Last October while running Runner’s World 10K, Amy and I met Gary. Gary is a US rep for IceBug shoe company out of Sweden. One thing led to another and Gary offered to send us some IceBug’s to test once he got a new shipment from IceBug. IceBug is a fairly new name in the US, and just making their way into the market.

My legs are tired. I am doing another gel as I know I must keep going. I’ve been going for over 6 hours, up and down Bear Mountain. I know the finish line is near but I am not sure how much further I have to go. The last aid station was a few miles back. I didn’t care to look at their board as I have my trusty companion on my wrist that will tell me how much I have left. I glance at my watch. Shock! Disbelief. The freaking thing is dead. A blank screen stares at me and smiles, as if it’s saying, “Got cha sucker.” Curses in my head, but onward I go to finish my first 50 K (Bear Mountain 50K).
