First run in the NB MT00s

I probably should have gotten on the bike today instead of running, since the temps were well in the 50s, but I ended up running the local trails instead and took the MT00s out for their first run. I’m not … Continue reading

Sockless, in the Asics Piranhas

I took the Asics Piranhas out for their first sockless run.  I thought I was getting some abrasion on my instep, but that turned out to not be an issue and I ran the whole 5.5 miles sockless.  Usually, it … Continue reading

Review: Endomondo & Brooks T7 (and a 12 mile run with some pics)

After using Endomondo (for the Blackberry) for a week now, I find I can’t recommend it.  It’s biggest flaw is the lack of an auto-pause and auto-resume feature.  This might be less of an issue if you ran with your … Continue reading

Soiled my new Brooks T7s!

I decided not to wait for clean roads before breaking out the Chrissie Wellington Edition Brooks T7s.  They were nice and clean before this run, but after 7.5 miles of snow, slush, and slop, they look well used. The conditions … Continue reading

Running 7 miles with a Mizuno Wave Universe on the RIGHT foot, an Asics Piranha on the LEFT.

Yes, this is the opposite of what I did last week, when I ran with the Wave Universe on the left foot and the Piranha on the right.  In that run I found the Universe to be a bit sloppy … Continue reading

Running 8 miles with a Mizuno Wave Universe on the left foot, an Asics Piranha on the right.

12 Miles, sub-zero temps, and eyelash icicles

I had another great run today.  I got up late, but it was still cold; my thermometer read 0°F.  I suspect it was a degree or two colder since my thermometer is slightly protected.  I am therefor calling this my … Continue reading
