38 mile bike ride (2 hours 1 minute) followed by a 2 mile easy run in some new shoes Blake picked up for me. I wore the Sketchers Sonics this morning and really liked them. They are a nice improvement from the Sketchers Go Run that were a little sloppy on the feet. These seem a little more responsive while maintaining a large toe box, but are still way cushy and seemed to have a bit more heal lift. I could see myself running a marathon in them.

He also picked me up a pair Sketchers Ultras which look way big with a huge cushy sole, but only way 9.1 ounces.  I'll try those out tomorrow.

I just started running in the Sketcher's Go Runs (since Sophia convinced me). I actually LOVE them! I ran a 20 miler in them today without incident. I will see how my legs feel tomorrow though since they really are light with little support.

Maybe I will go check out the Sonics. I saw an ad for them recently and they look awesome! :-) Sophia also likes the Go Rides. Hmmm ...

Teena, I'm a big fan of the Sketcher running shoes. I have liked all the different ones I have tried. I wore the Ultras today for the first time. I have never had that much cushion in a shoe before. It felt weird at first, but as I got going I liked it and they are still really light. I do like the Sonics better though. They have some decent arch support and fit more like a racing flat, which I like.
