    lolwut

    ohio is the BUCKEYE state....
    it's always been called that. that's why the state's school has the buckeye's mascot. people from indiana are called hoosiers because that's what the tate school is called. are you some kind of stupid?
    If he was referring to the college, I was right. If he was referring to the buckeye state, you call yourselves the buckeyes, and we'll be the empires, fine with me.
    why in the world would he be refering to the college?
    Idk, he could've been.
    uh huh Rolling Eyes
    You're too fixed on your opinions. Lagat can have a bad race, he could've been referring to something else! Can't you be wrong at least once?
    why the frick would he be talking about the college though? it doesn't make sense.

    I Lol'd when I read that, even my english and bio teacher from ohio said its really boring.. haha

    Wink
    because wahsington is amazing....

    Washington is amazing, you'd have to go there yourself, Seattle is really cool and everywhere else is really pretty (like the cascades or the peninsula) and theres tons of hippies. haha .I dont like the Midwest I think its really boring and everyone is soo conservative. Plus its soo flat, theres like no hills or anything, you look out and you see fields of nothing. WOOPIE exciting.

    maybe ohio isnt like that but i'm pretty sure its not too exciting.

    PA sucks. I don't really have anywhere pleasant to run....the only nearby state park has trails but they are ridiculously hilly for running, and often blocked by fatties walking their dogs.

    Florida is ok I guess. I'm clearly the only person who lives there or is even in the south for that matter. Although, Florida produces a hefty amount of really good YOUNG track athletes these days.

    So has anyone tried any of the '08 Nike spikes? I know they're light, but how are they as far as grip, fit, etc.?

    I'm looking for the same thing.

    I over-pronate quite a bit (actually alot) and alot of spikes kill my feet/shins
    I wouldnt suggest anything new balance [which isn't really a good choice anyways]

    I'm glad I have potentially the most neutral foot ever. I can buy pretty much any shoe I want, and usually cheaper.

    so far it seems like they have more support than the regular nike waffles.

    You don't need to try and find a shoe that fits when buying spikes, just get the fastest shoe you can buy for your budget.
