….is to change her mind, RIGHT?
So I did. ;)
The Newbies just didn’t do it for me last night on the treadmill. I ran/walked for an hour and it just felt like my shoes were sloshing around the whole time. My toes didn’t know what to do – they went from a studio apartment to mansion overnight!!!
The fit was much too boxy and I didn’t feel like the shoe was supporting my foot.
And after just an hour, the ball of my foot felt….how do I describe it……*rubbed.* Like my foot was moving around too much and had I run a longer duration I would have had blisters. I didn’t like it.
So I went back to see Jeremy today and traded him for the other pair of Asics that were the runner up to the New Balances. These were definitely the more pricey model, but if they make my feet happy, then it’s all worth it. I am not keen on the color, but again, there are no fashion contests to be won by me anytime soon. One trip down the canal and they certainly won’t be white anymore, that’s for sure!
I also discovered that too many trips to the running store can be dangerous. There are just waaaaaaaaay too many goodies and gadgets to buy. This one caught my eye today because I have been in need of a hydration belt. Anyone have any experience with it?
I know Lisa doesn’t like hers cause it rides up…this one claims not to.
I’ll try not to post tomorrow about yet another pair of running shoes. ;)
