Happy Thursday to you! A little over a week ago I shared that I got a new pair of running shoes; I thought they'd be so good, but found out the first time I walked that they caused my toes on my left foot to hurt. In fact, I didn't even make a short walk, but had to turn around. I took them back the next day, which was last week and talked to a clerk at the store. I had planned on getting my Asics brand, but tried another brand on that actually felt better. The clerk gave the brand, Saucony, a very high rating. So I thought the worst I can do is have to return them too. The great thing was the unbeknownst to me, I had a $50. credit at the store-have no idea what it was from; they said it was from 2 years ago-so my total cost was $35. So this is my new pair of walking shoes. I ended up getting one size bigger for comfort. I'd been told that with running shoes you always take .5-1. size bigger, who knew?
I am pleased to say that after walking 3.5 miles yesterday they were fine. They do look so long! However, it give my toes plenty of room. So I'm keeping my receipt and box and will return them if something changes. I've never had to do that before, but have never spent as much money on running shoes before either.
Hunter gets groomed this morning and after I drop him off, I'm meeting friends for coffee. This afternoon, I'm getting a hair cut. I'll be cutting fabric at some point, for my upcoming class in Sisters, Oregon.
I hope you have a lovely day!
Joy to you.
