OMG… shoes.

There’s no way around it.  I destroy tennis shoes.  Not to mention that I walk like a penguin.  My dad and sister do too.  It runs in the family.

Since I decided to starting running more (a lot more)–there was an immediate need for new kicks.  Unfortunately, going to Fleet Feet on a Tuesday afternoon isn’t my favorite experience.  You see, a person who walks like a penguin typically gets gawked at in those stores.  Whenever they tell me to run across the store so they can “check my gait,” I know I run even more awkwardly, over correcting to make my feet trot in a straight line, rather than pointing outward like a obtuse triangle.

As I waited for the trained foot professional to diagnose my training needs (they really said that and I almost laughed out loud) and browsed through my normal choices: Aisics or Nike.  But ultimately, I chose these shoes.  Anyone ever heard of Mizunos?

Can’t wait to destroy them.
