4mm drop by rms[_2_]

hypoallergenic duck tape or equivalent? by Jason[_4_]
I have occasionally used duck tape to prevent or cover blisters on my feet, but I am allergic to it and break out in rashes similar to poison ivy. On my ankles, this wasn't a problem as I usually only have to use it for a couple of weeks until my new shoes are broken in, then the rash goes...

New Year Goals by John Hurley
# Tell us what your goals are for the new year. I have to admit this group became kind of boring after I was one of the few posting regularly. To keep adding "6 days in / 1 off 40-45 miles" ... well that's fairly expected by now right? I want to get back to a better racing weight this year ( 172...
