I need shoes. I really do.
Yesterday, I made the mistake of lining up my running shoes as I wanted to see the brands. I only have 4 pair and two of them are actually over a year old. I put A LOT of miles on my shoes. (ok, not compared to some, but for me a lot).
Dear Hubby saw the shoes and even asked, “What do you buy a new pair a month?”
I had to explain that I don’t and that I just keep my old ones. Now, I could easily buy a pair a month, but I do have some restraint. Now that being said, I did just buy a pair last month. I don’t like them. I still continue to battle foot pain with them. They really haven’t helped the way I thought they would. Now to top it off they squeak. NO, I am not kidding! It’s not just me either. My running partners heard it yesterday too. I think I might need a new pair of shoes.
Now as to why they squeak, last week I went to go for 7 mile interval training. Grabbed my stuff and headed out the door only to realize that I left not just my headphones at home, but also my socks. I thought, “how bad could it be?” I also knew that if I returned home without getting my run in that was it. I wouldn’t get it in. So, I ran. It sucked, but I got it done. By the time I was done, I had blisters and ended up walking my cool down with shoes in hand. I’m sure I looked so sassy. Since then, my shoes squeak. I may have to powder them, but I can’t keep running in them. To be honest I don’t think they are the right shoes for my feet anyway. I wonder if Dear Hubby can understand that.
Although, I guess I should be glad that he only saw how many pairs of sneakers I have and not how many pairs of boots!
So how many pair of running shoes to you have hiding in your closet?
