Okay, quick post before bathtime.
As I have stated, I have had to buy new shoes to fit my newly acknowledged half size larger feet. Today, I was in the store looking for running shoes for general exercise, and etc. I normally am not a big tennis shoe/ athletic shoe person. I am a big fan of Danskos, so once I started wearing those daily, I was in heaven. Until today.
Shopping with my Sister in Law, who has decided to start training for her first marathon in the fall, I was looking for something. I was just thinking two days ago about getting my butt in gear to get ready to do a 5K, I haven’t done a 5K in years. The last one I did was I think 9 years ago. And I used to be Cross Country. Now, I was never fast, or award winning, but I ran, and ran, until a bad injury my sophmore year of high school. Every once in awhile, I get an idea of running again, but the pain comes. But anyway, nowadays, you can always walk the races.
So as I was saying, I was thinking in my head about a 5K (but not verbalizing it) and here my sis-in-law mentions marathon training. So, I tell her, the first step is a good pair of shoes. So, off we went.
We tried on many a pair. But then the sales woman pointed to a pair she herself owned. Sis tried them on. “Whoa, these are comfortable” I decided to give it a go also, “Are you kidding me? These are great?” But could we really leave the store with the identical pair of shoes?
So, after trying on many other pair, I came back to the Nike Pegasus. I have to give Nike credit. They do make a good shoe. Now we’ll see how much that shoe motivates us to move…
So far, the shoes did make me want to dirty them up a little, so I did my gardening while LM napped. Who knows where the shoes will take me tomorrow…
