Easy day - New shoes - What Kurt Really Needs

Today was an easy day. Tried out the new shoes on the treadmill at work. First mile they just felt like really new shoes. Like, these aren't my shoes. Did a bit of cross-training (rowing and cycling), with some weights mixed in. On the cool down run, the shoes really started feeling comfortable. "Ooh, these feel good on my feet!" Tomorrow I'll probably go in to work just to use the treadmill again (it's supposed to rain, and just in case the shoes don't work out, I could still return them). However, at this point I fully expect to be running in them on Sunday at the Gingerbread 5K in Wellesley.

Not much else going on. Oh, and here's what Kurt really needs: Kurt needs a new hard drive for one of the spare PCs so he can load Linux on it (and hack the kernel), Kurt needs to practice guitar at least as regularly as he runs ( do that in all keys), Kurt needs to hit the thrift store tomorrow to complete the Halloween costume (Howard Hughes), Kurt needs to find a new apartment in Boston (cuz this cave is depressing), Kurt needs to drink less coffee (no way, man!), Kurt needs to get more sleep if he wants to run fast on Sunday (c'mon, the race doesn't start until noon), Kurt needs to sign off NOW (OK, fine).

Haven't found shoes that were "comfortable" in a long time.

I am settling for, "don't really notice them" :)

Hey, what shoes did you get? I got the new Saucony's (grid tigon) and I love them even for my narrow feet.
How about I'll run with a beer box on my head and you run with a coffee cup on yours :) ? You can never have too much coffee!

I've got wide feet and Brooks have always fit well. I was going to get another pair of the Adrenaline 5's, but was talked into the Radius (for $10 less). Less motion control, a little lighter, more cushion -- that's my take in the first 7 miles.
