I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a runner. Before this I just thought I’d run in the winter when cycling was tough in Maine. Now I enjoy running & don’t want it to fade away when spring arrives. (This year’s goals include a few duathlons.) Oh but my trusty Newton Terra Momentus trail shoes have 700 miles on them! I really consider myself a fore-midfoot striker but the reality may be different from the heel wear seen above. Regardless, Mama needs new shoes!
I love running trails but will be racing & training on pavement also. Being a gear head, I see the need for three pairs of running shoes. (or please clue me in to the one do-it-all running shoe!) A trail shoe (I’ll keep the Newton Terra Momentus shoes for a while more), a road trainer, & a racing shoe. I really like my Newtons & don’t feel like casting around through the other brands. (New Balance’s Minimus line and new WT110’s is intriguing though for a trail shoe replacement.) So I just took a chance on some Newton Gravity shoes on eBay. A gamble, but potentially my road trainers. For a racing shoe I want to try the Newton MV2. The bottom line: these shoes are friggin’ expensive. Thus the eBay gamble & keeping the Terra Momentus for trails exclusively.
