Mike, congrats on the 700 and barring any unfortunate injury no one is going to catch Jeff.
The Logic of Long Distance
An item for the group to consider. I ran my first 100 mile week in $40 asics racing flats. I don't even know the name of the shoe--itt's gold and has "Japan" written on the side. My achilles had been bothering me a bit, so I switched from my $110 trainers because the flats were looser around my tendon. My legs feel great. I'm beginning to think there's something to the minimalist movement...
You'll ruin your knees!
On a weird note unrelated to shoes: A coworker of mine developed a hp injury from running on the track. Since she was doing like 6 miles at a shot, all in the same direction, every time, she developed an issue. That was a new one to me.

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Are those really an old running shoe model, or are they based off of a wrestling shoe? Any of you old-timers run in something like those Pumas?
