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 £1.99 for two, thanks misswobble for the pointer, brilliant for my early morning runs😃 My first bit of bling!

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 PURPLE😉

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 10-10.5😊

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.
