Hello all! Just wanted to give you an update on my half-marathon efforts! Unfortunately they’ve been stalled for the week due to rainy days and extreme shin pain. I tried a couple of economical self-fixes, but Misha was right, I wasn’t smart enough to type my shins on my own. So I stopped running, hoping they would heal themselves.
I decided that in order to help the shin-situation I would get new running shoes. I went down to Runner’s Alley this morning for a fancy new pair of running shoes. The ladies at RA are kind of geniuses. They know everything about running, they were also completely aghast at the state of my current running shoes. They insisted I needed a new pair about a year ago, and were convinced that they were the cause of my shin pain.
After trying on a million, ok 8, pairs of shoes, they finally brought out the big guns. They prefaced the arrival of these shoes by saying “they’re the cadillac of running shoes.” BOOM. I was already sold. I tried them on and they were like running on a cloud-I was practically prancing around the store, and I’m about to take them for a spin right now!
