I got a list of models from Mizuno and Nike and went to Dick's Sporting Goods to try as many as I can find there. I also got a good tip from Chris K who told me about this great blog runblogger where the guy tests lots of shoes. Thanks Chris. On that website I found this place running warehouse.
So I tried several pairs of shoes, found one that is great for me I think, hard to know for sure without REALLY running with them for a while but they feel good. Came back home and went to look on the running warehouse website and there they were: on SALE! At the store they were $90 and online $45!!!!!!!! Free 1 day shipping and free return, cannot beat that.
So Tuesday these Mizuno should arrive at my door
and on Wednesday we will have a date for a few miles, let's hope we get along great! I had not planned to go to the store again today and it took me an eternity to try all the shoes. That included doing a little run in the store looking like a fool (of course I saw 2 families of kids I coached before!). Once I was done it started to rain and time had run out. We had a babysitter coming at 1 pm to go catch a movie so I skipped my run but it is worth it if those shoes are THE ONES.
Went to see The Company Men and I highly recommend it. It was excellent and all the actors are great in it.
Tuesday I get the results of my scan and once I know all is OK, I will register for OC Half Marathon and Disneyland Half Marathon!
