    I'm the same way, but i won't get flats until I pay for them myself, probably in college.

    at our school, you can't get inducted into NHS until you are a junior.

    same here, but it really screws with sports, because you have to tutor alot after school and thats going to interfer with xc and track Mad

    Yeah, and the PRs are $90, so I'll probably just order a $40 pair of spikeless forevers. Hopefully they'll be a little more aggressive than my current flats.

    If you look around, you could probably find a 20% off code. I think I saw one on Dyestat.

    All good choices, but I'm not sold on the marathoners (that's what those are, aren't they?). I'd rather go with the T5s or Mayflys.
    They're the zoom streak xc's, so there pretty much made for ashphalt (road races) or grassy xc courses. I'd recommend them if you like the feel of the milers, they are quite similar. You need really strong feet if you buy the mayfly's. They have pretty much no support or cushioning (why they're so light) and they even say only use for a max of 100km.

    Yeah, I thought they looked like the marathoners. If I got mayflys I'd only use them for 5ks (only road races I run). I've heard good things about the streaks, though.
