Passing Marker

Not until I went over to Rick's blog did I even realize that the 2008 Dick Collin's race was last weekend (a huge congrats to him and the other runners of that race!)

Funny how a year flies....

Overall, with everything but running, this has been an amazing year, and I'm thankful for that. I've really been enjoying getting to re-visit with the running community through Ed and seeing it from the other side.

On an exciting note, I finally got myself a new pair of running shoes. They're Asics Gel Cumulus (I think?) but have a wider base and help with my supination (which I think is a little piece of the leg problem). I ran 2 whole miles with Ed right after I got them, and my leg didn't feel too badly, which made me thrilled. I also talked to a woman whose husband had a somewhat similar leg ailment, and she said he got a shoe insert, which correct a slight difference of leg length and it fixed his problem. A specialist will be able to tell me for sure, but I'm feeling patiently hopeful about that idea.

Still, if I can even run just a few miles every few days, that'd be great. At the very least, it's fun to have new shoes :D

I can almost smell the new shoes from here. Good luck getting those runs in.

Always fun to have new shoes and I'm excited you're running again. That's great. Yup it has been a whole year. I still remember a bunch of us hanging at one of the benches after the race. That was a fun day.

Aren't new shoes great? It sounds like you got fitted for a pair that will work for you. I hope this will help get you back on the road to running! Keep on moving forward, Addy!
