I get blisters.  

Anyone who knows me, has probably heard me talk about my right foot blisters.  Seriously, every time I run more than three miles, I get a blister over the old blister.  If I run five miles, I will get a really good blister, usually filled with blood.  If I run a half marathon, I will get two rather large blisters.  By mid-August, my right pointer toenail will be dead.  I have tried different brands and sizes of shoes.  In fact, prior to testing the UA HOVR Sonic shoe, I was wearing men's shoes because of the larger toe box.  I have coated my feet in different body glides.  I have even used corn starch!

Review: Shady Rays

It is summer and the sun has finally come out! When I had the opportunity to test Shady Rays sunglasses, I immediately took it as I am a big fan of UV protection.

The glasses are fashionable and offer a snug fit, perfect for use while running. I chose the Signature Series Emerald Ice Polarized as the frames are clear and the polarized lenses are green and blue.
