Altra Zero Drop: Repetition

20131219-155331.jpgA few weeks ago Altra Zero Drop sent me a pair of their new high cushioned shoe called the repetition, it comes out this coming January. This shoe is mean. It’s made as a road shoe but I’ve found it works great on most any trail. I’ve tried them on some rocky Arizona trails, up American Fork canyon on the ridge trail, and I wear them a lot at my cross country practices. The size fits pretty true. The tread is killer, the deep grid system digs into all surfaces. This shoe has the traditional Altra toe box which is shaped to let your toes spread to put less stress on your joints. The one problem I had with them is the laces. They were super long, so I tried tucking them into the lacing system farther down. I suggested to them to try out a quick lacing system with the slide tightening laces. (Seen on most Hokas now) I highly recommend these shoes. I’ve loved them so far. I’ve only got about 150 miles on them and I can tell they can handle hundreds of more.

Justus Fitzsimmons – New writer for the WSG Team

My names is Justus Fitzsimmons, Scott asked me to help the Wasatch Speed Goat blog to post race results and updates about the trail running scene! Here’s a little about myself. I’m 16 years old and I live in Lehi, Utah. I’m pretty new to ultra running. I’ve run and finished Antelope Island 50k, Squaw Peak 50 miler, and the gut wrenching speed goat 50k. I run cross country for my high school. I met Scott while helping at speed goat 50k last year and I paced him through part of Wasatch 100. And that’s how I got hooked into this! Hopefully I will be able to post a lot of stuff. But with school and work it can be pretty hard!

Also, I’m a second year team member for the Wasatch Speed Goats!
