AVIA!!! I'm like a little girl at Christmas here!

I met the Avia people in Kona at the Sports Medicine Conference. I told them all about my muscle strain that had been nagging me. They looked at my gait and set me up with an awesome pair of their Avi Light II trainers and made some suggestions for insoles. Since then I've been running pain-free and have continued talking to them. Today I got the most awesome care package in the mail. I'm pretty sure I'm the luckiest girl in the world!

Pictured here is pretty much their whole line of shoes for slight pronators. Bottom left are my current shoes, the Avi Lite II. They are a lightweight neutral trainer with light motion control. Love them so far. Upper left is a trail shoe. Water proof with a stiff base for running on rugged trails. Top right is their Avi Lite Guide. This is a step up in the motion control department but without the huge heal/toe height difference of the average motion control runner. And bottom right is the shoe to play in. Their racing flat. It feels like you're running barefoot. Can't get these things on and NOT go fast. Can't wait to try everything!

And of course I had to try on the new clothes!

Between Timex and Avia, I am set for 2009. But I'm afraid with all this awesome stuff I'm jinxing myself to some sort of clumsy disaster like another broken patella. No running with ipods this year!

A HUGE, HUGE thanks to Avia AND Team Timex! I feel like a little kid again.

I'm happy to announce that I have removed the Jerky McJerkface status from Rach, that belonged to her for so long.
Bad news is that you have taken it over.

Way to go lady... you rock! Ipod - bad.

Brian said...

Tell them I have strained achilles. Can I just get a race entry paid?

Being a 'grown-up' sucks. Being a kid for life rules!

Doug said...

You got the pro hook up now! Even if you are not fast, you at least LOOK fast :).
