If you are here, that is because you probably found my website through one of my social media links. That should be an indicator that I like to be connected to the world.
I also like to social aspect of sport. I also have a high opinion of my own opinion and chose this venue to share it.
…but onto shoe pods.
While running has the tendency (or propensity?) to be a solo-sport; there is a community aspect to it, much like any other sport. One of the things which made me jump on the opportunity with Zwift was the idea that i could be connected to other runners when I am doing my own thing.
Another part of training, especially in Pennsylvania, ESPECIALLY in the winter is logging miles on the tread-mill. Now, I’m not a treadmill guy. I love the outdoors and would rather run in all sorts of weather than on a treadmill. That’s not to say there isn’t GOOD training which happens on a treadmill…I just don’t benefit from it. Partially because its not easy to chat with the person next to you on a treadmill, but also because it feels confined and kind of…. i dunno like I’m a lab rat.
