Hi Goodmar! Thanks for letting me know about the new Spark team. I've joined! I'm sorry to hear about your injury. Please return to running with caution. I suffered a hip fracture after I ran the Boston a few years ago. It took me 6 months before I could even put full weight on it without pain. I understand it's hard to scale back when you love running.

JADE_JASMINE - I started a Flying Pig Marathon Spark team. I am undecided about whether or not I'm running the half or the full due to injury (had hip arthroscopy in November). I am currently not allowed to run at all - so I'm walking. Hopefully on Jan. 25, my doc will let me run. The Flying Pig is a great marathon - the "real hill" is at the beginning (from miles 5-8), the rest is fairly flat.

Good to hear about the shoes. I currently have Brooks Dyads, but LOVE Sauconys....

The Joy is in the Journey!

The shoes are still working well for me. The extra ankle stability is really nice.

Thanks for the comments everyone. My legs are short (I'm only about 5'2"), but they've served me well. I'm starting out my race season with the Flying Pig Marathon on May 2nd, so I have to come out of my off season a bit earlier to be ready in time. My marathon PR is 3:32. I'm hoping for a new PR. I'd love to go sub 3:20 someday.

Happy Holidays everyone!

That's great!

Yeah, it's funny when you say "easy 7.55 pace" to me, that's an all out effort, LOL!

Long run done at an easy 7:45-7:55 min/mile pace. The shoes are amazing. No blisters, and my feet were warm the whole time!

i like that integrated gaiter thing. reminds me of the Salomon SLab XA Pro 3.

so, a long run in new shoes? if you do happen to get a blister, chalk it up to the shoes not being broken in yet!

good luck

Okay, last night I bought the new Saucony Progrid Razor shoes. Tomorrow morning (Saturday), I have my first long run outside with my marathon training group. Hopefully, they'll be what I've been praying for.

I live in the Buffalo/Niagara region of western NY state (a.k.a. the snowbelt of the northeast). For years, I've been searching for shoes that could stand up to the type of winter conditions that we have around here. All I was left with was wet, freezing feet and a heck of a lot of blisters. The new Progrid Razor is designed to provide exceptional traction and be completely waterproof.

I'll post my thoughts on this shoe after my run tomorrow morning. Hopefully, this will help other winter runners out there.

Here's the link for the shoe:
