New Kicks

I made an uneventful trip back to Big Peach Running Co. this evening. I knew I was in good hands immediately because the sales guy was named Joe. We tried out about 5 different pairs of shoes, opting for a wider EEEE size. Spent about 10 min on the treadmill checking them out just to make sure there was no pain and we found a winner. A New Balance 1223. Came home and spent 40 min on my treadmill and they worked great. No foot or knee pain. Thanks Joe.

Vic's about the same as yesterday. Not much improvement. Really looking forward to Friday and seeing the doc.

Oh yes, one more thing. The survey I posted previously does provide a small monetary return for me. However, in lieu of payment to me I've opted for it all to be donated to the American Cancer Society.

G'night all.

Aces! Now that you've got some good shoes and tomorrow is the doc visit, you should be golden. : )

You were right Steph, the ones I had were too narrow. That's why I listen to you uber atheletes with all the experience. :)

Joe is the best. He has been helping me with shoes for the past 2 years. I adore him. And he gives great running advice. Actually, I do adore everyone at Big Peach but Joe is really my favorite.

Most Joe's are pretty awesome I think. But maybe I'm biased. :)
