My current Nike Zoom Vomero running shoes had over 1,000 miles on them and at the running store I debated between another pair of Nike Vomeros and Brooks Glycerin shoes. Nike won.
I went for a Saturday morning run and as I was stretching afterward I noticed that the soles of my shoes were essentially shot. I’d known for a while that my Nike Zoom Vomeros were pretty much at the end of their life–the tear in the side ventilation was a dead giveaway. But for some […]
I have said before that running is not a beauty contest. I think I have also posted along the way that somehow, despite the fact that I am not a ‘pink’ person (I trend toward purple, green, and earth tones) the bulk of my work-out gear and accessories seems to end up being pink. All […]

I’m coming up to the mileage and wear mark where I need to replace my running shoes. I typically alternate between super lightweight trainers for 3-6 mile runs and then my ‘standard’ running shoe for longer distances and races. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I’m a Nike girl with […]
