There is a new woman in my life

As I await my fate about whether or not I have a job, there have been a few newsy items going on in my life.

I am seeing a new girl. Ok. Ok. It's not what you think. Most of the Team Rogue runners see the same massage therapist and I decided to see her too last week. She damn near had me in tears as she twisted and mashed on my quads and hamstrings. I told her about my sore soleus/gastroc (that's calf muscle for those of you who don't know). She prescribed a lot of stretching for me and said I should be okay in time for the Oct. 4 marathon in Portland.

My feet keep fighting my shoes. I wear the Brooks Adrenalines. Worn them during every marathon and for most of my running career. They've been perfect for my feet, which slightly overpronate. But the more miles I have been running, the more efficient I am becoming. Problem is, the Adrenalines continue to their job, pushing my feet outward even though they wanna point inward. The result is my shoes really are wearing a lot on the outsides. A whole lot. Even my new massage therapist noticed that most of the trauma in my legs is located on the lower, outside part.

So, after Saturday's 14-mile run (in the rain no-less), I decided to buy a new shoe: The Mizuno Wave Inspire 5. It is in the same class as the Brooks Adrenaline in terms of the stability/cushion aspect, but it is not so stiff that my legs can't do what they want to do. I ran in the Mizuno's Sunday and Monday and will also run in them during the last long run leading up to the Portland Marathon. I need to know how they hold up on a 20-miler. If things go well, then I'll wear the shoes for my marathon. If not, I can always go back to the Adrenalines.

the subject certainly got my attention. Hopefully you will hear from the other woman, the one who interviewed you. When you get the job, you can write about that awesome woman in your life
