Christening my new pair of Nike Pegasus running shoes

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 running shoesI know I should be running instead of writing about running but I was reinstalling run-tracking apps onto my Samsung Galaxy S8 Active and wanted to start with a fresh pair of running shoes since you can plug your runners into a couple of the apps and then when you track a run the apps will also track the mileage that you put onto your shoes.

I feel like an average pair of garden variety running shoes will last between 350-500 miles if the runner isn’t too much of a Princess and the Pea.

Here’s what it looks like on Strava (www.strava.com/settings/gear):

My History with Nike Pegasus

Back when I was a runner in my 20s and 30s, I either bought Saucony Jazz or Nike Pegasus running shoes. They never cost more than $85 at the time, which was a real deal even then. While the new Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 runners are priced at $140/pair, I got a new pair of Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 running shoes–you can see them below, untouched as of yet: zero miles!

I don’t remember the versions of Pegasuses I had in the past but they were surely pre-2010–it’s been a while, to be sure. In the last 8-years, I have been true blue Mizuno and in the last 4-years I have been mostly running in Hoka One Ones, especially Hoka One One Bondi 3s and a pair of Hoka One One Speedgoats and a pair of Hoka One One Bondi 4s. 

But, as you can see below, I am giving the old reliables another go, starting today!
