Sisjön Morning Glory

Back in lovely Göteborg for the weekend, I decided to try out my brand new INOV8 Trailrocs on the forest trails of Sisjön today. The Trailrocs are off-road shoes with only a 3 mm drop, meaning there’s only a 3 mm difference in height between the ball of your foot and your heel. It forces you to adopt a more barefoot running style, especially when running uphill where you have to land on the front of your foot in order to stay balanced. Leaving the missus sleeping soundly, I set out early from mom and dad’s house, running up the steep slope towards Sisjön. Instead of running down the familiar wide gravel path I dove down small trails into the brush at every chance I got, jumping from wet rock to slippery root in the morning breeze, the brilliant Trailroc finding sure footing every single time. Half-way around the lake the sun finally burst through the clouds, reflecting itself in the clear waters of Sisjön.

8 km of blissful morning glory!
