Out with the old…

It is with a twinge of sadness that I (finally) bid farewell to the not-really-made-for-running running shoes I’ve been wearing for the past year and a half.  They took me from a complaining beginner who was barely able to run half a mile to a screaming-as-I-crossed-the-finish-line first time Half Marathoner.  The big guy suggested treating myself feet to new kicks at various points throughout my training process, and was met with staunch resistance.  I was scared my new shoes would hurt, give me blisters, not feel as worn in and beat down as my trusty Pumas.  But upon visiting REI‘s post-holiday sale I finally caved and bought some snazzy new Mizunos.  Hopefully they will take me from my first half marathon to my first whole 26.2!

    It’s so funny that you love white shoes- I hate them! I feel like they make me look like a wannabe runner! 🙂
