"If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four. If still boring, then eight. Then sixteen. Then thirty-two. Eventually one discovers that it is not boring at all." - John Cage

New Balance MT110v2 Review (July 2014 Release)

Having completely exhausted all 6 pairs of last year's version of the New Balance MT110 that I had in my cache (can you tell I loved that shoe!?), I was anxious about the fact that I had an upcoming 50k race, and no shoes to wear. The 2013 MT110 was sold out in my size everywhere in Canada, and the upcoming v2 2014 July release was a long wait away. 

Luckily, my awesome friends at Frontrunners (Vancouver Island's superlative running shops) were able to coerce their contacts at New Balance Canada into sending over a sample of the MT110v2 just in time for my race. I got in one 10k run in them, plenty to head into a long race with confidence in an untested shoe!

Review Caveat: This is likely a pre-production sample and may not represent the final product!

2013 In Review


I am not exactly what you would call a prolific blogger. As with the road to hell, I have the best of intentions, and the least of time... or rather I haven't made this blog a priority. I would like all that to change. I would also like financial excess, but hey. No promises.

2013 did not yield the running results I hoped, but all in all it was a good year of hobby jogging. I ended 2013 strong, and look forward to pursuing some big goals in 2014 that will be sure to challenge me. More on that in another post.

Before blogging in 2014, it felt wrong not to mention a whole year, so here is a quick look at 2013 in photos.
