I went to Front Runner today to get a new pair of shoes. I was either going to get the current shoe that I have only 1/2 bigger or something similar.
The sales person mentioned to me that he had the same Pearl pair but they only lasted him 69 miles! They started to show some severe wear on the outside. He showed me where mine had worn out in the same spot. He brought out the Pearl Izumi (1/2 larger) and the Asics Gel-2120.
The Asics felt better than the Pearl, but I was a bit gun shy because with the current Asics pair that I have (Gel-1120) my left foot starts hurting in the ball area after 2 or 3 miles. I might as well just save me the money and run in those.
Then he brought out the Saucony. They seemed to feel really good. He told me to go run around the block, which I did. To make a long story short: I ended up with the Saucony Trigony 5.
Of course now I want to go out there and try them out on a run. But, my body is tired, I will hold myself back and go at it tomorrow. School is starting back up for me tomorrow evening, so I might just hop on the elliptical rider with them (after all I don’t want to fall asleep in class), but I reserve the right to change my mind. Of course!
