Since I've been running in my current shoes for quite awhile now, we took a ride over to Fit-2-Run to try on some new pairs.
I had my arch tested, ran on the treadmill, and tried on a few of the popular brands, but in the end, Asics still won my heart for comfort...
I've been running and exercising in Asics, and I also wear the same brand for my 12 hour shifts as a nurse, so I figured--why fix something that isn't broken?
I ended up with the new Asics GT-2170.
I went with a darker shoe than I normally go for; that also has bright wild colors. I figure 1/2 marathon training is out of my comfort zone, so I went with something different!
It was until I got home and took a better look at the shoes that I realized the numbers...2170...217...MY BIRTHDAY NUMBERS! That's a good sign in my book!
