The thing is, so far, these are all around really comfortable running shoes! When I was trying on pair after pair of shoes at the store, I asked the sales girl about the model - Nike Vomero 6. I'm told this is the top of the line Nike running shoe. She was wearing them. The first thing she said was that these are her very favorite running shoes of all time. The down side...they are at the high end of price at $130 and they wear out quickly. She put 3 or 4 months at 20 miles a week on them and the bottoms were already worn half way up the treads.

On a totally different topic, the Iceman Cometh Challenge was this past weekend. I did not ride in the race this year, but I think I did benefit from the event. I went riding on Saturday at Luton Park and it was half as busy as I expected on a sunny, fall day. I'm thinking that most of the area mountain bike riders were up in Traverse City for the Iceman. I have no proof, but that's the story I'm going with.
It was a great ride, and I hope we have several more weekends of dry weather before the snow comes. I want to get some more riding in now that the marathon is over. After that, I'm looking forward to some snowshoeing again this year!
Finally, I have to give a shout out to my friends Cat and Melissa who ran the Hot Chocolate Race in Chicago this weekend. They are just too cute not to share in their chocolate themed costumes. I will have to do this next year!
