As I write this, I’m rounding out Day 8 of a 14-day government-mandated quarantine in a hotel just outside of Auckland, New Zealand. I’ve just moved with my husband and two kids from Summer in Portland, Oregon.

We must have looked like a traveling circus barreling down the road. My three and one-year-old daughters giggled and clapped while singing at the top of their lungs from the double jogging stroller, flanked on either side by a 65-pound Weimaraner dog gracefully trotting with a long tongue falling out the side of their smile.
Let’s dig into recovery, specifically recovery footwear and recovery sandals. Are they necessary? Well, that’s up for debate…but I think it is a fair bet your feet will be stoked to slide out of your sweaty running shoe or hiking boots and into a pair of comfortable, airy sandals after you’re run or hike.
In preparations for Run4Water, my attempt to run 130-miles nonstop across Maine for a clean water project in Tanzania, these legs have lots of strides to take and miles to log before then. Most of my long training runs have been exploring local trails & finding routes near home.

There are certain books written about all the things running will/can/could/should/would teach you. But there are a handful of notions that I find funny or liberating that I’d like to highlight from my own (not-so-graceful) journey.
In an effort to create a more complete and sound outdoor community Trail Sisters will be including hiking and backpacking in our future coverage!
We want women to feel included and encouraged to play on the trails, no matter their pace or mode of foot-to-dirt powered activity.
