You have any beta on the Moab Trail Marathon? Worth checking out for a guy like me (a guy without speed coming back from injury)? Have considered it, though I've been balking on the drive. That and I need to know if this shin is gonna heal up. Feeling good now though (without running on it).

I saw that race too and it looks like an interesting run. I'm not planning on doing it this year but most likely will plan on it next year...

I haven't seen or run the course yet. Next week I am going to Moab for two weeks to recon the course. I am sure it is a great course though and I have heard a bunch of great things about the race.

Cool, let me know what you think of it.

I will, how is the shin?

Well, I haven't run on it, but have walked a few miles and it's been fine, no real issues. Every once and a while a niggle, but mostly I can't feel it. Been doing the calcium pill/ice twice a day, seems to have helped. I'll test it this weekend, hopefully I can start back a few miles at a time without issue.

I know this will sound weird but maybe try training in Hokas...? When Peter had his stress fracture he used Hokas to provide inane amounts of cushion and it definitely helped him train while he was still recovering...

Peter swore that those shoes really helped him get back at it. I bought a pair but I didn't like them because they were too narrow. That's good news on the shin.
