3k: 9:25 | 2 Mile: 10:12 | 5k: 16:15 | 8k: 27:32

Mac is a sensational runner who just completed a great Cross Country season. He was a member of the 2010 CNU NCAA DIII South/Southeast Cross Country Region Championship competing team. Mac has been a member of the CNU Cross Country and Track and Field Teams for four seasons each. He just used up his athletic eligibility and will be greatly missed by his team at both practices and in competition.

Mac uses the Asics Piranha SP 3 and Adidas Supernova Glide 2. The Piranha's are racing flats and the Supernova's are running shoes.  

Mac has had the Asics Piranha SP 3 flats for a little over a year. He got them when the CNU Track and Field team ordered shoes last year. He uses these shoes for the 3k and the 5k. Mac said, "These are one of my favorites just because they're really light." These shoes weigh only 4.6 ounces and help to maximize traction. You can see from his PRs above that he has had some great races in his Piranha SP 3. Also, he prefers flats over spikes because they don't hurt his calfs and shins as bad. 

Adidas Supernova Glide 2 are Macs choice for trainers. He got his first pair about 2 1/2 years ago for $90 from a store called 3Sports in Short Pump. He got them just because he needed a new pair of running shoes. He says that these shoes feel snug on his feet when he runs. Also, the heel part has great cushioning so that his knees don't take as much pounding. These shoes have 3D TORSION® element for a better heel-to-forefoot transition. This is the feature that helped to eliminate some of the discomfort that he had felt with his previous pair of trainers.

Thanks Mac for giving me input on your shoes! Check out the shoes if you would like more information! Tomorrow is the 7th day of the project and the end of the first week! I appreciate everyones support in reading this blog!
