Well my new Keens came this week and I was very anxious to give them a try. I got a short walk on Thursday and they felt good but needed to test them more. This morning I set our early to beat the forecast bad weather and test the shoes. I ended up doing 10.1 Miles and my feet still felt pretty good at the end of the walk. I had originally set out to do about 7 miles but since the rain was holding off I decided to push it and try for a little more. The last 3 miles ended up being a little soggy since there was a light drizzle for that time. Still I felt good at the end of the walk and am glad I pushed it. I won’t be able to get any long walks in next week since I am on call and I will be out of town for a wedding the week after so I wanted to get at least one 10 mile walk in early this year. I hope to do 15 miles one of the days during the Memorial Day weekend.
