Huzzah!


Observe fellow runners! Feast your eyes on these. Allow me to present my newest and fancy pants silver springy runners! I scampered off with the advice to my nearest sporting goods store where upon a gum chewing base-ball wearing youth agreed with poster aquaasho that 'Yer, dem are de best one fer runnin' and support that ye can buy.'
'Zounds!' I said, 'They're super light.'
'Yer' He said and moved his gum to the other side of his mouth.
'They make my other ones seem like carpet slippers.'
'You wanna box?' He said trying hard to stay awake.
'Surely.' I said, turning my foot thither and yon.
He wandered off at minus one mile to the hour and returned a century later with the box. So I"m photographing that too.

I'm super smitten with them and plan to take them out for a spin in the morning. Are they not swish?

I did not. If I had asked said youth about pronation I might still be there while he worked out what it was I was talking about. But I will check it out.

I bet the kenyans and paula radcliffe are worried now.

I'm so jealous, I stocked up on so many pairs of kayanos during Arnotts sale at Christmas that I won't be buying runners for about 4 years!

May you have lots of happy running miles in them! (About 500 anyway).

How is the knee BTW?

They look seriously good. I've spent the last three weeks in Havianas and I think my feet have spread a couple of inches, just not used to flat. Back to the the 4 inch slut shoes now.

When he said 'You wanna box?' I'm surprised you didn't take him at his word and deliver a right hook to his head.
