I have noticed the same problem with Vibrams being of poor manufacturing quality.

When I first started to wear them I would get 300 miles out if a pair, now it is barely 100.  I read online that the quality drop was due to their shifting production from China to Vietnam.

According to my 620 I can do a mile in under a minute.....

Being judged by my choice of running wear

Many runners go the opposite way and over dress.  Saw a runner this evening in a jacket and leggings in the middle of August.

Me I try and wear as little as possible, just a vest and shorts.  It's easier to run fast if you are cool.

Do you mix your clothing brands you wear at the same time?

I do run on my forefoot.  In Vibrams.  But they cost £105 and only last 150 miles.

I use the livettack function on long training runs 15 miles.
Don't use it in races as I don't want to carry any excess weight which would slow me down.

Very hot and was over heating by halfway.  Had to stop twice in the last 7 miles with a stitch. Had to beg water of spectators.

MK is not flat!

My wife will be driving me too.  Pretty sure I couldn't manage an hours drive after a marathon.
