Great job!  And congratulations!

What kind of tips can you share regarding running a long distance like that in VFFs?  Did you need to re-adjust your technique throughout the race?

Congrats Matthew!  I'm in no  danger of winning any races but do find the treks to be awesome on trails.  Glad to see someone really burning up the trails in them.  Thanks for sharing your victory.

Jim, note his age.  He probably hasn't had enough time spent running with bad form.  That is why the transition for him wasn't that bad, I am guessing.

Good luck in your trail race. How long is the race? Are you wearing Treks?  Sending positive energy your way!!
