Okay, with ten days left before my next marathon, I decided to purchase a new pair of running shoes; I kept to the same TYPE of shoe — the Nike Dual Fusion. I go through a new pair of running shoes every two months due to the amount of miles logged. I have already conducted 30 training miles this week, with roughly 40 more to go; it is my intention to do my last long run today of 21 miles. In preparation for that trip, I needed to wear my new pair to class today in order to break them in. Thus, I declared today casual Tuesday.
The lady at the gear store told me that she thought this design of shoes is not best for the 26.2 mile race; however, I have tested them and found them to do the trick. I am searching for any and all things to get me hyped about this race. Based on my time, I am a low-end “A” list runner…which is great; I need to get to the top of that “A”list, where I belong.
