I went into Fleet Feet the other day to get a pair of Super Feet. The salesman did a great job of convincing me to try on some different shoes. I have been wearing Brooks for a few years and she had me try on some New Balance shoes. Oh my what a difference. They were awesome shoes and of course the most expensive in the store. I have been trying to really teach myself how to run lately and am feeling the pain. I did 7.2 miles on Monday... wow! It is exciting to even type that number.
So they didn't have my "11.5" size, which is the yardage I give away for any ribbon winnings. One of my feet measure 9 1/2 so wearing that big of shoe is still kind of weird for me. So I had them special ordered.
The store owner called me today to say they don't make the shoe in a 11.5 but they make it in a 12! What a 12!! I am totally over the fact what a running shoe's size is or color and just want comfort but I don't know if I can wear a 12 - I think it is going to be too sloshy in the heel, but he says to give it a try.
So, the ribbon winnings may be going up half a yard.
*** and my blog header disappeared so i am in attempts to make a new one. the one right now is driving me crazy - but will have to do until I have more time to work on it. Anyone have any great ideas of what I could use as "Everything Pink" banner?
