Replacement for Utopia III Thermal Hoodie- any jackets out there with same fabric?
I have been wearing the Utopia hoodie almost every day for the past two years. It's to the point that my friends and family are sick of seeing it (eek). I have tried very hard to find a replacement for it but there doesn't seem to be a jacket with the same fabric on their website ever. I can't handle even the slightest trace of wool so a few of the hoodies available are not for me. I've tried other brands but the fabric of this jacket is too good and they all pale in comparison.    Does anyone know of a good replacement or if Brooks plans to release a new thermal brushed hoodie/jacket in the same polyester/spandex blend?    Many thanks!

Thoughts on turning 70
OMG! 70 - still coaching, still running, still racing and still having fun 😉. One of my daily mantras was written by Magdalena Lewy Boulet and it goes like this, "You can get up and remind yourself that you're getting older and things are harder and your life is busy.  I take the other choice. I try to see the best. My life is great. I have amazing opportunities ahead of me and I make the best out of it and try not to beat myself up that age has anything to do with it.  I know there's a reality that eventually, ok, I won't be able to pr, and that's fine. As long as I can trick my body and my mind a little longer, I'm going to have fun with it". Still Running Happy with many miles to go ........... And, a big shout-out to Brooks in supporting me as a Brooks I.D. Coach along the way and into my next age group.

Find best shoe for rehab after knee replacement surgery
Having my 2nd knee replacement surgery and want to find a good shoe for rehab. After my 1st replacement during rehab my feet were in a lot of pain. Ended up just taking my shoes off which my physical therapist didn't recommend.

Inspiration from Steve Prefontaine--Why we run
"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement." Steve Prefontaine

Quote from Glenn Cunningham
    All runners should know the story of Glenn Cunningham. At age eight, his legs were badly burned in a fire, and he was told he would never walk again. But the determined lad wouldn't listen to doctors, and he vowed he would walk, and even run again. Eventually he would set the mile world record and win a silver medal in the 1936 Olympic 1500.

State of running specialty stores
What is the overall state of running specialty stores. It seems many are struggling, losing out to the lower prices of internet outlets. Personally, I don't mind paying a bit more from a local store, since I feel I get so much more for my time and effort. And they serve several valuable services to the local running community, with training programs, race promotion, and equipment advice.   What's your take on this?
