New Shoes

Looking down at Rusty's running shoes

Finally! The ground has dried up a little.  Running in the countryside no longer involves running through deep puddles, or sliding in thick mud.  So, I’m retiring my old very muddy pair of shoes.  I walked in that pair of shoes for years before I gave in and started doing a bit of running.  And this winter they’ve witnessed hail storms, landslides, and a lot of wet dirt.

I bought my new shoes from the local running store, which was so much more fun than buying them online.  I even had a go on a treadmill (how have I got to 31 and never tried one before?!) This is the first pair of shoes I have purposefully bought for running.  I’m looking forward to more days running on dry tracks, through green meadows, with only the odd April shower.  I might still be a newbie, but I think this running habit might be sticking…

    Oh how I missed running during winter in Switzerland! Can’t wait to go outside on a regular basis again. Wish you a lot of fun with your new shoes, I bought mine at a local store too.

  2. I would love to make running a habit – the idea of it really appeals to me as a way of keeping fit, but I have never been able to run comfortably. Any tips greatly appreciated!

    • It is certainly a fun habit to have! I found it uncomfy to start. Good shoes, a running buddy, and an easy pace all help.
      Do check out my other posts under the running tag where I’ve got a few more tips!
      Thanks for stopping by. :)
