In this first test, I just checked the GPS and pace quickly, but really was geeked up to test out the wireless headphones. Setup was simple & straightforward, the menu is as simple as humanly possible, just click the square button below the screen in one of the 4 directions, you can figure just about any function out with no instructions necessary.
If running were always as simple as "just run" then it would be simple enough for all of us to "just run", right? Instead, we add GPS, PR's, Pace, VO MAX, Negative Splits, Tempo Runs, Fartleks, Hill Repeats, and even #$^%* Wreck Bags to the mix in order to keep running interesting. To put it another way, running apparently isn't crazy enough for some of us by itself, somehow "runners" need to make it completely over-the-top insane to keep motivated. WTH?
The Reebok All Terrain Super OR's are extremely light and flexible with great traction, and just the right combo of heel-toe drop and cushioning along with a midfoot rock plate to make them great trail racing shoes on non-technical terrain. The upper is surprisingly breathable for a high-tech "durable" material, and they are extremely comfortable if you have a pretty normal foot width; though they may prove to be a little too narrow for some athletes.
When coupled with already being a little light-headed from an endorphin high, it really doesn't take much for me to get the exact feeling I'm trying to achieve: painless, effortless running with virtually no impact with each step. I don't know about you, but to me this seems like the holy grail of running - the ability to run longer, easier, with less (or no) pain.
