I have shoes!

by , under personal

Running shoes, that is. This weekend we went to a local running store (not a general sporting goods place) where there was someone who could watch me walk and figure out what sort of shoe I need.

I now have a pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12. And boy, it feels like a complete 180 from what I’d been running in.

TheBoy came along with me on my run today, which was nice. I’m not used to actually having someone to talk to, and when we got to the final stretch of me walk/run, he pushed me to run it. And I did!

16:45. Considering that I took a week off from running because of my being sick, the heat and then my ankle- I’m pretty darn proud of that time for my mile.

Yes, I do plan on starting Couch to 5k. That’s on the slate for this upcoming week. I anticipate a lot of whining.

If you’re into misery, well, then you’ll probably be in luck.
