So i'm searching blogger/blogspot for blogs about runners running and I'm not really finding much because I don't get how google has this stuff organized.
But I come across ur page. and Wow. right there at the top of the page u lead in with Dog running in woods...blister creme sales ad...and a 16 layer jello trifle creation!
It's the only runner's blog i could find, but at least it's a winner!

Julie!!! I am glad I found your blog. I have a question that I need to talk about with you concerning the Duluth Snowshoe Marathon. I picked up the registration forms (I've completed countless Grandma's and Twin Cities Marathons and know what to expect). I have never done a snowshoe marathon and not done a 'lot' of snowshoeing, but I really want to do this. That said, I have some questions...

Do I really need those expensive Atlas 'run' snowshoes to do this marathon? Or would those Yukon Charlies snowshoes (cheap) at Sam's Club be just fine? What kind of clothing would you suggest wearing? Did you bring music/ipod/anything like that? Would you suggest wearing the same kind of marathon socks (anti-blister)? If you have any other advice, I would really appreciate it, as I am trying to put the finishing touches on my gear in order to feel ready and confident for this race. I am in Duluth and there is NOTHING going on between now and April (for running events) and I figured this would be the perfect thing to look forward to.

My email is jonathanlund@me.com, hope to hear from you!!
