Invasion of the HOKA 12

Jemez weekend is upon us and here comes the Hoka’s, Melter and Mermoud will be sporting the latest in trail shoe design ! I had the chance to bounce around in the Hoka’s for a moment and I must say “wow”!¬† The new trail shoe design reminds me of the ski industry when fat skis hit the scene, (hero skis) now we have hero trail shoes?

Mafate Limited Edition

By using an EVA 30% softer and increasing its total volume to 2.5 times that of a typical trail running shoe, we allow for more cushioning than any other shoe on the market today, dissipating up to 80% of the shock associated with heal striking when running..Read more>>>

Jemez Mountain Trail Runs 2

Jemez 50 miler, time to get serious as Zane Grey was a “off the couch 50 miler” training run. The Jemez 50 is chalk full of savvy veteran trail runners along with Assistant Director for the Wasatch Speed Goat’s Tim Barnes, look for Meltzer trekking with a hunk of cast on his right arm, will it slow him down?

Jemez looks like my type of course with a ton of vertical crossing three 10,000 foot peaks, great training run for the upcoming Bighorn 100 and Ultra -Trail  du Mont Blanc.


Scrape on!
