Saturday, August 10, 2013, will be the 40th Annual running of the Missionary Ridge Road Race with proceeds from the race to be split equally between the local chapter of American Red Cross and Team Bruner Scholarships. This is a 4.7 mile out and back course atop Missionary Ridge. It starts at the Bragg Reservation and goes out South Crest Road, extends around East Crest Road and then returns on South Crest Road to the finish line at Bragg Reservation. Trees shade the scenic course and there are two major hills with the rest of the course gently rolling.

Model: Mirage 2
I am now in my 4th pair of the Mirage, two of them being the first model. I loved the Mirage 1 the moment I put it on. Seemed to hold up really well up to 300 miles. I wore them for work after I was done running in them, and they still felt fine, but the upper started to rip slightly at the small toe. When I tried the Mirage 2 on for the first time the cushioning in the forefoot felt “bumpy”. After a few runs, that feeling went away and it felt like the old one. I just got my 2nd pair of the 2’s, and ran in them about 5 times before the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon. They felt good through the whole race. I have worn them for 5k’s as well and like them for any distance. My first pair of the 2’s now has almost 400 miles and the upper seems to be holding up a lot better than the Mirage 1.
I wear this shoe for all my training and racing and love how light and responsive it is.

If minimalism is more your style, try the Gel-Hyper Speed 5!
A favorite of American record holder Ryan Hall, the HyperSpeed 5 features a lightweight platform, breathable upper, and a moisture drainage system. This versatile shoe is well suited for a range of runners both on the road and around the track. The trusstic system beneath the arch reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe, and the Wet Grip outsole is made from a special blend of organic and non-organic components, designed to enhance traction even on wet surfaces.

Try the new Nike Zoom Elite+ 5 – a lightweight, low-profile shoe with runner-specific support, responsive cushioning and a supportive fit for faster-paced training and racing!
Built for speed, the Nike Zoom Elite+ 5 keeps the foot locked into place while delivering excellent breathability: the independent adaptive fit midfoot support with lightweight mesh and strategically-placed overlays offer this breathable support. A co-molded 3/4-length crash pad and Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot give the shoe a responsive snap off the road. The carbon rubber heel and Duralon blown rubber in the lateral forefoot provide a durable, responsive traction element for all surfaces.
Since the ball of the foot takes a lot of impact during runs, the Nike Zoom Elite+ 5 has a thin, yet springy Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot. It helps provide cushioning while absorbing impact. The Cushlon crash pad runs three-quarters the length of the midsole and helps absorb shock, especially for runners who strike in the midfoot.
Weight: 8.6 oz. (women); 10.6 oz. (men)
