Don’t get me wrong, he loves how I’ve embraced running and he’s proud of me for how far I’ve come and how tenacious I am. He knew how much I disliked it!
But he might not be thrilled to hear that I’ve just taken delivery of a brand new pair of beauties. 😍 So? Well, I’d only just taken delivery of a similar item 2 weeks ago. 😶
I’m talking trail shoes here. Lots of my running is on trails, even more so recently, and my lovely trusty Asics (top left) must surely have seen better days - although to be fair they’ve just taken me on my Metric HM this morning with no problems whatsoever. They’re 2 years old and lots of my long run training has been done in them - so they must need retiring, right?
I ordered a pair of Brooks Pure Grit 5’s (top right) but they’re really hot, even walking. I thought I’d save them for winter trails, and did what any bonkers middle aged runner would do and ordered a pair of Brooks Cascadia 14’s (on recommendation from a friend). They were on sale too. 👏👏
And so here they are. 😍 I can’t wait to run in them, but my legs would fall off if I went out again this morning.
Mr Cheeky might not even notice .... 🤞 😅😈
