First Run in the Merrell Bare Access

Easy fiver on tap today. Felt a little out of sync, most likely due to a big lunch. Nothing bad though.

It was also my first run in a new pair of Merrell Bare Access shoe. I guess they'll serve okay for some occasional short/medium road runs. They're as light as my racing flats (5.6 ounces) but my Brooks Mach 13s have a more durable rock plate. I stepped on a marble-sized rock during the run today and felt it more than I would have liked. I'd rather not worry about such things if I don't have to.

Ran 5.0 miles @ 7:41/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Mid 60s, humid, breezy.
Merrell Bare Access, shorts, short sleeved shirt, cap.
