Ran 5k today and was awarded with this badge. It was quite a sad moment, these shoes have been through a lot with me, they completed my first HM with me, they’ve done 400 miles with me. I don’t want to let go!
They feel like they have some life left in them, they pass the twist test, they’re still really comfy... but I now need to get new shoes for the long runs. Maybe these old faithfuls can do the odd parkrun with me in the future.
I can’t believe that I have so much emotion invested in a pair of shoes. Others have come and go and it didn’t bother me. Can anyone suggest a good therapist to get me through these times?
