In order to run today I had to go early this morning (as in 6am). So I got up at 5:45, had a Gu, did my ChiRunning warm up and took off. It was raining lightly; enough to get me a little wet. I didn't mind the temperature, 47-ish, or wet shorts, but my forehead was itching like crazy (I think it was cold). I wore gloves to keep my hands warm, and a long sleeve short. The 5 miles felt very slow (47:33), but since I didn't eat a real breakfast and was powered on water and a Gu I think I did OK.
I checked the bottom of my shoes and they have nearly identical wear patterns. Usually my right shoe shows more wear in the toe area. I think a greater awareness of form and improvements from Core Performance have resulted in both feet contacting the ground in similar ways. I also noticed the tread is nearly non-existent. With trail running in the near future I'll need to get some shoes with some grip.
