Bunny Two Shoes

Here’s a great tip for you that I got from my local running store a couple of years ago. I was training for the marathon, and went in to get a new pair of running shoes. Anders at The Runner’s Edge suggested I buy my second pair about a month or two before I would need them.
Finding this curious, I asked why? He said that way I could start breaking them in a little at a time and it would help me to prevent the blisters and sore feet that can come packaged with a brand new pair of running shoes you’re trying to break in.
Well, instead of waiting until a month before I needed them, I bought two pairs of my running shoes that day. I wanted to make sure that I didn’t have to worry about them being out of stock of the brand and style I like, plus I wouldn’t have to worry about it later. I had a lot going on to prepare for my first full marathon; I didn’t need to be worrying about my running shoes, too!
I have been adhering to his advice ever since! In fact, I’ve been slowly breaking in a new pair in preparation for the half marathon I’m doing in mid July. The timing is perfect, as I will have just over 500 miles of running on my old shoes. By running in my new shoes only a few miles at a time, they will be broke in just enough that I needn’t worry about them causing me any problems during my half marathon, and since they’ll have less than 100 miles on them, they’ll still have all the support and cushioning I need to make the run a success.
Not to mention how crisp and bright and white they will look with my race day outfit! Yee Haw! Gotta Love That!!
How ’bout it?
