You shall be my savior from myself


Like a small child, I've resorted to bribery.  While perusing the goods at the NYCM expo on Friday, I had no real intention to make any purchases.  I certainly didn't need any gear of the clothing variety but when strolling by the Brooks Running booth I was reminded that I'd intended to make a stop at Big River Running while in St. Louis to check out the new PureProject line; free time in STL expired quickly and soon enough I was flying back East.  Back to Friday night and I was slipping my sweaty & poorly polished toes into both the PureFlow and PureCadence models; I've never run in Brooks before but I know there are several models that closely resemble my stand-by Asics Nimbus.   And more importantly I needed a spark ... anything really to force myself back into some semblance of a running schedule.   I'm tired of posting about my laziness and lack of motivation and lack of commitment so with this post I hereby shut my pie hole.   Bought the PureFlows although I liked the colors of the PureCadence more and, if these work out well, may go for the dude's version of the Flow ...  because we all know how I feel about green.

P . O . W. E. R

eta:  I'm a big, fat liar.  I have worn Brooks, my trail shoes are Cascadias.  D'uh

I just invested in the Brooks Pure Connect and they are hands down the best running shoe I've ever owned.

I'm sad we will miss each other in Saint Louis! Maybe next time! Let me know what you think of the PureFlows!!! I purchased the PureConnects a few weeks ago and LOVE them. I can't get enough of the heel or arch support--l.o.v.e.

Cool shoes. I like the ones you bought more than the green ones, though. And I like green just fine. But the black ones are fierce!

Yay! You got them! I LOVED them -- can't wait to get a pair myself. I *think* the new run is due out in February -- maybe the green will take over the women's line!
(p.s. -- since you're a Nimbus wearer, you would't want the Cadence. It's got a solid post for over-pronation.)
