Today I ran at Jonathan Dickinson State Park and decided to try a little experiment as I knew the sand spurs would be epic on the Dunes of Hell. I took commercial grade paper towels and attached them to my laces and most of the spurs stuck to them. Then I removed the paper towels and hence, most of the Spurs, and removed the rest with a micro fiber cloth. Then I removed the spurs from the cloth with my teeth. Yes, I said “my teeth”. This may sound gross but it works! Voila-no spurs anywhere!

Yesterday, I ventured out of my comfort zone to meet up with a group of friends to run a portion of the Grassy Waters Preserve trail system in West Palm Beach, FL. I typically prefer to run in the Jupiter area, but decided it was time I explored something new and I’m so glad I did! Since I wanted to run at least 15 miles this weekend, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so and not have to run alone! So I met up with the group at 7 AM and planned to run two 8-mile loops around a portion of the trail system known as the Owahee Trail.
