BUT TODAY...Lil Mama GOT NEW SHOES!!!
I went to Complete runner hoping they would have the Mizuno Sayonara. This was the shoe they recommended in this months Runners World. I have never ran in Mizuno's. But the last 2 pair of Brooks have given me blisters start to finish. So we shall see!
Why I chose the Mizuno:
- recommended for over 32 miles a week.
- neutral running shoe
- light weight, 8.5 oz
Why didn't I buy it????
I could not justify 170$$ for running shoes when I was taking the boys back to school shopping. "Sorry boys, you can't get binders and notebooks cause mom got new running shoes!"
Every one left shopping with a couple bags. I actually had a 20$ rewards card to Finish Line and I USED IT! We buy so many shoes there that we get money back quite often and usually I give it to the boys...NOT THIS TIME! Guilt Free!
|Shirt and socks were FREE! Needed a Med. size water bottle...little splurge!|
Monday was my stupid long run.
"Even if you stumble You are still moving forward."Mondays RUNDOWN:
This was so hard. And it hurt. And I was so thankful Andy showed up on his bike to keep me company for an hour of the ALMOST 5 hours!!!
And it was sooo LONG...
But I finished!!YA Who Bubaloo!..couldn't walk all day without whining but I FINISHED!
Distance: 8 miles
Everyone bailed on this run but Ken H. It was super soupy out. 100% humidity seemed to have scared everyone off only it didn't scare the deer or deer flys off. We saw a 3 deer the side of the trail hardly startled by us. We came within 5 feet of the larger one and she let us run right past her.
I killed 8 deer flies trying to attach to me. As soon as I commented how the bugs were not out they came a running and biting!
Are there any Ultra runners that read this?? If so what shoes do you recommend??
