The quest for The One perfect running shoe.
That can be frustrating, painful and costly.
I went back to my Brooks Ravenna after the Pure Flow fiasco.
I found another pair of Ravenna 2 in clearance for $55 and I used my REI dividend and member 20% coupon to get a pair of Ravenna 3.
We just had an Earthquake as I am typing this. I hate those. Not a good side of living here in California that is for sure.
Those are my new Ravenna 3:
I will rotate between 2 and 3 for now. I tried the 3 and so far so good. They made some changes and so far all good for me.
Millet sports offers the BROOKS Ravenna 3 at a reasonable price, visit them online for more details milletsports.co.uk
With the Pure Flow I ended up having Plantar Fasciitis coming back. I am hoping things go back to "normal" with this adjustment. Since I fell I am so scared of falling again it is driving me crazy. I need to shake this out of my system!
The One who is making my abs hurts today:
Aouchy...hurts to laugh...I don't think I will have a 6 pack in 6 weeks BUT maybe a 2 pack someday!! :)
The One who convinced me that I CAN do a marathon: look the the right that pretty blond gal in the picture with me...my Arizona friend. I had been thinking about it..I thought I could do it but I needed a little push...a "yes you can do it".
The One who made my day Monday: My ex boss in Quebec. I used to be an engineer in my pre-kids life and I kept contact with some people from my old job in Canada. I worked here too before having my first son but sadly I did not stay in touch with anyone because..well they were not happy with my pregnancy and things ended badly. Anyway I am going off topic..this week was my ex boss birthday so I wrote a happy birthday message on his Facebook wall. This is what he responded
"Thank you Caroline. You inspired me and a year ago I started to do exercise and have better meal. I lost 50 pounds since then. Si tu viens à Mtl fais-moi signe"
That made me happy.
The One I want to be? The One who will be picked for one of the NUUN Relay team for the 2012 Hood to Coast! It is one of my dreams to run Hood to Coast! I am working on my application..I am almost done!!
Dont forget my
