I finally got some new shoes!!
I say finally, because well, this has been a long time coming. I think my just-retired pair was going on about five years now, and that’s just silly.
Back in 2012, reps from Marathon shoes came to my workplace, and offered up a free gait analysis / shoe recommendation session. I was feeling kinda motivated, so I gathered up my two-year old running shoes, and went to see them.
The guy took a look at my shoes, stared at them for a bit, and asked me how long I’d had them. After I told him, he looked a little incredulous, and told me…. “You don’t need new shoes yet. These have most of their tread still..”
And three years later…!
