Everyone asks me about the shoes I wear. First, during the 100 mile race I change my shoes about 4 times. Second, you need to train on the shoe you are racing in. Everyone has a different foot and the feel in the shoe at the end of the training should be your best judgement of how well the shoe performed. I started with Muzuno, tried several Acics and ended in Brooks every time. I have been running exclusively in brooks until I purchased a new shoe called Altra zero drop. I have been running on this shoe for two weeks and love it! The concept of this shoe is it is flat and a lot of room for the toes. My body felt great during the run and the next day for my recovery run. I am running large volume of miles right now so the shoe is a huge choice. I am sold. We will see how it holds out in my up coming race in 7 weeks! I’m so excited!!!!
