Preparing for Race Day

Tomorrow is the “big day” (well, it is for me).

I spent the past few days doing more bicycling than running – ease a bit of the stress off of the knees.  But I did run today.  Just under a 10 minute mile (average speed I seem to run right now).

I also wanted to try out my new running shoes. I picked them up yesterday. ASICS Men’s GEL-Kanbarra 5 Running Shoe,Silver/Black/Royal,9 MCushioning Shoes) Reasonably priced and very good reviews.

Which reminds me. What’s up with Modells Sporting Goods these days? I figured, hey, I want running shoes, let’s go to a sporting goods shop.

They had Asics, but a VERY limited selection and none in my size (11). And the other brands they carry were very limited also.  I was very disappointed. Perhaps it was just our store?

At any rate, I walked out of there and walked over to Kohl’s Department Store (figured why not). Let me tell you…they had a much larger stock of Asics, and a larger overall selection in general. Go figure – a department store having a bigger selection of athletic gear than a sporting goods store.

Anyway, I ran in these today and they are very comfortable. I guess I will wear them tomorrow.

I will post tomorrow with the race results. I am running with a friend of mine, so at least I will know someone there.

Til then…
