  • A very good list and all my favourite books are there :)The books that have influenced my training the most is Phil Maffetones (love MAF!) and Tim Noakes and on the technique and shoe side I love Peters book Tread Lightly.Born to Run would also have…
  • Think I will skip the GoRun 3 because of the 8 mm drop and stick to my GoRun 2’s. Think I will loose some comfort by removing the insole.  I really don’t understand why they change the drop now that they have the Ultra with the 8 mm drop. Hope they …
  • Thx for all your feedback :) I ended up buying the Road Glove 2 and can't wait to test it! If it's too minimal, I will just use it to train technice on my short runs (and maybe buy a pair of Bare Access for the longer runs ;-) ), but my goal is to m…
  • Great review Bryan - you should make your own blog ;-)  My biggest concern is, that the BA2 got too much cushioning, as I tend to land a bit harder, when there's much cushioning in a shoe.On the other side there could be too little cushioning in the…
  • The problem with yaktrax is that you cant use them on plain asphalt but only on snow or ice. Normally when you run on asphalt in the winter theres sections with no ice or snow. I just use my trail shoes in the winter (live in Denmark btw :) ) - righ…
  • Have you tried the Skechers GoRuns? Light weight, flexible and enough cushioning for a marathon if you ask me. You can probably get them on discount. I have been setting pr's in my latest marathons and ½-marathons using the skechers so I can highly …
  • The longest run I had was a 13 miler in the Go Runs and that went pretty well. But then again there can be a long way from 13 to 26 miles :P My marathon is in a few weeks, so I dont have time for another long run before then, so I was just wondering…
  • The Kinvara is much more beefy than the Gorun 2's, Fastwitch and Virrata so I won't compare these models. I use the Kinvara for my long runs, marathons and ultras because of the great cushioning and then use the lighter shoes (like the GoRuns or Fas…
  • In general I don’t think there’s a lot of describtion about the different Sketchers models on their website – its very difficult to overview the different models. Like whats the difference between the Ride, Gobionic, Ultra, Ride etc. etc. 
  • I live in Europe so I cant buy from running warehouse :( Hopefully it will soon be discounted in Europe as well :)
  • Sounds like I should give the Kinvaras a try then :) Have been a huge fan of Saucony but the Mirage 2 didn't impress me much. Its too stiff, the rubber outsole looks a bit cheap and I question the durability.The Mirgae 3 looks interesting though and…
  • Threadhijack: Some of you mention both the Brooks Pure Flow and Saucony Mirage as a good marathon shoe. I got both shoes and love them but can't decide which one to choose for my next marathon - any inputs? I also live in Europe and theres a lot of …
  • I'm a big fan of the Triumph 9 and use it in my rotation for the long training runs (20-30 km). It's pretty light, have a 8 mm drop and have a superb cushioning. When you have adjusted to the lower drop you can bring in some lighter shoes in your ro…
  • The biggest problem I got with the Kinvaras is the price in Europe :)Its much more expensive than the Mirage 2 (which is 30-40% cheaper) even though its almost the same shoe. The Triumph 9 is also much cheaper.   
  • How is the  cushion in the GoRun 2 compared to the Kinvaras 3 or Mirage 2 for that matter? According to Runners World shoe lab theres almost no cushion in them.
