Saucony’s secret news is leaking out!

Today’s run (treadmill): 25 minutes

The cat seems to be out of the bag in terms of the “top secret” news that Saucony plans to share. Via re-tweets on Saucony’s Twitter feed and through blogs I follow, it seems like the running shoe stork is dropping off boxes of the pre-market Kinvara 3 to bloggers and reviewers like me. This is a shoe I’ve been anxiously anticipating.

After reading people’s first impressions, I’m even more excited to receive my pair. I’m also worried that something got botched up and my shoes won’t ever reach me. In the meantime, I continue to appreciate the feel and responsiveness of my new Spira Stinger XLT’s that I wore on today’s run. It was my third workout with the XLT’s and the second on the treadmill (raining this morning). I hope to take them out on a long base run tomorrow.

So as I wait for the Kinvaras to arrive, I’ll be happy to run with the XLT’s. I’m really curious to see if the Wavespring technology delivers any extra support when I face that last big hill at the end of mile 8.

What’s in the box will make me 15 seconds faster

Mysteries a-foot

There’s a box waiting for me at home that contains a pair of running shoes. These shoes are different from any others that I own. The manufacturer claims that I’ll see a 15 second per mile improvement over my regular trainers. Unless it’s raining, I will be testing that theory tomorrow morning. I plan to do a full writeup on Runner’s Tech Review once I’ve had a chance to evaluate them fully.

I’m also waiting for a pair of mystery running shoes that have not yet arrived. I don’t know when to expect them. All I know is that one of my favorite shoe companies (Saucony) recently sent me a note saying they had “top secret” news and asked for my size. What could be better than having some brand new performance tech-y shoes waiting at home? How about knowing that a secret pair of running shoes are also coming? Stay tuned, all will be revealed…
