Runamoc update

NOT having a good day.  My cat Mickie died in her sleep sometime last night and while she was old, she wasn't THAT old and it was very unexpected.  So now I'm sitting here not preparing for the first part of my capstone exam that is taking place in less than 2 hours, and instead sorting through my pictures from backpacking last weekend and eating a morning bun from starbucks.

So, I've decided to post something easy that doesn't require a lot of update on my runamocs and how much I love them.

I have a newer pair of Runamocs (generation 3) that are pink and have very thin soles, but for hiking and trail stuff, I still prefer my original pair of black runamocs.  They don't see a lot of use beyond hiking and backpacking these days, but I gave them another thorough work out last weekend.  Here's some shots of them doing a fabulous job on a rather technical trail:

I've tried out a couple of different barefoot/minimalist shoe options and runamocs remain my favorite, both on the trail and off. 

Here's a short video of me going down the trail in them.

The rest of the trip is more relevant to Tess's blog than this one, so I'll be posting more of the story and pics over there.  


  1. I'm so sorry about your kitty. Never here long enough.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your cat-friend.

  3. The elves at Soft Star send their condolences.

  4. So sorry to hear about your kitty :(

  5. Matt found her this morning and said she was exactly like she sleeps in her regular spot, so I think she literally died in her sleep, which the vet student part of me wants to scream and say that's impossible, that there is something. But the truth is that she was an older cat, who hasn't.had an easy life, who was probably really good at hiding stuff that was wrong because of get feral background. No change in behavior or habits.

  6. Sorry to hear about your kitty. Cats are very good at hiding pain.. good video..

  7. when you first said "coming down the trail", I was hopeful and wincing thinking it might be the "coming down the trail" that mom talks about in her blog involving snow and a precipice.
