Visit to Saucony Headquarters

Saucony booth at the Boston expo
This post is about a month overdue, but better late than never, right?! The day after the Boston Marathon Andrea and I went out to Saucony's headquarters in Lexington, MA. We toured their facilities (including their new biomechanics laboratory), checked out some of the new shoes and clothing that will be hitting stores in the next year, and had a fun time chatting with several of their designers. It was essentially a running dork's dream morning! :-)

Needless to say, Saucony has a lot of awesome stuff in the pipeline. A highlight for us was checking out the new footwear models for events like the shotput, javelin, and sprints. I got to try on a pair of throwing shoes that were designed for Adam Nelson... I could spin around like a top in those things (and nearly fell over!).

Here's a few photos from our tour...

Shoes everywhere - and a runway down the middle of the offices!

Andrea left w/ some not-yet-released Fastwitch 6s
Then they took us out to lunch, and diet dew was necessary to continue to
post-race re-hydration process! :-)


  1. So jealous! I have to admit that this motivates me to keep working hard and maybe....just maybe someday get a sponsor.

    You guys are awesome!

  2. You guys are my heroes! (Found you via Janae's blog a couple months ago). I wish I could be as fast and awesome as you, but for now I'll keep training hard to maybe someday (SOON!) run a sub-1:50 half marathon :P
