Thank you. I was thinking that was probably the way i had to go, but was realy hoping to be wrong. Any recommendations for stores?

You need to go to a running store. The people that work there know the shoes and how to fit people. You will spend about an hour there because they are going to look at how your current shoes have worn, look at your feet barefoot and either watch you run in your shoes or video you on a treadmill. Then they will pull out different brands of shoes that they think will fit you the best for you to try.

Even with training you need good running shoes. I know they are expensive! I put a few dollars away each paycheck to afford mine but it is so worth it.

Following the Golden Rules:
1. Eat when I am hungry
2. Eat what I want
3.Eat consciously
4.Stop when I am full.

For training, I'm okay with the crap sneakers I have, but when it is closer the the real thing, I want some good, not going to break the banks sneakers. Does anyone have ideas on the best approach to get the right sneakers? I did a quick Amazon search, but I think I would want to try them on and get feedback that isn't based on sales incentives before commiting to buying a pair. Does anyone have any feedback?
