Passing the Baton…

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.

Shoes First Snow Run…

Snow Shoes

Today we had our first real snowfall and the shoes went for their first run in the snow. The tempurature was pleasant compared to the last few days, so I thought a run in the snow would be nice. I went for about 5 miles along my regular route on the trail that runs nearby. The snow was the kind that is wet and heavy and sticks to the tree branches in that really cool way.
