Fun run on a Saturday out on the trails in a little 97 degree mid day heat! Thank you to Joe Nakamura and Run Republic for the best pair of trail shoes I’ve ever run in - Hoka Evo Mafate! Lots of grip and super comfy. I also grabbed a pair of Floatride Energy for the road which are also amazing! If you need a pair of shoes, especially if your not sure what to get, hit Joe up at Run Republic and he will get you all squared away! Stay safe out there!
