new kicks

Posted in motivation, shoes with tags , on March 25, 2009 by afuntanilla

These are my newest and my very first ever pair of PEARL IZUMI shoes. The “Streak” is sweet and 6.9oz. VERY light. Wore them out tonight to dinner and cannot wait to wear ’em for a run. Maybe even tomorrow morning before work if i can get my act together. 

“If you ran without sacrifice, congratulations. you just jogged. running hurts. It always has. Woolly mammoths didn’t just roll over onto a plate and serve themselves up to prehistoric man with fries and a shake. they had to be caught – and running down woolly mammoths was a bitch. guess what? running is still a bitch. but, one with a purpose. it teaches us that good things do not come easy. it teaches us that we are capable of more than we think. it teaches us that hard work will be rewarded and laziness will be punished. don’t expect to learn those life lessons from running’s shiftless stepchild, jogging. next time you suffer on the roads or trails, suffer proudly. it means you run like an animal.” -Pearl Izumi
