So I braved the scary running shop

So I braved the scary running shop

...and this is what I brought home. Not so scary actually - there was a very friendly and helpful 20-something man who gave me lots of time. I'm glad that I practised on the gym treadmill last week - however badly that went- as I was on the shop treadmill repeatedly - first barefoot then with each pair of shoes. In the end I had to stop him from bringing more pairs out as I was getting confused! I already knew that I pronate a lot so went for the most corrective pair that I tried, which were Mizuno. I do feel a bit sad that I didn't get Brooks shoes - both my daughters have had Brooks so in my mind they are 'proper running shoes '. However these are quite pretty

  • It took me about 3x to really brave the scary running shop. The first time I sort of prowled around it, the second time I actually went inside it, but they were very busy and I felt well and truly ignored. Not really surprising when I'm skulking round the edge pretending to look at shoes. The third time I told myself not to be so stupid, middle-aged (alright... old) overweight women have as much right as anyone else to run, and I walked in bold as brass, had a great time, talked running with a customer who was about 30 years younger than me and came out with my current running shoes. Oh, and the knowledge my gait is neutral.
