Saturday evening, we headed over to The Running Depot. I have been needing new shoes. Since my 10K is one month away and The Crim in 90 some days, the next pair of shoes will be the ones I will be wearing. I have worn Nike shoes since at least 10th grade...nothing else. I was willing, this time though, to go with whatever they recommended. The guy measured my foot and then brought out three different shoes. I had to remind myself that it wasn't about brand or looks, it was about comfort. So, I walked out of there with a pair of Asics. They are super comfy and I ran 4 miles in them this morning and my feet feel fine. It usually takes me a good two weeks to break in a new pair of shoes and by then, my heals are so blistered up that it takes another two to where I can take off my bandages. So, I love 'em! Kinda scary that these will be taking me the distance of The Crim though.
