Meet my new training partners


Asics DS Trainer XI

I picked them up while on vacation last week. When I tried them on at the store, they felt like slippers. I have never felt a more comfortable shoe. I tested them first on the treadmill: no problems; a little 3.5 km run outdoors: no problem; a medium-paced 11 km run outdoors: no problem; a nimble (26:36) 6k run with the man: no problem.

The shins, the calfs, the ankles, the knees, the hamstrings: no problems!

Can I get a Hallelujah!
