New Running Shoes
Apparently, I was in dire need of some new running shoes. I have been complaining about sore feet, tender heels, and tired legs for the last few weeks of my training. I talked with my coach about the heel thing, and she took one look at my shoes and gasped! I immediately went to my local running store, and got fitted for a new pair, because in two weeks these shoes need to take me here, and then three weeks later, they need to take me here, and then about 6 weeks later, they are going to need to take me here (just the 1/2 portion).
That's a lot of running! I have been working towards earning that "runner" title. I probably should have earned it after completing last year's 1/2 marathon, but I still didn't feel confident enough to identify with other runners. I think I am well on way to earning it by now though, what do you think?!
Mary, I think this means I am committed to the Leavenworth 1/2 since I have now written about it. Are you in?
