...But this time it's 2 pairs of cross training sneakers instead of heels. I consider them well earned after day 50 of exercise streak and with my feet beginning to hurt because of insufficient/inappropriate foot gear. I know I will earn some callouses with training for the marathon but I rather not earn them for the wrong reasons. I'm hoping my new foot gear will protect me from all of that. I got 2 pairs of Asics gels for $106. I will also say that I was completely overwhelmed by the sporting goods store I went into to purchase them. I saw so many things that I 'need' for my workouts. Honestly I will need some things as the distance gets longer, running bras, running belts, wool socks, tech gear, id tags, reflective gear, etc. Anyway, next time I will shop with someone else who can support me in my overwhelm and also give me guidance on purchases.
