Hey guys I have been keeping up with all the posts, love all of the information and encouragement. I have a question. Trying to decide which shoes to wear. I have a pair of asics that I love but the glue let go on a run I can shoe goo them. I have been running with my shox but was told they are notorious for causing shin splints. I appreciate any advice, even if it means purchasing a different shoe. I was supposed to run the TOT last year but majorly tore my gastronemis muscle in Jan and it still had'nt fully healed when I went back to work in October. I got the ok to start training in May. That leg still gives me fits but I can usully get it worked out around mile 3.
