I picked up a pair of Brooks Cascadia 3's this afternoon and took them out for a run at the Back Cove. I thought I was buying the Cascadia 4's, but it doesn't matter, as these fit me fine. What's strange is that I tried on a pair of the Cascadia 3's a year ago and they didn't seem to fit. However, today they felt perfect. Wierd.
They felt a little stiff at first, but I didn't really notice that after the first mile. From then on, they felt great. Very comfortable shoe and the run itself went well. The quick pace came easily and I wanted to keep it up for longer, but I reminded myself I'm in a taper and have a longer run planned for tomorrow. I hate tapering.
Ran 3.6 miles @ 6:50/mile pace.
