Have you ever wanted to look at your self in the mirror and point and say I told you so? That would be what I am doing regarding my recently purchased shoes.
First let's back up a little. Since I have become a serious runner, I have been wearing Saucony. I was at first hesitate to buy them because they were blue. I am such a girly girl and love pink on anything (except for my walls at home). I told the salesman at my local running store that I preferred pink shoes and he reminded me that I should not buy RUNNING shoes for their color. Whatever. I bought the blue shoes.
I loved them. Loved, loved them! Knowing this, why on earth would I buy a different brand? Why, well, I let my inner girly girl tell me that I could try something different that came in pink. Insert Asics Gel-1140's. Yep, I bought them. They are a stability shoe like my Saucony's and are pink! What is not to love??
They arrived last week. I put them on and thought they felt a little stiff, but trying to love them since they are pink! I took them out for a run and got a huge, I mean HUGE blister on my right foot. I still made excuses for them, telling myself that I needed to break them in. I did not wear them during my half marathon on Saturday, because I was scared to. Seriously Keri, you just bought new shoes and you are afraid to run in them?
I decided to walk in them Sunday morning while taking Miss Kya on a stroll. Um yeah, we had to turn around and go home because the shoes were killing my feet. I told Ken that they are evil shoes!
On Monday, I tucked my tail and ordered my blue Saucony's from Road Runner Sports and are sending the evil Asics back. Sorry Saucony, I will not stray again. Please forgive me and my desire to have a pink shoe.
