Well, it's time to get serious about the Chicago marathon, so I just ordered my gels, Brave Soldier lubricant, socks, etc. And these puppies came in today.
(the ones in front). I'll try them out on Saturday's first run - 8 miles in the morning - then eat/shower/sleep/eat/sleep until the 15k on Saturday night - I'll use my standby shoes (pictured in the rear). And then I will eat/drink/shower/sleep/repeat some more.
