I’m tightening up my race schedule for 2012. The goal will be Angeles Crest 100 (round two). Probably a couple 50 milers and maybe a 50k before that to prep. Nothing until late February for sure.
I’ve been enjoying “gasp” my new road shoes. What? I think this is the second pair of non-trail shoes I have owned in probably 18 years. Yeah. I know. I have tried some on over the years but nothing matched the comfort of my Inov8′s…until they started making road shoes!
I figure I need to get in miles wherever I can. In this season (dark by 5pm) I don’t get in as much trail during the week so hit the treadmill and streets. With about 75 miles on them I’ve really liked the shoes thus far. Light, great fit, flexible and not overbuilt, 6mm drop. For those interested, they are the Inov8 Road-x 233. There is a blog review on them here.
That’s all for now…check out the killer video below, watch it full screen. I don’t ski, but this is just awesome. The first couple minutes gives you a taste, then at 2:30 it opens up!
