G’day friends. Happy Sunday to you all. We had a weird Sunday here. I guess you could say our summer streak came to a halt. Bugger! Those sunny 75F dropped down to a rainy and windy 50F. Really now, isn’t it supposed to be summer here? But that’s what you get for living on a southern hemisphere island, right?
Yes, I know I talk about the weather like it’s the most interesting thing in the whole word, but believe you me, it is when you are here. Haha. Well that and earthquake talk. I stayed inside and did some strength work. The hubs on the other hand had a long run… outside…. in cold wind and rain. Tough as Nails I tell ya!
Alright so about this post. I have to brag here a moment. I know some pretty smart and talented people. You see, our friend and fellow pro triathlete/ironman champion, Olivier Bernhard, is one of the founders of On-Cloud
What’s his story? Well, as a former pro, Oliver was…
“so fed-up with the lack of innovation and performance which his sponsors’ running shoes provided him that he set out to develop his own cushioning system – the award-winning CloudTec™.”
I’d say that’s a pretty smart move, don’t you?
Anyway, Olivier was so kind to send me a pair of On-Cloud Running shoes to review myself. He knew that I had struggled with several foot injuries in the past and thought that the On-Cloud Runners would be a great fit. I was a little hesitant to stray away from my Kswiss shoes, but I am sure glad I gave them a try. So hear me out, k?
As you know, I am a K-swiss fan, but now I will also be a Cloud girl. I think I will use the Cloud Running shoes for all my road running from now on. Talk about some major shock absorbency! I’ll save the Kswiss for the trails and cross training.
Best of both worlds here. And yes, I am on Cloud 9! Ha-ha, I had to throw that in there somewhere.
What do you think of their technology and design? Would you try them? I’d love your thoughts and of course I am happy to answer any questions I can.
Waiting for the sun.
