My mystery running shoes have arrived

Fresh out of the box

A long day and late night on Thursday translated into another ad hoc rest day this morning. I had the best of intentions but, after getting less than 4 hours sleep, I felt I needed more rest. I intended to elliptical but the advantages of skipping that workout outweighed the disadvantages. It’s been a pretty poor week for running, but with this week’s schedule, I knew I’d miss a few days.

On the plus side, my mystery shoes arrived last night. I was too tired to even try them on when I got home but I will tonight. They’re the new Kinvara 3’s that I’ve been anticipating for a very long time. I loved the original Kinvaras but didn’t really like the 2’s. I’m hoping the third time’s the charm. My one minute assessment is that the K3 seems to be built more like the Mirage than the original Kinvara model. That may be okay. I went up 1/2 size and hopefully that will provide enough room in the toe-box to make for a perfect fit.

  1. It's the power of viral marketing. The reviews I post on Runner's Tech Review get read by thousands of people, many with purchase intent. It's a great way for the shoe companies to get early word out on new models.
