Merrell Trunk Show
Saturday April 12th from 10 am to 5 pm
Meet Merrell Sales Representative Aaron Brown at Medved on Saturday April 12th from 10 am to 5 pm.  This will be a great opportunity to see all the great new spring styles.  Merrell not only makes great hiking boots, but some of the most comfortable (and stylish) outdoor casual shoes and sandals around.  If you love the outdoors, then Merrell has a shoe for you.  Special orders will be accepted.   Below is just a teaser of what you will see...
Siren Ventilator Mid GTX XCR:  The perfect mid cut light hiker for Spring.  The addition of GORE-TEX gasket construction with antimicrobial GORE-TEX XCR fabric lining keeps this supportive mid-height Siren breezy even in bad weather. Distinctive crossover leather buttressing support a mesh upper that's protected by molded bumpers at toe and heel. Biomechanically efficient Q-Form® technology in a Merrell Air Cushion midsole aligns and cushions each stride.  Available in women's sizes.  $95.00
Waterpro Maipo:  Good for in or out of the water.  This Waterpro runs fast wet or dry-a prime candidate for canyoneering as mesh upper drains automatically via ports in the micro mesh upper and in the antimicrobial footbed. Dynamic lacing system locks together a micro-mesh upper and supportive synthetic leather strapping. Air Cushion midsole for amphibious ventures includes Q-Form® stride alignment for women.  Available in men's and women's sizes.  $80
San Remo:  A sandal that's nothing if not well-adjusted: thin leather strapping can be custom-cinched at the ankle while the rear strap can be removed for a free feel. Two padded posts combine with Q-Form alignment and Merrell Air Cushion to support and ease every stride.  Available in women's whole sizes.  $70
Genoa:  Merrell took a thong and integrated a toe tube, adding some arabesque features to the leather upper through contrastive overlays, perfs and stitch detailing. Sunflower sole wraps up and around an EVA footframe with full cushioning components, including femme-specific Q-Form stride alignment.  In otherwords, this sandal is very comfortable.  Available in women's whole sizes.  $70

Road Racing News
Congratulations to Jeff Beck (14:50) and Jennie Donofrio (17:50) for their victories last weekend at Parkinson's 5K Canal Race in Brighton.   Sunny skies, perfect running temperatures and a new course provided everyone with a great experience.  Click here for race results.
Next on the calendar is this Saturday's Meaghan's 5K Race/Walk.  This race is in honor of Meaghan Latone, a young Rochester mom who is currently battling non-smokers lung cancer.

At Meaghan's request, all money raised through this event will go to the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center, directed toward lung cancer research.
Also coming up in April is the St. J's 5K in Naples (April 26th) and the Better Life 5K (April 27th).  See the PCR Timing Website for more info.
Coming in May:  We are pleased to help sponsor this year's Pink Ribbon Run and Walk.  This event includes a women's 5K road race and a 2.5 mile family fitness walk and will be held on Mother's Day (Sunday May 11th).  Money raised will go to benefit the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester.  Every dollar raised stays in the Rochester community to benefit the lives of those impacted by breast cancer. 
Nike Air Zoom Explosion 2
Now in stock, the name of this shoe says it all.  This lightweight shoe from Nike will make you feel like you have exploded out of the start gate.  The Explosion 2 features an open breathable mesh upper with internal arch strap that adds midfoot support. Full-length Phylite midsole with forefoot Zoom Air unit offers a responsive ride. BRS 1000 carbon rubber in the heel provides durability.
