I finally had to break down and buy a new pair of running shoes yesterday. It always pains me to plunk down so much money for a pair of shoes, but I know it’s just what I gotta do. Mine were so worn down I could actually feel the ground under my feet the past few times I’ve gone out for a run, and my arches were starting to kill me. Not good.
So I went to the store yesterday looking for a normal-looking pair of Asics (my favorite brand) and let me tell you — they were not easy to find! Who decided all of a sudden that we all want to wear neon green and fluorescent orange and pink while we’re running? Call me an old lady, but I am not feeling all these crazy shoe colors!
I ended up with a really nice pair of Asics Gel Exalt. I’m not a huge fan of white (and of course they had to throw in some bright blue and neon green on the tongue), but they were super comfortable, and at least I won’t feel like a clown while I’m wearing them.
Whadya think? Too boring? Do I need to get over my issues with neon shoes?
And the really big question — have I officially turned into an old lady?
