New shoes and Some Accountability

What makes every runner happy?  A new pair of shoes, of course!  I pronate pretty bad (my ankles roll in when I step), so I have to use some shoes with pretty good support in them.  I’m not one of those runners with 20 pairs of running shoes, so I had logged a pretty good amount of miles on my shoes.  I finally made it to my local running store and got a brand new pair of Brooks Adrenalines!!  I love these shoes.  They are just the newer version of my old shoes, but they are NEW!  I decided to just stick with what is working for me, because I have luckily never had any real pain from running.  That definitely has to do with the fact that I am using the right shoes.  I ran a 5K a few weeks ago in a pair of running shoes without the support and my feet were killing me afterwards.  I won’t be doing that again.

I also just borrowed a different brand of jogging stroller too.  I have one, but I didn’t get an all out expensive one since I didn’t think I would be going on that many runs with my daughter.  Little did I realize that I would be taking her on almost ALL of my runs.  I took out the stroller for a try this morning and what a difference.  It was so much smoother and the adjustable height of the handle was much needed since I’m a little on the short side. I was even able to do a little speed work with it, which I desperately need.  Now to start putting a fund together to get me a Britax BOB jogger.  Oh the free sport of running! The new shoes and new to me jogging stroller:
