Finished my 2nd 5k. A cold front had just come in so the temp. was in the 60's. The wind was from the north and about 20-30 miles. Usually it is in the 80's what a difference. The race was for diabetes and I was support motivated to run in this race. My mother has diabetes and my late mother-in-law had the disease. I was glad to come in 2 mins. faster than the last race. I was so proud of myself. I need to remember I am important and I need to be strong for myself.
As a treat for myself I got some new shoes. The others were making my heels hurt. I had gotten a pair for overponers but I really do not think I have the problem. Eventhough I have been wearing them for about 5 months since I have been jogging they have started to hurt.
I went looking at several stores before I could find a pair I liked. I stayed with NB because they have the wide size. Most stores do not have wide shoes so easy to shop. I just ask show me a running shoe size 8 wide. No shoes, 1 pair and if I am lucky 2 pair to try on. Finally I found a pair. I just finished reading an article about running socks. I don't think I have a problem now but if I do 1/2 marathon I will look into it.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
