Hello everyone! This is Bryan Matheny, Harpy's bro. I am also training for the halfy in NY. Got started off to a rough start. I seem to severely overpronate and have low arches. Not a good thing for a marathon runner. After having debilitating pain in my lower legs I went to the local running store and bought some new shoes. These are what they call The BEAST!! I still had pain in the beginning, but it seems to be getting better. That's all.....BTW Go Gators!!
