Day 13: Asics GEL-DS Racer VI, Andrew Giordano

Mile: 4:52 | 5k: 17:47 | 8k: 28:15 | 10k: 38:36

Andrew got his Asics GEL-DS Racer VI's over the summer.  He was about to go on a run with one of his teammates, but he forgot his shoes at home.  His friend had them in his car and gave them to Andrew because they didn't fit.

It was a nice coincidence because Andrew was looking to start moving to lightweight shoes because of the barefoot running craze that the CNU distance team had gone through the previous Outdoor season.  He put the GEL-DS Racer's on and he said, "they felt like clouds on my feet."  They have never given him any injuries or anything of that nature.

The key features that he enjoys about them are that they are lightweight (technically flats) and super comfortable.  They run a little small, so he got them a 1/2 to 1 full size bigger than his normal training shoe.  Andrew runs 60-70 miles a week in them and wears them for everything; recovery, progressive, long runs and track and hill workouts.

He said, "this is by far my favorite shoe that I have ever put on."  Thanks for your input Andrew!!
