Nick Beer 10km Race and New Trainers

These trainers arrived on my doorstep on Friday from These are Under Armour
Mens Speedform Turbulence Running Shoes. I needed a pair of road trainers. These are my first Under Armour running shoes. I have a lot of this brands gear now and I like the quality. However it must look like Under Armour are sponsoring slightly overweight middle age men when people see me out training.

Anyway this weekend was the 25th anniversary of the Nick Beer 10km road race around the Great Orme in North Wales. So this was a perfect opportunity to try these trainers out in that race. They do say you shouldn’t use new trainers in a race but these were so comfortable the moment I put them on. They performed superbly in that I never even thought about any discomfort throughout the whole race. I’m going to give it a few weeks before I do a full review but so far so good.

The race was great. The wind came in and joined the great atmosphere as did the cold. I got under the hour mark with a 53.20 and was pleased with that.
