Gross some might say, although normally I would not be so bent on keeping these. It is usually men who grow attached to tennis shoes, not women. But the truth is, I am feeling no awkward pains and I feel like they are still going strong. Not to mention I have many OTHER kinds of shoes I would like to buy this fall and running shoes are not among them!
If you look closely by the big toe area you will see a small hole beginning.
I felt like I just bought a new pair of shoes recently and OH YEAH! I DID! Not sure if you rememeber but I bought these flat puppies for speed work back in August. Well the truth is so many people told me to be careful because they were close to barefoot running and I could easily get injured if I run too much in them. SO I got paranoid and now just save them for my in house DVD workouts until my race is over. I haven't even ran in them yet. That's ok, I can wait. It is just that I don't want to buy ANOTHER pair of the same shoes again. Anyone feel me?
So tell me, how long do you go before you buy new shoes?
Do you think it is super important to get new ones or do you think I can make in through NYC with them? :)
PS I have finally started to get excited for the NYC Marathon! (I like ingmarathon on fb and they are posting way more these days)
PSS My new favorite treat I found at Target!
