    These suckers are going to guarantee a sub-3 marathon.


    Feeling the growl again

      Unfortunately not true in my case.

       

      Well, it at least explains your recent progression.  Big grin

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.


        Feeling the growl again

           

          Ridiculous hyperbole.  Reminds me of those elevator shoe ads that run constantly in all the airline rags promising you confidence, riches, women, and a two-term presidency.

              And I thought my new Saucony Kinvara 3's were bad.  When I got home I told my family no one would have an excuse to hit me, and their reply was that 'at least they'll see my shoes going flying down the road and realize they hit me'.  Loving families, eh?  Big grin

                Ugh!  They need to stop this non-sense.

                 

                Getting nervous if the runner next to you has bad-ass flats.

                  I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house

                    A lady in one of these passed me in the last half mile of the marathon last year...

                      My friend on his last trip to a running store:

                       

                      "I didn't buy any shoes there because the prices failed to reflect that they resemble a pair of Budgerigars."

                        I'm a little bitter that grown-ups can't get those shoes with the flashing LEDs that all the kiddos have/had.

                          I recently got a new pair of Asics GT2000:

                           

                           

                          There was a time when you only saw shoes colored like that at races, worn by people who were there to destroy you and everything you believed in.

                           

                          Now that I'm part of the waddling, middle-aged running proletariat, I suppose the egalitarian thing to say would be "fun colors for all!", but I will admit to missing the days when only people who had serious game would have the audacity, nay, the worthiness to wear shoes that loud.

                          Show up in the matching car and they will know you are still serious.

                            Wow . . . . there are some truly ugly running shoes out there these days.
