Two weeks ago I sprained my ankle playing Ultimate and since then I have lacked motivation to train. To try and get out of my funk, I did what any other red-blooded American would do, I went shopping. Bring it on, Amazon. Check out the new kicks I got…
All I can say is that these shoes are AWESOME. After doing every race in my Brooks Glycerin 10s–which are great running shoes–I knew that I wanted the added traction of trail runners. Strap a pair of these on and you’ll feel like you could run up the cliffs of Dover. The Salomon Speedcross 3 is an adventure racer’s shoe for sure, light-weight, superior traction, speed lacing system and, well, just look at them!
The best thing about new gear is that it makes you want to go and try it out. So, if you’re lacking motivation, bust out that credit card and buy something. You’ll be supporting our consumer driven economy and whipping your sorry butt into shape at the same time. And that’s what I call a double win.
I plan on using these during the Dixie Conquest on Saturday. Saturday! Man, I am dreading this race. It is 10 hours long and, like I said, my training has been lacking. After the race, I’ll write up a longer review of the shoes and let you know how they did. Thursday I might even give a brief write up of the pack we just purchased in preparation for the 30-hr Atomic. It’s SWEET!
For those of you that may not have heard of Ultimate–the greatest game ever–here are some highlights from the 2013 MLU Season.
