Rejuvenating Trail Run

After yesterday's craptastic run, today was most welcome. Hit the trails behind my house and got in a very pleasant run. The morning calm combined with the chilly air provided an inviting ambience that was really enjoyable. Good mix of technical trails and fire roads, but still kept the pace slow on the easier sections.

Really enjoying the shoes I'm testing out for a certain company. I think it's safe to say they are pretty similar to the New Balance Minimus trail shoes (but no, it's not them). I feel more comfortable with the protection they provide compared to the Vibram Five Fingers, but they still maintain a tremendous amount of flexibility and a low profile. Love the fit also. Great product.

Ran 7.7 miles @ 9:03/mile pace.
Trails and fire roads.
Very hilly.
Upper 20s to around 30, sunny.
X-shoes, long pants, windbreaker, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.

You keep giving hints and we will be able to figure out who's shoes you are testing. I was thinking about the NB minimalist in march but am open to suggestions

I like calm and chilly any day over a blustery day. Nice run!
