    Salomon SLAB Sense Ultra Trail Running Shoes review by Hanny Allston

    Finding a shoe that will meet most of our requirements as a trail runner is really difficult. Not only do races throw multiple challenges at us - single tracks, rougher terrain, roads - so too does the weather!  What happens when the rocks get slippery or the scale of muddiness increases? Then of course we all partake in training or ‘missioning’.

Whilst it had come down to the wire, I felt wind-chapped & glowing from the inside out. That was until injury hit and I took a visit to my GP.

    Find Your Feet

    Sometimes you reach a point where you know some things need to change.  In February 2016 I realised that it was time to audit my life after experiencing the devastation of raging fires in northern Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area, a back injury and turning 30 years old.  I started journalling my thoughts and actions, quickly realising that I felt completely unharmonious between my intentions and actions.  Furthermore, I knew that my body wasn’t healthy.  I looked fit and was running strongly on paper, but underneath this there were old habits that were holding me back.  Crunch point.
