I joined SP several years ago when I was approaching the BIG FIVE-O, with a goal of becoming healthier. I've learned there is no end point to that goal and I continually strive for a healthier lifestyle.

Did a Whole30 in June 2014, now eating mostly paleo and loving it
I'm a 56 year-old retiree, who found a new passion in running only a few years ago. I hope I can continue to nurture that passion, even if it means changing the way I do it. I've been married for 31 years to a wonderful man who gave me three amazing step-children and seven grandchildren.
Currently maintaining weight, recovering from two ankle and one knee surgery in 2013 - along with a rather traumatic bowel resection in January 2014. Getting back into strength training and running in 2014 and loving the feeling of getting stronger again.
Hi! The LA Marathon is March 21st (I think). I have a few weeks left to train and a few 20+ mile runs planned. I don't know what is going on with my feet/ blisters. I got a blood blister on one foot…icky poo. I haven't tried body glide yet. I'll have to get some. I might wear my trail shoes for this long run and spend next week trying out new shoes.
I'm a little stressed about it at this point because even if I bought new shoes, I'd have to find time to run before Saturday or run the risk of running 20 miles in brand new shoes.
Hi! I am SO glad that your marathon went well!!!! My 18 mile run was great, so my confidence is in a good place right now, except my NEW shoes are giving me major blisters. I have to get back in and try a new pair. That means I'll be running our 20 mile run on practically untested shoes :-(
I have been using moleskin and that is slowing the formation of blister, but do you have any suggestions?
