Sitting in my sofa with a hot cup of coffee trying to get warm after the ordeals of the day so far.
I finally finally pulled myself together – so after my morning power yoga session I ventured out into the pouring rain (and I really men pouring – it is coming down like there is no tomorrow out there) and went to the marathon store. Great place for the running people of the city – all and everything just for runners – with only runners working there – so as opposed to other stores with sports equipment you are sure they know what you are talking about when describing your situation.
And 4 trys, 4 filmed runs, loads of evaluation, discussions back and forth, a second opinion, more evaluation, 45 minutes later I was one pair of shoes richer – but even more rich in the running department.
And that last part is worth so much more – running is a cheap sport. But if you wan to be good to yourself, be good to your feet, knees, thighs and all the joints and hamstrings – you go seek help from professionals to guide you to a happier life with your feet.
And please to have the love of your feet for a long time follow these rules:
1. Do NOT look at the price until you´ve chosen your shoe.
2. Do NOT look at the visual design – it isn´t what makes it a good shoe.
3. Listen to your feet – what do they tell you.
No sense in buying expensive shoes if not for the wellfare and benefit of you feet and legs. But somehow you always seem to end up with a shoe you didn’t fall for on the showcase wall, and somehow the right shoe for you feet is almost never funky just kind of dull – especially when displayed next to those aluring shoes of many an eye-catching and head turning colours – like Newtons.
But stick to the shoe that fits you and then you can always spice the shoe up – e.g. bright laces.
Hope the weather will clear up for tomorrow – so I can give them their first try – just a short one I promise to be good – not more than a 10k.
And for the rest of the weekend I’ll be flashing these babies….
I just love cognec coloured leather…so pretty…I love my addiction….
Nice weekend to all out there.
