Out with the old and in with the new... Meet my new shoes, The Saucony Triumph 6! Oh they just sound like winners (or finishers I should say, I don't have a chance to win a marathon I am in the business of finishing). I fell in love with these little babies at Run-n-Fun in St. Paul, which I might add is runners paradise and it was all I could do not to buy everything in the store.
I did get some other much needed gear... including a new waterproof running watch (lime green), some Runderware as I like to call it, running socks which keep your feet dry, and Energy Gels for long runs (Chuck and I are going to experiment with which ones we can stand... it is pretty tricky to eat a packet of goo while you are running without feeling nauseous) These all may seem like little things but they make a huge difference!
Just to keep you up to date we are in week 4 of training already, that means only 13 weeks left until the big race. Our long runs are up to 10 miles... and total mileage so far for training is 49 miles!!
