Why yes it was me. I FINALLY broke down and got some new running shoes. Apparently I'm a "neutral" when it comes to shoes. I tried on two pairs of Asics and these Saucony above and these were the front runner. No surprise - this is my third pair in as many years. They have lots of padding and importantly - feel light on my feet. Let's see how they do tomorrow. The schedule is three nine minute runs. Hopefully my thighs and shins also hold out!
