Shoe report

I picked a good week to wear worn-out shoes!

Last week I wore some older shoes for the Rocky Mountain NP trail runs, and that pretty much did them in. Or so I thought. Lots of trail running eventually creates holes in my Salomon XA Comps. I figured I could get one or two orienteering runs out of them before I ditched them and started over.

Well, after Monday I have determined that orienteering will trash them MUCH more than any trail running ever could. As long as they aren't causing problems (beyond sticks getting stuck in them occasionally), I going to run them into the ground.

A new pair vs. my current orienteering shoes:
