They're Nike Free Run 3's - an early Birthday present from the Wife.
I'm glad I was able to get them early, as they are a more minimal shoe than I normally run in, and I want to give my feet time to adapt to them before my training starts May 21st.
Aren't they sexy? I think they are sexy, sexy shoes.
I agonized over making the change from my Asics. I checked reviews, read online, went to the store and looked, and debated, debated, debated.
I've ran in them twice now, a 3 and a 5 miler - so far they feel great, almost like they aren't even there. The difference in weight is amazing, and my Asics were pretty light to begin with.
If you happen to be in Victoria in the fall, and are watching the Marathon unfold, keep a lookout for these sexy shoes - and the sexy legs they are attached to - they'll probably be carrying a very tired runner.
But he'll look fucking fantastic.
