NEW SHOES TO HELP YOU RACE MORE
If your Summer Challenge is to race more or get FASTER, check out these racing shoes In the article by Brian Metzler "Flat Out Fast: 6 New Speedy Shoes For Summer", in Competitor.com. It is a splurge to make such a purchase, to be sure, but the bright color of some shoes and the lightness of feel of all (compared to your everyday trainers) can be a real boost. I had a pair several years ago and I felt really fast in them. I loved their neon yellow color! The biggest surprise to me is the model released by Hoka OneOne, the Tracer, which are NOT maximalist shoes (#3). Since you only wear this kind of shoe on race day they should easily last into the late fall and can be ready to lace up for spring 2017 races too!
