Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

I can #conquerwinter With Yaktrax

Full Disclosure: I received a pair of Yaktrax free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I love snow... seriously... being a Southern girl from MS, and now living in PA, I still get super excited at just the mere mention of the word snow.

So, when we got 30 or so inches (The Blizzard of 2016) I was thrilled.

But I also found out the hard way that it's not always easy to walk (or run) in the snow or when there is re-freeze and it's icy. I have fallen numerous times.

I think I've found a solution. Meet my latest running (or hiking or walking) gear - yaktrax run 



When I pulled them out of the box, I was a little intimidated that they might be hard to get off and on my shoes. Well, I was worried for no reason. The Yaktax were super simple to put on. It really was as easy as the instructions stated. I don't have a lot of hand strength, but I was able to get them off and on without assistance. 

And with the strap over the toes, I didn't have to worry about them falling off. 

Although the yaktrax run are for snowy/icy road conditions, I did test them out on the trail. I wasn't able to get out when we had snow on the roads, and I really wanted to test these. 

So, I took them to the trail. Parts of the trail were already clear of snow, but some places there was still snow (and ice). And trust me, I could could tell the difference with the yaktrax. I didn't slip once! And I also felt super confident knowing that I had a better footing with them than without them. 

Would I recommend yaktrax? Most definitely! They made a big difference for me. And I really think they will for you also.

  1. Did you feel the wires under the shoe? I considered getting something like this, but my Nike Free shoes have a very thin sole... I opted for my trail running shoes.

    1. I didn't. I was wearing an older pair of asics though. I know the nike free shoes do have a very thin sole. I have trail shoes too, but I've found that they don't really help in the snow/ice. I'll have to try them on with my nike free and I'll let you know if I can feel it when I walk.
