New(sorta) Toys

I got one new toy and another thats not so new but I haven't talked about yet.

First..the not so new. My old Nike shoes which had served me well for 3 years were finally starting to give out. I found this very distressing because they were super comfortable and all that stuff. Since Nike had quit making shoes and these were no longer available I had to go looking.

Enter the Adidas Marathon.

They were on sale and I'd read some pretty good things about them so I figured I'd give them a shot. They took about a month to break in but I have to say..I'm really liking them. Stiff enough and pretty damn comfortable.

The next toy was much more recent. My old helmet was about 4.5 years old. While it hadn't suffered any real nasty impacts the pads and such were shot and I figured it was time for a replacment. I was going to get another Giro Havoc but I found myself being more and more drawn toward the Giro Hex. It's a bit heavier but it seems to ventilate even better and fits my large,round head much better.

Gotta love the Army green color and semi-macho(as macho as any piece of bike clothing can be) styling. I'm loving it.

Hope everybody has a great day and weekend. Later folks.

Sorry for the stupid pic placement but I haven't taken the time to figure out how to move this stuff around on here.
