I’m a Liar with No Will Power

There I was in the beginning of November ready to contain my kicks buying bender. I had everything I needed kicks-wise with my latest addition of a Roshe Run. I needed no more kicks for 2012. Then Black Friday came. Nike online features a clearance section as always, but couple that discount with an additional […]

I Am Nicholas Goda??

Apparently in the realm of Nike+, I’m known as Nicholas Goda. But then again, so are a few other runners. After upgrading the Nike+ Running iOS app to version 4.0, my profile quietly messed up. While my nickname, icon/avatar, and email address remained the same, I took on the running identity of Nicholas Goda. I’m […]

Nike Zoom Structure Is For Me

I can’t deny it. Nike’s Structure line of running shoes is for me. No matter what other Nikes I experiment with, I always come back to the Structure. I used to run in the Moto but moved up to the more supportive Structure line. I’ve had the 12, the 14, and recently, picked up the […]

Did I Not Blog the LunarEclipse?

Looks like I completely missed blogging about my Nike LunarEclipse+ 2 running shoes. I got them in March after reading rave reviews online. Sadly, these just ain’t for me. They do feel hella good, but there isn’t enough support for my fallen arches. I tried changing up my running style, using the balls of my […]

Nike Zoom Structure Triax 14+

Ready to Run

Loving my Zappos-bought Nike Zoom Structure Triax+, the 14th edition of this stability running shoe. I’ve owned and run in a few Triax over the years so my feet were accustomed to the shoes’ shape and feel. Right out of the box, I could comfortably run in them without needing a break in period. This […]

Zappos Powered by Service

It’s 2011, and only now have I made my first purchase on Zappos.com. Was in the market to replace worn out running shoes and took a look at Nike.com and Footlocker.com. Then I went to Zappos and found the same shoe, the Nike Zoom Structure Triax 14 with no tax and free shipping. So I […]

I Slowed Down in 2010

According to Nike+, I slowed down in 2010.  For the year, I ran 179 miles but 286 in 2009. Here’s a comparison between 2009 and 2010. What’s with the slowdown? A look at my monthly breakdown of runs might help. Now I remember. In April and May, I had some medical work done so I […]

Looking for an iPod Touch 2G Armband

Since I seriously think my customized iPod Nano is really, really zapped, I’m looking at using an iPod Touch, 2nd generation, during my runs. The Touch is much bigger than the Nano, and it does support the Nike+ running sensor and the new Nike+ GPS app (sans the GPS part for a Touch). Now I […]

I’m Blue!

My Nike+ system just let me know that I’m blue, the blue running level that is. I’ve surpassed 620 miles of running, going from level green to level blue. Next up is level purple at 1553(!) miles then level black at over 3107 miles. Here’s the movie clip that greeted me when signing into Nike+ […]

First Run in Awhile

It’s been close to 5 weeks since I last ran so who knew what this first run would be like. According to Nike+, I ran 2.28 miles in 22 minutes and 23 seconds (that’s 9’48” per mile) and used my Power Song on the home stretch. Felt pretty good though the legs are little wobbly […]

Did Perseus Have Blistered Feet?

Is that how Perseus felt riding atop the winged Pegasus? I surely doubt it, but for me, I am getting blisters from running in my new Nike Air Pegasus 26+ shoes. I’m hoping this is just part of the break in process. With the 26th model, the Pegasus line has a long history of running, […]

Look for New Running Shoes

Look for New Running Shoes

After 72 runs and 209 miles, I think it’s time to replace my Nike Structure Triax+ 12 running shoes.  These shoes were great but have recently started to feel soft and spongy like it’s not providing firm support or adequate cushioning.  Maybe I’ll get another pair. Or maybe I’ll take a look at the Lunarglides […]
