Yes I need running shoes...I am a runner if I run 2 blocks or 2 miles.

Monday, July 25, 2011

I need a new pair of shoes.

I need running shoes.

I am a runner.

Well, I'm sort of a runner. I don't run a lot yet. But I want to. And what am I waiting for?

What is the line I need to cross to be considered a runner who is in need of running shoes?

I used to think - I'll get nice, new running shoes when I can do a 5K consistently. I'll invest in the right shoes when I run more than once and a while.

Now I need to think - the line I need to cross - to consider myself a runner is the threshold of my front door.

I am a runner if I run. I am a runner if I run 2 blocks or 2 miles. I am worth a decent pair of shoes if I try. Because, if I try - I will succeed. I am worth a try. I am worth the shoes to help me try.

    Start off on the right foot and make sure it has the right equipment on it. You are very much worth the cost of a pair of good running shoes.

    I tried running in regular gym shoes, and started having knee problems within the first week -- which went away when I bought a pair of real running shoes and started running in them instead. So it's worth the investment!
