Pitted, so pitted
Went to a store today to try on some Hokas... tried the Bandi and some other model the sales guy suggested (not Clifton). Didn't really like either. Ended up with a pair of Glycerin 19s to replace my Glycerin 18s. 😂 $167 for the same thing I already have.

Was kinda bummed that they were the shoes thst felt best. Was hoping for some miracle shoe, but I guess I already have my ideal. 😕
Brooks are solid. Love them. Trying Saucony Endorphin Speeds next.

Nice, yeah I see them on FleetFeet's site for $150. The Cliftons look good too. I guess the Bondi is the ultra cushioned and the Clifton is slightly less. :dunno:
May have to go to a store and try them on.


im 6'1" and a stomper, my fatass needs the ultra cushion

:hmm: $200 on Amazon. Are they worth the 2x price over Asics or Brooks? 🤔
I have a couple pairs of Brooks and a pair of Asics rn. The former are on the softer side for roads and the other is harder for trails, but the Asics are way too springy and “gelly” I don’t like them at all. I thought I had a really soft and cushioned pair of shoes in my adrenaline GTS 20s until I tried on my Hoka Arahi 5s and it felt like I was running in bricks before by comparison. Only a 5 mm drop which is perfect for me and my physiology as well so it’s the perfect shoe basically. Still want to try a couple of the other newer brands as well but I’m stocking up on a few pairs of these, I think you can get them for under $160 now

I assume mentioned already but whats everyone using for hydration? Getting hot here and my small one ain't going to cut it. I have a backpack bladder which would be nice to use without the backpack.

I have a 20oz handheld I can use for 60-90 min runs. Longer than that, if it’s really hot, I’ll either do loops and have a refill bottle waiting for me, I’ll stash a bottle somewhere on my route, or I’ll plan a route that has a water stop somewhere.

Would prefer like a waist style holder but they're all bottle type. Ultimately, one that can hold the bladder. Wonder why thats not common.

I did 12 miles in the pouring rain and wind yesterday, going up and over that bridge 6x. Felt great. Then on my way back to my car, there’s a little ditch I had to go over and it had turned into a big puddle. So I jumped over it, my foot slipped when it came down and I fell on my ass and bent my left leg (with my already bad knee) under me :rofl::wtc:

Ran the bridge again this morning. It was hot and muggy as fuck, my legs were zapped.

about half way through the run I had to hop off the side of the bridge and take a shit. First time I’ve dumped in the middle of a run. Should have made sure to shit before I left home. It looked like a bear just dropped a pile. Holy hell.

I can’t stand carrying stuff. But the Nathan handheld bottles have worked well for me. I know what bottles you’re talking about. I just think even with a strap, it would be awkward to hold and carry.

It’s so humid here. It wasn’t even “hot” this morning, but the air is so thick. I ran for 55min and lost 3lbs. And no, I didn’t stop to take a 3lb dump in the middle of running.
If I can’t get out of the house before 9, it is absolutely awful. But didn’t we just get a “cool front”?
