I am running mostly on dry grass now, thanks for the drought. Very Happy I am getting better handling the uneven surfaces etc. One problem is some tiny grass/leaf gets into my shoes once awhile that I stopped 3-4 times this morning.

Any tip from you trail runners?

No, no barefoot. lol!

The best brand of gaiters (I've been told) is "Dirty Girl Gaiters." Yes, they make men's sizes.

Most definitely the best. I met the woman who created them once while assisting a friend training for Badwater in DV. She's a kick - but I scored a free pair of camo ones. I wear them when I run on the dusty, cinder trails here during our drought.

My Babel-Fish translator comes up with "Your his mother said anything." I think something got lost in translation.

So you are going to wear gators to keep a little dry grass out of your shoe? Seriously? Wow Jerry, you are sooooo sensitive!

Hey Jerry how long are your grass runs? do you keep your same pace or does the grass slow you down(not counting time you stop to pick grass out of shoes).Is the grass mowed and short ?

According to Urban Dictionary, HTFU means "Harden The F*^& Up" and is used to tell a weak person or persons that they have become far too weak, and to prevent further embarrassment to the human race, they must Harden The F*^& Up.

I imagine the grass is brown and looks like West Texas, i.e. thin, low and sparse. Smile

Amy,

oz is right. It's been terribly dry here this year. I run on the grass along city's jogging/bike trail.

Still, the grass slows me down significantly. Having done this just for a week, I am surprised how fast I adapt to it this week. I feel I can handle real grass, like a good soccer field, which I did run before, much better now.

Give it a try.
