It feels like I've changed shoes so often lately...
A few months ago I went and had my gait analyzed at a local running store and switched up brands of shoes. Tried the Saucony Omni's for a couple months and since then I have had serious blisters - I thought they would eventually quit rubbing, but it didn't really happen.
So, by a stoke of luck (haha) I was planning to do a trail run in KC in the middle of a 2 week work trip and had asked the man to bring my clothes and shoes when he came to meet me. As luck would have it he forgot. No worries, I'm a runner I can always use new shoes! ;-)
So, off to the closest sporting goods store we went - they had a limited selection of trail shoes - decided on some Asic Gel Enduro's - low end, but they seemed to be functional enough for what I was wanting (and they did get me through a 2 hour trail run in the snow - see previous blog). While we were there the man talked me into trying on a pair of his favorite running shoes - Mizuno's. I tried on two different kinds, but after some humorous running around the make shift 'track' at the store with my jeans rolled up and the man taking video of my form - I decided I really liked the Wave Inspire.
I'll have to give further updates after more wear, but after using them for a 45 mile week (including a 22 mile run) they are great - no break-in time required as far as I can tell. Three weeks till OKC, we'll see how they hold up there!! :-)
