New shoes!

May 12, 2010

Running shoes are modest affairs, right? Stripped back up top, but loaded with padding and maybe some support for the soles. Most are some kind of box-fresh white until they get sullied through a good muddy run or just start to show their age through wear and tear.

With the racing season ahead of me, I decided it was time I got some new, fast shoes. I need to wear them in before Sunday when I’ll be running the Town & Gown 10k. But they feel fast, and extremely light. They’re stripped right back to basics to make every gram count.

One thing I hadn’t quite factored, when I ordered them, was that they’re not exactly subtle. And is that some kind of tiger-print detail? Hmm, if my speed’s not up to scratch yet after all the distance running, at least I’ll be making a statement.

Making a statement (although I'm not sure about the content of the statement).
