Now my New Balance Vazee Rush v2’s have been sitting in the shoe rack since April 7th. I stopped running in them at that time, because didn’t know if they were part of the solution or part of the problem with my left foot bothering. However, I haven’t run in them or my other New Balance shoes very often since then and the foot has improved immensely. I have walked around in the Rush v2’s pain-free over the past week and figured that it was time to find out.

It would be a good day to test them out.

Today I was supposed to run for 50 minutes easy and the weather was just about perfect. Continue reading

Of course, Bennie was ready to run and would have been a real pissant if I had left him behind after not too many runs this week. Yeah, he went along or is that he lead most of the way.

I worked on my mechanics until we started down the Bitch, just to get used to the feel of the V/Rush v2’s outside. I know that I run differently outside than I do on the treadmill and I needed to get used to the Rush since they have about half the drop that I have been running in recently. Continue reading
