New Running Shoes!

Man oh man did I underestimate the power of some new running shoes! I'm usually really good about replacing something when it runs out, but with athletic shoes I mistakingly judge their current condition by their exterior appearance versus their age and shock absorption. It wasn't until just the other day that I started to think about how much walking I did while I was pregnant, and how much more weight I was carrying back then. It then dawned on me that I hadn't bought new running shoes for over 6 years!!! I went online and just learned that athletic shoes should be replaced about every 500 miles, or 6 months!!! Well, now I know, and am happily sporting my new Asics....AHHHHH, I feel like I'm walking on AIR!

  1. I've been looking for some new running shoes..maybe I'll try some Asics! I usually buy New Balance, but the ones I bought recently really hurt my feet. I wish you could try them for a week before the big purchase!
