I had one of those “is this day ever going to end?!” Fridays last week. I was at Reagan National waiting for my flight back to Chi for a solid 6 hours. My client meeting ended early and there were at least 20 listed stand-by for all the earlier flight options. All I wanted to do was to go home. After a much needed brew with a coworker, I boarded the plane and 2 hours later I was home…. At 12:30 AM. On a FRIDAY! Needless to say, I was exhausted and couldn’t wait to crawl into bed.
The first thing I saw when I arrived home was a box shipped from Saucony. It was packed full of goodies and one very special pair of shoes. I’m a huge fan (maybe that’s understating it) of Saucony Kinvaras and their latest version didn’t WOW me. Thankfully, the brand took notice and tracked down a pair of the K2s for me anyway. It’s a special pair for me because it’s the exact same color and version I bought when I started to seriously dedicate my time to running last year. I even remember wearing them for one of my first treadmill tempos in February when it was probably 10 degrees outside. Looking forward to logging some miles on these bad boys in the next month, with just a few short weeks until Twin Cities!
