Dino ran with me today. Even though I had so much to do, it was so nice out I didn't want to miss the day. It was springlike and we took it easy and just enjoyed the weather and easy pace going just long enough to warm up without pushing it too much. Of course Dino did a little sprint at the end which always amazes me. I try but going uphill I just can't seem to muster the strength.
I tried out my new Asics 1120s that I got on sale. It feels so good to put a shoe on and just have it feel right on your foot. These are definitely firmer in the sole than my Kayano XIIIs, but for a training shoe I think they will be fine. I'll save the XIIIs for the really long distances.
While I am planning on running the Vancouver marathon, Dino suggested that I try the half marathon distance for that event instead of the full. I'm considering it.
