This is my inaugural post here at “Run With No Regrets”. Welcome! I really look forward to sharing my experiences as I run, try new workouts and get healthier and stronger. But most of all, I’m excited about learning from my readers, so I hope to gain some followers along the way!
So who am I, and what I am up to? To learn about me and my running so far, check out My Journey and My Races. Right now, I’m working on building up my mileage to 10 miles a week. I’m also in the middle of a month long Burpee Challenge which has been pretty tough!
Yesterday I FINALLY bought a new pair of running shoes. The running store, Rittenhouse Sports Specialities, was recommended by a friend, and I’m so glad I went. The owner is awesome and very honest about the shoe industry. After trying to become a forefoot runner, I absolutely agree with her that it does more harm than good messing with your running form. I lost 5 good months of running because of it, but I digress…
I tried on maybe 6 pairs of shoes, ran around the store with them, and really took my time. I was torn between a pair of Saucony and Asics, but went with the Asics GT-2000’s. They’re so pretty! I’m just nervous because I really want these shoes to work for me. Wearing the right running shoes is SO important!
My next post will be about my first run with the new shoes! I look forward to hearing your insights Thanks for reading, and please comment and say hello! Cheers!
