My First Trail Running Shoe by Suman Silwal

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Trail Running, Video

When I first started to run, I was suggested that I MUST buy a good pair of running shoe. It is NO different in trail running. I took on the trail run in December 2011. Before I headed out to trails, I wanted to make sure that I purchase a correct trail running shoe. I use the ASICS 2100 series for my road running. I felt more comfortable using their Trail brand. I got the ASICS Gel-Enduro 7. It is working well for me. I have already logged 135 miles. I will be logging many more miles in coming months and years. I am enjoying every minutes of trail running. I am looking forward for my first 50k (all Trails at Oak Mt., Alabama) in March 31st 2012.
Happy Trail Running!

I have taken on the trail running since Dec 26th 2011. Slowly, I am falling in love with the trail running. I have done all major trails in the Metro Birmingham Area – Ruffner Mt., Red Mt. and Oak Mt. All of these trails are different; and it has its own challenges. As I am getting ready for my First Ultra marathon – the Oak Mt. 50k, I am also enjoying what nature has given us so close to home.
