I’ve been running for more than a year now. And seriously running (for me, that means I prepare and train for my races) for ten months. My dearest Newton has been my first companion when I ran my first 21k.
After two dead toenails, I started to experiment on other shoes, which is seven as of last count. I had to empty two levels from my shoe rack to give way.
Two weeks ago, I saw my Newtons again. It’s been so long huh! I decided to bring it with me for my tempo run. (Probably, we can start all over again?) I was fine with it until I have walked about five meters from the car. It felt so tight and uncomfortable. Good thing that I always keep two shoes in my car, I changed before my toenails started to lose their breathing space again.
I guess it’s time to say goodbye to my Newtons. =( For Good!
Now, there is enough space in my shoe cabinet for another one.
Should I get a second pair of K-swiss K-Ona ? Probably the lime green
This is the one who has travelled with me through the roads of Pasuquin, the climb to the Burgos Lighthouse, the trail to the Rock Formation, the dirt roads along the Bangui Windmill and the neverending paved and ashpalted road of Bangui town proper until I reach the finish line of Pagudpud. Tried and tested!
Or a new Asics DS Trainer
I’ve heard good reviews and they seem to match my preferences. Too bad, they don’t have my size at Second Wind and no stocks at the Greenbelt branch.
Definitely, must have one – right before September ends!
