Last summer I won a trip to Cape Cod and an entry into the Falmouth Road Race (I still owe a race review for that... I'm sorry Jeanette!). To make it even better I was provided wicked awesome New Balance running gear for race day that included a pair of shoes, the New Balance 1080 v2. I love the shirt and I love the shorts, but I ran Falmouth in my trusty Saucony Mirage IIs. The 1080s sat in their box where they remained until I broke them out of their cardboard prison a few days ago.
I'm like the Great Emancipator of running shoes.
I did a test on a treadmill to see if I could
I'm not sure I'm willing to say it'd be a great idea for me to ride a shoe such as the 1080 v2 to double digit distances, but to get back at it I think they'll be fine.
It's a good thing I'm not too wedded to the idea of making the New Balance 1080 v2 my new go to shoe, because they're on clearance to make way for the 1080 v3, which looks like an entirely different shoe. My timing is always impeccable.
