I didn't expect much from the Asics DS Racer, and while its cushioning is better than I anticipated, overall I was still disappointed. I’ve analyzed the DS Racer and compared it to the Asics Hyper Speed, NB RC5000, Hoka Clifton, Saucony Kinvara and the Asics GT 2000. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Asics_Gel_DS_Racer

I like the Pearl Izumi EM Road N0 as a lightweight and comfortable running shoe, but it’s not quite as good as the best in its category. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Pearl_Izumi_EM_Road_N0

That is a good looking shoe.

The New Balance RC5000 is one of the most inspiring shoes I've tested, providing just enough cushioning to enable the fastest paces. If you're an efficient runner that wants to go faster, this 3oz/100g shoe is worth trying out. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/New_Balance_RC5000

Only 234 miles in February, but 145 of them were good enough that the overall result is some great training. More at http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Training_Macrolog

I've updated my article on Morton's neuroma based on a review of the available research. I've included more details on other problems that have similar symptoms, as well as the available treatments. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Mortons_Neuroma

I've finished a major update to my recommendations on running lights. I've added new lights and taken pictures to show their beams at night. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Best_Running_Lights

The On Cloudracer looks weird, but its novel cushioning system works better than I expected. I’m not convinced it’s better than traditional foam, but it’s not the dismal failure so many other innovative approaches have been. I’ve included a review of the research On Running have performed, as well as my usual analysis, including a comparison with the Hyper Speed, RC5000, Clifton, PureConnect, and GT 2000. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/On_Cloudracer

The Brooks Transcend 2 is a good update, providing softer cushioning and a comfortable shoe, but its excessive weight is a problem. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Brooks_Transcend

Sorry to hear that +Kevin Andrew
Otherwise, you seem to do just fine.

I don't know much about shoes, although I ran pretty much in the past.
I never gave importance to the shoes as much as I gave to workouts.
Mostly because I run almost entirely on soft terrain.

This winter I begun to wear shoes with cushioning system, I don't even know their brand.
It's pretty cool and soft with my legs.
Now I wonder if there are no reversed effects.
In my understanding, the cushioning system is reducing the shock when running. But for people with poor muscle strength or maybe overweighted, the cushioning system might absorb the shock when landing on the ground, but due to elasticity of the sole, the shock is sent back in the legs (probably in a softer, slower form) and causes injuries in joint, usually.

I'm not sure about this theory, is just a thought.

I've updated my review of the Hoka Stinson for the latest version, the Stinson Lite, which has made the Stinson remarkably similar to the Bondi. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Hoka_Stinson

You have your own wiki? That's awesome!

If you're concerned about the recent study that suggests running more or faster might not be optimal for health, this is a good article that shows the deep flaws in the study. There are other articles linked from this one that are also worth reading on the topic. http://www.runnersworld.com/health/how-to-interpret-the-latest-excessive-running-news-reports

January was ugly for me; 236 miles was my lowest in over 3 years. Having run 5,200 miles last year, I thought I was in good shape, but it turns out that training was less valuable than I’d have hoped. Here’s what happened: http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Training_Macrolog

Indeed, the wiki style is cool.

I read somewhere on the website about carrying the phone armband.
Have you thought about carrying it in a belt?
