i'm amazed at how many shoe reviews contain statements like "i ran 30 seconds per mile faster" or "i took 10 minutes off my time for 10 miles". these statements aren't just about running faster, but significantly faster, on the first run with a new pair of shoes.
i wonder what it is that causes this to happen? surely it's mental...
maybe we here at rrrs should invent some token disposable "per run" add-on to shoes that will tap into that mental fuel tank and allow people to harness it more regularly?
strapping on a new pair of shoes myself for tonight's run... will i be faster?
