After the Philadelphia marathon, the Maryland half marathon, the Annapolis 10-mile and countless training miles in the heat, rain and snow, it is finally time for the shoes to take a rest and let another pair get in the game.
Unfortunately, this particular model of gel Nimbus is no loner in production. They are from two generations ago. It took some searching but, I finally found a New-In-Box pair on eBay. Normally, one would think buying out-of-print running shoes off of eBay would be a bad idea; but the first run this evening felt great! You don’t realize how much new shoes are needed until you finally get them.
So thank you, old shoes. You did your job well.
