Don't blink. Just run.

Where training meets fandom. And everything in between.

It’s Like Christmas!

on September 11, 2013

Guess who got some new sneakers? This girl right here! Woot!


Yep, it’s that exciting!


Aren’t they gorgeous? I tried on a pair of Brooks and Asics too, but for the third straight time, I’m sticking with the Mizuno – the Wave Inspire 9. I just like the deeper heel the Mizunos have.



I can’t wait to feel comfortable enough to run again so I can check these bad boys out. I always love my first jaunt in a new pair.

In other news, the knee is feeling slightly better every day. I haven’t needed as much ibuprofen and have just been keeping up with ice. My suspicions moved from what I initially thought of as runner’s knee to more symptoms that relate to ITBS. I’ve been foam rolling 2, 3, even 4 times a day to try to work it out and it seems to help a bit. I also bought some KT Tape at Rhode Runner when I picked up my shoes because I figured it can’t hurt to try anything. I’m going by Dr. Google of course, so it could be something totally different – but it’s fairly textbook based on tons of stuff I’ve read online. So we’ll see how it feels for race day on Sunday I guess!

  1. Hope you get to run again soon girl! LOVE the new shoes!!!

  2. I have some ITBS tips on the site if you need help! I know what a big fat sucky pain that is to go through, but you’ll totally be a stronger runner afterwards and yes new shoes are like christmas!!
