It’s that time again.
My shoes have served me well and we’ve traveled many miles together. There were good runs and bad runs. However, the sad truth of marathon training is that shoes don’t last nearly as long. Both pairs – my Sauconys and Asics – have about reached their mile limits. They’ll make it through the last couple weeks before the race, but barely.
So I’ve already bought a new pair of each. While I did look around, ironically, I essentially got the same ones. The exact same (different color) Saucony Kinvara 2 and the next model of the Asics – GT 2170. Due to the time crunch (I waited a bit too long, aka I forgot), it would be a bad idea so close to the race to go for a new and untried brand/pair. Better to get what I know works in preparation for race day.
Less than 3 weeks to go! The new shoes should be getting in tomorrow, so I’ll put a picture up soon.
