I'm so excited to try out my new running shoes tomorrow! I went to Fleet Feet on Monday and Christa helped me pick out the perfect shoe. At least, let's hope it's the perfect shoe. The best thing about buying my shoes at Fleet Feet is the experience. Everyone is friendly and says hello even if they aren't helping you. Christa was awesome. She took her time helping me and asked about any other issues I might be having. Which gave me the perfect opportunity to complain about how much my calf muscles hate me. Much to my surprise, she said she nearly quit running because of her calf muscles!! And I thought I was the only one. She gave me some great tips! I already have the stick, but now I'm using it every night before bed.
Of course going to Fleet Feet and not falling in love with something is nearly impossible, at least for me. Oh wait, maybe that's my shopping addiction in general. I did find the perfect running shirt while i was there.
New shoes and a new shirt what else could a girl want before an almost nine mile run. How about beautiful weather? Looks like I'm going to get that too! Likely it will still be quite cold at 7 am in the morning, but at least the sun will be shining and warming up!
