BLACK RUNNING SHOES!



Regular, otherwise-normal Asics GT 2110 running shoes, but black. I decided I'm tired of brand-new running shoes looking like crap after a couple of runs. Why do they make running shoes white, anyway? The guy at Road Runner Sports said probably so you'll buy new shoes sooner. Anyway, along with white/lime and "silver"/blue in women's sizes, they also had black. What the heck, I already look like a weird runner in my cutoffs. Maybe I'll switch to rainbow multi-colored shoelaces on my black shoes.

They feel wonderful, light, cushiony, stable. I loved my 2100's and this is the next incarnation. Read about them at the RRS link above.

Lost Dutchman Half Marathon tomorrow!

Good luck tomorrow. I love the new shoes. I always wanted a black pair so I could wear them with dress pants and not get funny looks at the office. I live in runners...lol.

Good luck with the half!

I wear those Asics, I think I might need the black ones too. They just look cool!

Also, I like the new hair :)

How did it go? You didn't wear the brand new shoes, did you? I'm looking for results at http://www.lostdutchmanmarathon.org/opening.htm but nothing yet. :-(

About the black shoes in AZ, good idea. They all look brown sooner or later. Asiscs finally came out with a tanish/peach color which perfectly matches the hardpack on the trails and canals out here.

Nothing like dirty outta the box to make you feel good.
