Did the girl make the new shoes run better for her?
So in order to try out my new shoes, I ran 4 miles today. (Ok, so I was going to run 4 miles anyway, but it’s all about shoes…) It felt so good to get a good, solid chunk of mileage in that wasn’t crappy. Like last Saturday when I ran 5 miles, it just didn’t feel like I did my best. I gave in to my mind too quickly. But today, I only had one walk break and was solid the rest of the time. My route seemed mad, crazy hilly but it probably wasn’t.
It was incredibly hot, but I managed. Ok, enough about my run. Back to the shopping trip.
Other things I bought: two packets of gu and a little thing of pepper spray. (There have been some recent attacks on the trail I run at.) I’m good to go.
When I got back, I was reading all about gu on the Internet and I learned they have this very cool recycle program that rewards you for not throwing your gu wrapper on the ground. Also did you know that the banana blitz flavor was the first without caffeine? Trivia of the day, I’m telling you.
