Looking for advice: I just got new Brooks Adrenaline 13s. I've been running in the 12s. I tried them out on Saturday for a long run, and they seemed good--certainly better than my broken-down 12s. But when I went on a short run yesterday, they were weird on my feet. There was a spot on my heel that felt pushed on; my feet felt heavy; and I felt like my right leg was "twisting" in. But, of course it was kind of slick and slushy, so I may have been running with a weird gait. I don't know what to do, because none of the other shoes I tried on in the store felt better than these.

My thoughts: Give them another try on my run on Thursday (warm rain will have cleared out the slush). Depending, I can try them one last time on Saturday's long run. Then I'd have to make the decision if I want to take them back on Sunday. (The store has a 15-day policy. Depending on how worn they think they are, it will be full refund or store credit.) I can probably still get a pair of 12s online. What do you think I should do? What should I look for when I am trying these in the next two runs?? Thoughts?

•8 GU Original Gels
•6 Roctane Gels
•4 Chomps Single Serve packets
•2 Roctane Ultra Endurance Drink packets
•4 Electrolyte Tablets Single Serve packets
•1 Electrolyte Brew Pack
•1 Recovery Pack
It does have a disclaimer that it might not be *exactly* as described, but it should be close to this mix.
Thanks for sharing. Just placed an order too.

Starting to STRESS out just a bit. What do you guys recommend ???

Thanks
I just talked to them today and you can pick them up at will call. I did it one year for the expedition everest race. Worked fine! Although I do miss having room key and tickets all on one thing. Oh well, worth it to save lots of $$:-)

I saw this on FB and ordered it today. That's a pretty awesome deal, as at the running store I get my fuel at, those would cost $1.50-$3 each.

We will be at Orlando on Friday evening, so we will have to wait until Saturday to go to the expo. I really want to do some shopping at the expo but I'm afraid that only the random thinks will be left. How has it been the other years??? Does the expo sell out on Saturday? We are planning on being there in the morning when it opens...

You should be fine with general merch on Saturday. The sell out stuff is usually the Dooney's, sometimes the pins, and the runDisney New Balance shoes will go fast...though they are supposed to have an allotment of those for both days. Also, with the new option to pre order the Dooney's, there's a good chance there will still be some available on Saturday...that was the case at the Tink expo a couple of weeks ago.

I'd give them at least one more "normal" run, if you have until Sunday you have time. I loved my Adrenalines but needed a different type shoe after my last knee surgery. I hope it was just yucky weather that made them feel off!

You can order them via phone and pick them up at any of the parks will call. They to me over the phone last year that I could also get them at my hotel, but that was incorrect.

My experience thus far has been that if a shoe doesn't feel perfect from the start, it probably won't ever. Sometimes they feel perfect at the start and later feel less so, but any shoe that didn't feel good in the first few runs never got better. I say get some 12s if you can and see if that makes a difference, then go from there.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And today, on As the Running Shoe Turns...

So much for my "prefect" Brooks Ghosts - hellooo shin splints. The shoes really are perfect in every other way, but any time I go into a higher heel, it's instant shin splints. Doesn't seem to matter than I'm a mid-foot striker; if there's a big heel, forget it. Out of total desperation, I tried the Hoka One One Bondi 2, even - good grief, but they're ugly! Figured if ultra-marathoners swear by them to reduce muscle fatigue and joint pain, they'd be great... nope. The sole is awesome, but the shoe's not shaped for my foot.

I guess I'm back to my Pure Flows and I'll just have to live with the joint pain from pounding out double-digit miles. But first, I have to make this gawdawful pain in my left shin go away - any suggestions? I'm icing a few times a day, massaging my too-tight calf, wearing compression sleeves... anything else I can do? I couldn't even walk 5 minutes yesterday; today's run isn't looking good.
