i stopped by wasatch running after work to check out their big sale. and i got some deals!!! i was surprised to see that they sell netwons. i wanted to get another pair but they didn't have the women's distance racer in stock, only the stability and trainer models. i like the racer, so i decided to go with something new. i bought some (gasp) sauconys. grid fastwitch 3s. nice and lightweight but felt more stable than some of the other racers i tried on. i was debating with the asics hyperspeeds, but they just felt too light for marathon racing. so we'll see how the sauconys work out; i have never had a pair before but they were MUCH cheaper than newtons. :)
*ALSO* i asked mr. salesman about some warm running gloves and he told me about mizuno's breathe thermo run gloves. he swears it's the only thing that works for him. i figured he was probably just trying to make a sale, but they were only 10 bucks so i bought them and i will give them a test tomorrow morning. they look like your everyday cheap stretchy gloves, but the inside apparently has special material that wicks away sweat and reabsorbs it in the form of heat, aka "exothermal properties". they also neutralize sweat to "keep the skin soft" oooooh. so fancy.
so look for me on the roads tomorrow; i'll be all decked-out.
