Happy Outdoor Wednesday to you! Yesterday was a great day~I took my neighbor shopping with me, I needed some new tennis/walking shoes. Another close friend who always wears Oasics told me that getting a running shoe is better because they are lighter than a tennis shoe. I have worn Oasics for several years now and have been happy with them. So, I went to a running store to get advice and to be fitted properly. Firstly, a very nice young college girl was working and although very sweet, she didn't have a lot of knowledge about running shoes except her own preferences. When I was young, I always had pronated knees and ankles; that has changed over the last several years though. I asked about prices and the majority of shoes were over $140., there were two pairs on sale for $120. O.k. so here is where I become very frugal/cheap. Since I'm not a runner and don't do 50 mile fundraisers, I don't feel I need such an expensive shoe,(after all, we are going to Sisters in a few weeks and I'd rather have some money to spend there). I wasn't impressed with her knowledge, so we moved on to Sierra Trading Company. I have to say I love that store! After trying on three different brands and price levels, I choose this pair. They are Brooks Launch 2 Road Running Shoes.
I didn't sleep well last night, so am skipping walking this morning with my friend and may just go on a bike ride after breakfast. Tonight I get to take Copper and our grandson to dog training, so I'll try to get some photos.
I hope you get some time outdoors, even if just to smell the flowers.
