing mixed in as well. After earning a Boston qualifier and completing her first IRONMAN 140.6, this mother of two is now focused on seeing how much she can better her 3:48 PB marathon time, running the World Marathon Majors (Boston and Tokyo are in the books!) and tackling a 50-miler.
