Don’t miss my weekend Barney Butter GIVEAWAY: 24 snack packets are up for grabs – yummm!
* * *
Happy Saturday night. Anything exciting planned? I’m wearing my favorite faded ex-college sweats and am laying low. I’ve been feeling under the weather lately; between all the packing, driving, errands, and unpacking, I’m pooped.
Anyway, today one of my errands included going to Fleet Feet to possibly buy a new pair of running shoes. Since I’ve had some knee pain lately, and just started training for half marathon #4, I think I am due for a new pair.
My typical rule of thumb for buying new running shoes is roughly every 500 miles or 6 months.
I’ve been sporting Asics for several years [since my first season of cross country in ‘05]. I’ve been very pleased with them all around; however, as I runner, I’m always eyeing others’ fancy schmancy athletic footwear. Today I tried on a few other brands at the store to see if something else was comparable to what I’m used to. No luck. The girl helping me confirmed that I’m running in the right shoe. I think I’m an Asics 2100 model for life ;)
Asics 2130: I think these are my favorite color of them all. I’ve had 2 pairs; though, both of which are retired/trashed.
Asics 2140: these are on their very last miles – so sad.
The Asics 2160’s are now out, but I’m not a fan of any of the colors =/ I’m leaning towards a second pair of the 50’s. I’ve never been a fan of purple… what’s your opinion?
Boring and ugly or cute and simple?
I’m going to go finish unpacking my life, maybe read a few pages, sip tea… a.k.a. be the old grandma in me.
