I decided to give Asics a run!
As I wrote in my last post on sneakers, I was still on the hunt for a second pair, looking for a pair that offered the cushioning and support my feet needed, especially as I train for longer runs.
I started my running journey a few months ago, just barely making it through a mile. I completed my first race, a 4 miler on New Years, and now am working my way up to a 10k.

The Saucony sneakers I own have the support I need and are super light weight. I am happy with the amount of cushioning but wondered if I would do better on longer runs with more.
After recommendations from friends, I decided to try Asics, as I heard their gel cushioning was great.
I choose to order online through Famous Footwear because they had a wide selection and even though some pairs weren't discounted, you still got their rewards.
I ordered a few pairs, and decided to keep the Gel Cumulus 17, which I paid $90 for.
