This week is the 7th of a 12 week training program to get ready for running my first half-marathon here in Columbia, SC on April 12th. To be on the safe side, I went to a local running store this weekend to get fitted for some new shoes. Two hour runs are long enough that I want to make sure I'm taking care of my feet, so an investment in good shoes seems well worth it.
"Brian, what's the deal?" you say, "Did you also cut out the floorboards of the Miata and plan to drive around Flintstones-style? Why do we care about running?"
Running has been my main source of exercise and I've managed to shed almost 10 pounds in 2014 so far, which to me, is the cheapest way to take weight out of the car. Also, while having my feet measured, I can now officially confirm my right foot is larger than my left. SCIENTIFIC evidence I was born to drive.
