Timothy Olson Western States 100 Win 2013

Tim is just the coolest. This video is of Tim Olson’s WS100 run, shot by his parents-in-law. It contains some really nice shots that really show the course and what was going through Tim's head.

Loving Me Some New Running Shoes

I've worn the original Saucony Mirage for the last few years. I really like the simple construction and solid sole design so much I had even purchased an extra pair to keep on reserve for when the first pair wore out.

The the 2nd pair have a few miles on them now and I've been itching to get some new shoes.

I was pleased to see the Mirage3 looked to have some keen updates and it was available in Saucony's vibrant ViZiPRO orange - my new favorite color!

The shoes arrived in two days and on my first morning run, I just didn't want to stop. I put in eight miles and only came home because I had to go to work.

Next day, I was out the door early and put in another 6 miles before work in the new shoes.

I love them.

Great shoe, great cushion, simple design with enhancements that didn't destroy the integrity of the original. Great job Saucony.

I'm thinking about ordering another pair to keep on reserve.
