But it's time to move on.
A lot has changed since I bought my Kayanos -- I've dropped about 30 pounds, my running form has shaped up and my stability has improved tenfold.
I got the Kayano at Fleet Feet, but this time I went to see Tim at Star Power Running in Newark. I was in there in September to buy my FuelBelt and he really knew his stuff.
He's a fan of the barefoot running movement -- Vibrams Five Fingers and whatnot. It's something I'm intrigued by but not ready to try yet. Anyway, Tim immediately said the Kayano was "too much shoe" for me and I tried on some lighter pairs.
The first few -- don't know which models they were, exactly, had various issues. I tried a Brooks and a couple pairs of Sauconys. I finally settled on the Mizuno Precision -- kind of in the middle ground in terms of weight but felt about right.
I liked Star Power Running. It's just a little store inside the Newark Advantage Club, but the owner knows what he's doing.
We'll see how it works out!!
