With the second coming of my marathon running season, I have tried to motivate myself to get out there and build that base. This time around I am starting to train with the wifey, which makes it all the more fun. That being said, I am publishing this as the days careen down the hill to the cliff with the reckless abandon of a drunk hill billy high on peyote and LSD. On a whim the other day, I stopped by our local running store and bought some accessories for running long distance in the dark, when I decided that I needed a new pair of running shoes. Needless to say, it was fast and furious, but with the help of the assistant, I was able to narrow down to the Kinavara 3’s and I must say they are quickly becoming my favorite pair of running shoes ever. The shoes are so light weight and supremely comfortable that after a ten mile run and another almost nine mile run last week, I was solid for most of my performance. I have to admit that coming home from work today, I was looking forward to a nice five miler with the new shoes (the cooler weather also helps). Any way I just wanted to say that I truly appreciate those that listen to my bumbling and they have a wonderful experience, can’t say that I do.
