Not that I am going to run, mind you, but because I heard that they make good shoes for the shoe challenged. I hate shoes. I wish we could be barefoot all the time. But shoes must be worn on many occasions. They are especially helpful when walking on rocky trails and in hard places. So I bought a pair of shoes that offer support for my freakishly wide feet with high (and I do mean high arches).
I finally wore them outside today, being relatively sure that I was not going to return them.
Off I walked. I walked on the trail by our house that runs along a canal/flume type waterway. I walked further that I ever had on the trail - and didn't even notice until I was at the end of the line - and I am crediting it to those new high end running shoes.
(I would insert a photo here of the waterway, but I still can't find the cord that connects my camera to the computer and my handy dandy work MacBook does not seem to have a place to insert cards and my home computer was made before there were cameras.)
That's my Thursday Victory (that and being very glad that I am not afraid of dogs because I ran across a black Lab and Great Dane on my adventure - who were sweet - but would have been quite scary if I were afraid of dogs).
Thanks for viewing and enjoy your almost Friday!
