Here is a picture of my new Toasty Toes insole.... According to the advertisement, testers have stood barefoot on a block of dry ice (with a surface temperature of—106°!), while the top of the insoles stayed at +72°. These babies are going to be a lifesaver.

We got word that my co-worker Len is out of intensive care and moving about. He must be doing really good because there is a good chance he'll be going home this weekend! Can you imagine that, by-pass surgery on Monday and going home on the weekend?

We're getting into some serious cold weather, they're closing schools! I may even have to move my BEvERages from the garage into the house......

So today will be another day of indoor track running for me. We have a group training run tomorrow morning, so I'll have to bite the bullet and brave the elements.

Happy Friday.........

ohhhhhh! i need to get some of those insoles. I'm curious to hear how you like them! Great news about Len too, sounds like his recovery is going well :) Happy weekend!

I might need a pair of those...it was only 35 this morning. =-P

Good find, hopefully they help. Sounds like you might be having slushies if you don't get all your "beverages" inside.

My water bottles froze in my car last night ... let me know how those Toasty things go!

Not sure if you read my comment, but thanks for wanting to share Austin's story with your team -- I know it will touch them like it's touched us. He is truly an inspiration!

Let us know how they work. Did you find the many cheaper than the $99.99 I have seen on the net.
