New PB - 1km - (Read 1831 times)

      Here is the results from our local midget (gr9) girls race.  This is the LOWEST level of competition these students will compete in, and most (or all) of them will not train outside school.

      Please notice:  girl who won ran 3k in 11:49, or a 3:57 pace.  Like I said, little or no summer training, and only about 6 weeks of school training.

        Did you just reference Smegma?

         

          If anyone has run in Montrail Sabino and/or NB MT10, please let me know.

          I'll also throw the Montrail Masochist into that mix.

            I've run in the Masochist...

              What are your impressions?

                I wasn't terribly impressed with them.  Toe box was a bit on the small side and I seemed to blow out the midsole cushioning relatively fast.  I was only getting a couple hundred miles per pair out of them.  Tread was fine for dry trails, but wasn't very good in snow or mud.  Overall, one of my least favorite shoes of the last 3-4 years.

                  Thanks, Chris.  Very helpful, especially with respect to the toe box. Gonna find the Sabino and give it a whirl.

                    I have heard nothing but good things about the MT10. I don't like the price though.

                      I've done this but it had nothnig to do with a shoe

                        It's a rare thread indeed when a lion on stilts makes the most sense.

                          Are you getting enough protein?

                            It should be mathematical, but it's not.

                              Wow. I didn't even know RB still existed. Good to know they're still adept at shoe-horning a 2 minute video into 5 and a half minutes.

                               

                              Still there. Perhaps you just stopped noticing it existed when Amanda Congdon left.

                                Junior mentioned that this dude does not appear to be AARP-age.  Which is true.

                                 

                                He also doesn't look quite...well... right.  The fivehead is ok, but other stuff is just off.
