Don’t run a marathon in brand new shoes…….or so I’ve heard.
Sometime on my long run last Sunday or the two runs I had this week the gel in my right shoe popped, or sprung a leak or somehow lost all the pressure. It was feeling weird on my run Thursday but I didn’t really think anything of it.
I discovered the “flat tire” this morning. Just before leaving to go downtown and sign up for the run tomorrow.
Because I can’t run in these and will be returning them. I bought a ridiculously expensive brand new pair of Hoka shoes today at the expo. Then I wore them all day around the expo, Costco and Trader Joes in an effort to “break them in” by tomorrow.
I am a diehard Nike girl. I have tried other types but always come back to Nike for running. It is just an added bonus that the Nike chip in the shoe will talk to my iPod or iPhone and give me data on my runs. There is nothing more motivating to me then the data. I don’t know how or if I’ll be able to put the chip in these new shoes but I am running 13 miles in brand new shoes tomorrow.
We are meeting at the train station at 4:45 tomorrow morning. If all goes well the shoes will be perfect and I will done and back on the train and home in time to lay on the couch for the afternoon football games.
