How to Transition to Zero Drop Running – The Evelin Version

As I came back from an injury spring of 2013 I had some problems with what shoes to go for when retiring my Asics Gel-Neo33. After eyeing the beautiful SKORA Running shoes for more than 6 months I finally took the leap and ordered myself two pairs in April 2013. Since then…



Less Running, More Sightseeing

June started off with a few great runs and then our friends from Seattle showed up to celebrate a ten day vacation with us. We hadn’t seen our close friends since early December and it was so nice to spend some quality time together and get to show them around on “our” island. While I…

Running Coach? Yes please and You’re Welcome
