Bright red running shoes

I have now been running for over 6 months, having started C25K in February. I run 30 minutes 3 times a week. My husband now calls me a middle distance runner and as a treat has bought me a pair of bright red ( my favourite colour) running shoes.

They don't make me run any faster but when I look down I can see them peeking out and that spurs me on. At the age of 63 I need all the help I can get.

  • Ooohhhh Go Fast Fire Engine Red Running Shoes, lovely :) I'm an oldgirl too but pink is my favourite colour. Hope you continue to enjoy your running, theres life in these 2 oldies for hopefully many years yet ;)

  • Yea! Sporty red running shoes! :-)

  • Love it! Just slightly jealous of the red shoes, would make me think of Dorothy and the wizard of oz. good luck with the running. :)

  • Ooooh red running shoes. How lovely.

    I'm only on w3 but when I complete C25K I plan to buy myself a pair of lovely new running shoes as a reward.

    Enjoy the runs in your lovely new shoes.

  • It helps doesn't it. I'm a not-so-old geezer of 62 & my running shoes are mostly orange!

  • Thanks for all the comments. Bright shoes are a positive. Just look at the Olympic runners. Way to go or what?

  • yeah you'll look like a member of Team GB in those :)
