Good Weather and New Running Shoes

This is the time of year that we runners and triathletes in South Texas live for. Cool in the morning and tolerable in the afternoon.

So being as motivated as I was, the other day I meandered over to the new Sports Authority store to buy a new pair of running shoes. I felt prosperous having recently filed my taxes and came out of the process only mildly bloodied.

As luck would have it, they were offering a $99 model of shoes, the Brooks Adrenaline GTS, for 40% off. Needless to say, I snapped up a pair. Nothing avoids plantar fasciitis like a good pair of shoes. I like both Brooks and low priced New Balance shoes. Sizes 4-20 and widths 2A to 6E available. Free 2 way shipping every day!

I might wear my shorts until the elastic gives up the ghost, but I respect the good footwear.

Been there, done that. Over the years I have worked a plantar fasciitis cure, pulled muscles, and suffered sciatica. None of it was any fun but it's the hallmark of the weekend warrior that pushes the limit. Strive for success. Yo.

Oddly enough, I've never crashed my bike. Even when a hapless blond ran into me and did a face plant herself, I maintained my equilibrium. But I had best shut the pie-hole on that topic of I'll end up jinxing myself. Karma, doncha' know.
