Happy Tuesday! Here’s how last week finished out:
I failed on my 18-miler Saturday. I procrastinated too long and didn’t get out the door until after 10am. It was already 90 degrees! I made it about 5 miles before my head started pounding and my stomach began cramping up (and not my usual tummy issues), so I figured it best if I head back home. Then, instead of finishing up on the treadmill, I opted for some retail therapy at Road Runner Sports ;)
They didn’t have 2 of the shoes I wanted to try on (PureConnect and PureGrit), but they did have the PureFlow 4 which I’m happy to report are WAY better than the 3s and about as close to the 2s as I’ll probably ever get! However, I didn’t get them (yet). This will probably sound stupid but I didn’t care for the color choice they had there! And actually, after checking online I don’t really care for ANY of the color choices :(
After trying on about 5 or 6 different shoes, this is what I had it narrowed down to:
I sigh every time I look at those PF 4s! If only they were black, instead of blue…
And so I ended up with another pair of Newtons instead. Those are the Distance IV and they are really light and comfortable. And bright yellow!! Yay!
I didn’t end up buying them from the store though. They had a problem with my VIP status and while the manager was on the phone with headquarters I looked up the shoes on Running Warehouse. They were over $30 cheaper! So what could have been close to $200 (I also had some socks picked out) only cost me $130. That means I still have a little extra money, and Hmmm, tomorrow is Prime Day on Amazon. I wonder if those PF 4s will be on any kind of special? ;)
