Product Review: Superfeet ADAPT Run Insoles

Do you use running insoles?  When I was running track in high school I had custom made orthotics but over the years my feet changes and I have to admit that I have tried insoles over the years but I haven’t used them consistently.

When I had an issue with my peroneal tendon on my left foot, my orthopedist recommended Superfeet for when walking around so I have used their product. I was using the Berry Everyday Comfort Insoles.

These new ADAPT Run insoles are different though, they are first and foremost designed for running and they are not only made with two layers of cushioning, the Adaptive Comfort Technology is a patented design that is made to help your feet to move the way they are supposed to.  There is a responsive forefoot & a heel cushion, which I personally need as I tend to heel strike especially when I’m tired.

Another incredible benefit that the ADAPT Run insoles have is that they have a feature called MoistureWickTM which improves wicking and breathability and controls odor which can be an issue with insoles.

The ADAPT Run & Run Max insoles retail for $49.95 per pair.

There are two ADAPT RUN Styles, the ADAPT Run that I got that has a thinner profile, a lower arch for those of us with a medium to low arch, and medium shaped heel cup & the ADAPT Run Max that has a higher arch & a deeper heel cup for those with a high arch.

I put my ADAPT Run insoles into my running shoes and noticed a difference immediately as soon as I stood up.  They didn’t feel overly hard like most orthotics do.  These cushioned insoles felt really comfortable on my feet. I couldn’t wait to test them out and ran immediately outside to test them out!

Superfeet has outdone themselves with the ADAPT Run insole series.  These are the first pair of flexible and cushioned insoles I have ever tried and they make me excited to go run knowing that they are made to feel like a part of my shoes.

Have you tried Superfeet?  Do you like a cushioned shoe?  Head over to shop Superfeet’s New ADAPT Run Insoles & get your own pair!  I hope you love them as much as I do!

#IAMLIMITLESS Movement & Thoughts on what’s to come in 2018

I’m partnering up with FitApproach & Gixofit to kick off the #IAMLIMITLESS movement for 2018.  This is a sponsored post.

After a rough 2017, I was totally looking forward to a clean slate and starting 2018 on a very positive note.  When FitApproach asked me to be a part of the #IAMLIMITLESS campaign, it was at the perfect time.  I had been floundering at the end of 2017, stuck in a rut where, like I mentioned in my Resolution Run recap, I was sitting on the couch being sucked into iPhone games when I wasn’t working.

I had gone from being incredibly motivated to being lazy, not able to motivate myself to do anything but eat & sleep when I wasn’t working or traveling.  But as Sean & I were hiking up the boulders on New Year’s Eve, I realized that I was giving into my fears.  Somewhere along the way last year, I got sucked into all the drama I was seeing on Facebook and scared myself out of leaving my house.  How did that happen?

As I was climbing up those boulders, some of which were significantly bigger than I was, I knew that I had to push past my fears if I wanted to reach my goals.  One of my biggest fears, the one that most likely let all the Facebook drama win, failure. But fail at what? Running.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now why would I say I’m afraid to fail at running.  I’ve done 42 half marathons, 17 marathons, 7 50ks, 2 50 milers & a 100k.  I’ve DNF’d at 4 races so obviously I’m not afraid of not finishing.  But what if I actually worked really hard & I failed?  I was putting all this pressure on myself before I even started.

It was time to put all that and all the baggage from 2017 behind me and push past these limits I put on myself.  Let’s see what happens then.  I’ve already seen that at the end of a long week of running I can almost beat my half marathon PR, with little training, so what could I do if I actually trained.

After seeing Billy Yang’s newest film, The Why, it was important to share my Why (re: Running) with you, my friends and followers.  It was something I’ve been pondering for months, since I got injured.  Why do I want to do this?

My biggest goals for 2018? Explore, adventure, try new things and enjoy every minute.

Now that I’ve seen that I can almost beat my half PR, I definitely want to crush that.  I’d love to go under 4 hours in the marathon, get a Western States qualifier & do my first 100 miler.  I want to find a group of people to run & to train with (when we are in town).

I have a bunch of races on the schedule for the first half of the year.  I’m looking forward to doing a mix of shorter distances along with ultras as well.  We are working on our summer/fall schedule now that the lotteries are pretty much finished, with hopefully a few new races on the schedule.

I’m also looking forward to visiting some new places while revisiting places we’ve been before.  We have been traveling a lot & we have a tendency to revisit places quite often so we decided to kick off the year with a trip to a new to us destination, Borrego Springs on the edge of San Diego County & home to one of the largest state park in California, Anza Borrego Desert State Park.  If the wives tale saying what you do on New Year’s is what you do all year is true, if we visit somewhere new hopefully we’ll visit a lot of new places ;).

And on that note, we’ve already booked our first trip to visit Yosemite in May.  I’m so excited to finally get to visit!

I’ve been dealing with a lot of digestive distress, so I’m transitioning to a vegan diet and completely eliminated dairy & eggs.  I’m looking forward to fixing my gut & getting back to feeling better in that area.

Some of this years goals are more broad than I’ve done in the past but as the year goes on, I’ll flesh them out as I push past my limits.

Have you ever imposed limits on yourself?  How did you push past them?
