Lovely news shoes, and flashing armbands too!

No excuse for not training for my March 10k now. I should be able to run with the breeze!!!!!!!! love them, I will have purple power! I was advised on a wider fit than my old ones AND a further half size bigger..........no wonder I was beginning to get tender toes now I am trying to run further. Well worth going to a specialist Runners shop!

The armbands are from Aldi ยฃ1.99 for two, thanks misswobble for the pointer, brilliant for my early morning runs๐Ÿ˜ƒ My first bit of bling!

  • Oooh lovely... Brooks Adrenaline? I love the colour. You'll be flying now :)

  • Spot on with the Brooks McFitty . I love the colour too! My other pair were New Balance which I loved but boring white, these are so much more PURPLE๐Ÿ˜‰

  • They certainly are SO much more purple - gorgeous!

  • Followed you advice McFitty and made sure I wore the right bra in case of treadmill bounce hehehe.

  • They look good! Yes, always need more room as feet swell when running, but then not too much, should be about a thumbs width of space from the end of the longest toe(usually the big toe) to the front of the shoe, hold it secure through the midfoot, with little or no slippage at the heel. my usual casual shoe size is a 9 but in a running shoe is 10-10.5๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Spot on Dave, my usual is size 5, these are a 6.5, fit lovely.......first run out in them tomorrow. Enjoy your 10k Dave, let us know how it goes!

  • Brooks? I swear by brooks and I always get the same ones, they will serve you well :)

  • That's great to know ju-ju, can't wait to try them in the morning......feels like Christmas Eve lol๐Ÿ˜€

  • Look good . Used to put those lights on my dogs collar when walking evenings and early mornings. I have some strapped on my bike to use in emergency should my light fail.
