I've since taken the Elixir out on three runs: a 3- and 6-miler out on the road and a 4-mile treadmill run.
In a nutshell, some stats and my observations
And a few opinions:
Bottom Line: Is it everything I dreamed of? Mostly. Will we have to go to counseling in the future to save our relationship? Maybe. Will my slutty shoe needs still crop up once in a while? Pour me a gin & tonic and we'll see. Overall, I'd definitely recommend the Elixirs to someone looking for the lightweight feel of a (semi?)minimalist shoe without losing out on the cushioning of a regular running shoe.
