Ricky —our ability to perform up to our physiological potential in a race is determined by whether or not we truly psychologically believe that what we are attempting is realistic. Anton Krupicka
When I'm ready to replace my NB 767 I will probably go with the Saucony ProGrid Omni 6 Moderate. I tried those on the other day and they were my second choice after the Asics. About $45 cheaper, too, so they'd be nice to have for shorter runs...not real keen on spending $135 on a pair of shoes more than I have to.
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Did they also have you try GT-2120's (or whatever the current GT series is up to)? If the Kayanos work for you, I think the GT series fits similar.
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
You'll ruin your knees!

You can always spot a triathlete in a crowd of people in street cloths. They're the ones with all the latest brand-name sporty looking clothing, sunglasses, watch, shoes, phone, iPod, back-pack/shoulderbag, etc.
