Step TWO in my process of going from jogging to running:
I got new running shoes!
I went to an independent running store near me that came in high regards (from my husband and daughter who run – Feet First on 4th Street) and tried on a bunch of stuff. I think I was there 1.25 hours. The manager of the store helped me herself, watched me walk and run, suggested her favorites, discussed budget, etc.
I ended up with Brooks Glycerin and new Balega (non-cotton) socks. I spent over $100 but plan to make it quite worth it.
Right now I am looking silly on my sofa in a Nitesweatz nightgown with the new socks and sneakers, but we need to bond…
