I finally got new running shoes.
My feets choose Asics even though I attempted to stick them in every other brand. They tried Nike, Brooks, Saucony, Mizuno and another brand I can't remember. But in the end, my feets didn't give ME a choice. They are Asics lovers whether I want them to be or not.
Also, I'd like to mention that pink is probably the one colour in the entire spectrum that I dislike the most. Again, these shoes were on sale so pink it was. My wallet couldn't argue even though my brain thought, "yuck pink!". I need to get these things dirty NOW!
And yeah, runners meant for high mileage suck cuz they're darned expensive!
Out with the old Gel Nimbus 11, in with the new Gel Nimbus 12
The following pictures are why you shouldn't run close to 1000km in the same shoes for over 15 months. I've read that recommended shoe turn-over for the kind of mileage I do is every 4-5 months.
But I loved my shoes and I'm fucking good at procrastinating.
Now if I could only do something about that PINK!!
AHHHhhh.... sustenance on my feets again. feels pretty nice!
P.S. only a hardcore runner and bizarre picture taker like me would go so far as to dedicate an entire blog post to pictures of running shoes.
P.P.S. these shoes now have about 70km in them so they aren't as crisp and clean, it just took my lazy ass a week and half to get to posting this.
