Montrail on the trail

This week Montrail came out for the group run in Northville. We started at the Running Fit store and ran a few miles to the local CC course aka Cass-Bennett. I tested the Rogue Racers in a size 12. I have been wearing an 11 1/2 all year and I am on my second pair. I truly love the fit and comfort of this shoe. I noticed that the half size bigger did help with my toes not slamming into the front on the downhills. So going forward I am moving up   that half size in saving a few more toenails. The Montrail rep gave me the 2012 shoe guide that when you open it feels like shoe porn!! I made my wish list for my next pair(s) of shoes. The rep hooked me up with a zip hoodie, cap and a beanie. Of course, I am nowhere at the level of performance like Roes, Greenwood or Jones. But if Montrail ever needed someone from midpack to endorse them I got their back!! For anyone out there that runs trail on a regular basis should look into getting a pair. In addition, to some great products they are host of the Montrail Cup. Win one of the races and you get auto entry into Western States!! My first ultra was the American River 50 Mile which is one of their endorsed events. After running that race I was hooked on trails and life has never been the same :-)
