Running Shoes: Asics DS Trainer. My final run in my final pair of this model of shoes. I have gone through over 20 pairs of these in the last 5 years. But in the past two years the shoes have gotten heavier as other models of shoes have been getting lighter. They have also gotten stiffer and less comfortable. All but one of my marathons have been in this shoe and so as the run portion of all the triathlons I have done. Goodbye old friend.
