I had many people tell me that I had been pronating while I run. I saw it in some photos that were taken of me last weekend. It was time for some new shoes and, hopefully, a fix. So what better day to go to our local running shoe store, The Starting Block, than the discount day for the Galloway runners. I run with them on Saturday, so I was able to get the sweet deal for Jenn and I. She has been having some knee issues, and we figured it was time for some new shoes for her as well.
Check them out! I got Brooks Racer ST5. I think they fit my personality, and I like the way they feel. I am trying to fix my pronation issue, so it felt a little funny on my feet at first but felt good when I was running. I did notice a difference in my calves today; they burned a little more than normal. Is that because my form was better? Anyone have any experience with that?
I have been thinking a lot about my races coming up, especially the half marathon. All my runner friends, what were some of the coolest things you saw when running your races? Things at your water stops, along the course, or people dressed up. What were the things that stood out and you remember still? I am looking for some cool ideas for a project coming up.
