Running, rambling, and randomness
The shoes I wore for the Disneyland Half Marathon were a half size up from my street shoe size (which is 7.5) and two weeks later I’ve still got the blisters and black toenails to show for it – especially on my left foot. I’d always resisted going up a full size in running shoes. I just felt like my feet were swimming when I’d try them on. Finally I’ve learned my lesson and committed to going up a full size.
I took my old sneaks (the ASICS GEL-3030) over to the Track Shack and got fitted for a new pair.
I ended up with the ASICS GT 2170, which are pretty similar to my old shoe. A bit more cushion a little lighter, and, oh yeah, they actually fit right. I could do with a little less lime and a little more pink, but it is what it is!
