Totally unplanned but totally meant to be – collaboration with Nike, CNCPTS, Reyn Spooner, and Godzilla!

Rona Runs: Infinity React
To past the time and maintain some fitness, I’ve been running with the kids. Shorter distances with some walking but several times a week. So far, wearing the Nike Infinity Reacts I cannot complain. No pain even though more (but shorter) outings.
