Very Cool New Shoes!

I love new running shoes!
After way too many miles logged on my old pair of running shoes and recurring knee pain every time I wore them...it was time to buy a new pair. I also discovered that the air pocket on one of my old shoes had been popped (which could have been causing my knee pain). Finding the perfect running shoe is never an easy task. First of all, the only stores in the entire valley that carry a large selection of Saucony running shoes are about 45 minutes away. I waited with great anticipation all last week to go get my new shoes. When I first tried these (they are Saucony Pro Grid Hurricane's) on in the store I started laughing at the difference between my old shoes (that I had worn there). Then last Saturday I took them out for their first run on the Tolleson high school track. I love these shoes! I have gone running several times in them so far...and I haven't had any knee pain and they provide the best stability for my ankles! Right now, my favorite place to go for a run is on the high school track, at night. Usually the lights are on and no one is even on the track so I get the whole thing to myself. There is a club soccer team that practices on the field (which is probably why the lights are on) but they never bother me. It is definitely something I look forward to.

Those are awesome running shoes! I ran in a pair of saucony shoes in the Teton Dam Marathon. The cushioning was so comfortable I hardly felt any of the pounding I put into my legs afterwards. I've started running on the track a lot in Columbus; it’s so much safer then dodging traffic on the busy streets. Enjoy your new shoes!

I love new running shoes!!!! I got a new pair for my birthday and thought I would switch back and forth between the new and old ones, but no way... Good job running...you've always been amazing!
