Road running 42:00  4.7 mi (8:56 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 2
GSFC perimeter road.
First run on a new pair of shoes. The Brooks Adrenaline GTS-11's I've been running in for the past year are the best shoes I can remember owning. I didn't like the GTS-12 version this year. The fit isn't as good. I took home a pair of Asics GT-2170s, but when I compared them to my old shoes, they looked so much bigger that I was convinced I needed a half-size smaller. Plus they weigh more than the Adrenalines, and feel clunkier. So I took them back, and this time the guy found a pair of last year's Adrenalines, on sale for $69. So I gladly bought them, and another spare pair as well. So here's the question: should I put them both in service now and alternate between them, or save one for six months and make the switch then?
Butterflies this run:
Silver-spotted skipper (Epargyreus clarus) first of season, and pretty early
Tiger swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) been seeing these for a couple of weeks.
