According to my Nike Running iPhone app, I’ve logged over 475 miles on my Nike Free 4.0 sneakers, and it’s time for a new pair. I only ever wear them for running, so that’s actually pretty accurate. I have no idea what the average lifespan is for a pair of sneakers, and I suppose Nike could be simply trying to get me to spend more money, but they do seem to have lost some springiness lately. If anyone has any recommendations, do let me know.
My Father’s Day was pretty great. We had a lovely brunch, I got to watch plenty of the U.S. Open, my son gave me a #1 Dad star that he made in school, and my wife gave me a gift certificate for a massage. We didn’t catch the season finale of Game of Thrones, but after the boy went to bed we watched three episodes of the second season of House of Cards, which was awesome.
