Just a quick post about my first run in my new Altra Lone Peak 2.0. After running in the One² for a week and having them blister the piss out of my toes, I sent them back and ordered up a fresh pair of trail shoes. I’m really sick of being a kept man, stuck on a treadmill. I was a little worried about taking a brand new pair of kicks on a 14 mile run, but my worries were quickly squashed. A mile into my run, my feet felt great, the traction was fantastic and I was able to settle into my first long run in a while. Hopefully I’ll feel the same after tomorrow’s 7 mile pace run. I’m still working through some ideas for the second part of my winter running monologue, but until then here are some pics of the new kicks.
