Keflezighi's Skechers

So.  The 36-year-old Meb Keflezighi won the Olympic marathon trials in Houston today, with a personal best time of 2:09:08.

First reaction: He's 36 and still setting personal bests?  So what's my excuse again?

Second reaction: Maybe it was the shoes.  Figure out what shoes he was wearing.  Wait . . . he was wearing the new Skechers GoRun?  Really?

OK, the dude could run fast in anything.  But I'm intrigued.  Perhaps not yet intrigued enough to pay $80.  But if anyone wants to loan us a test pair . . . .
