Yesterday was a nice change of pace – had some time off/working from home. Can’t work without my helper! Dr Indiana Jones had some very important e-mails to send.
FINALLY we took Norak to get new shoes. Baby’s first big girl shoes, lol. She’s taking running seriously and it’s time we treated her tootsies. Big thank you to Big Peach Running Co. Josh was incredibly patient.
They sized her up. This was by far the most enlightening part of the fitting. She’s a dress shoe size 6.5, we share shoes in fact. Running shoe – size 8. I bout fell over when we figured out the fit. Goes to
shoe show you, don’t go squeezing your foot into something small – those little piggies need room to run.
They had her run on the treadmill as well to check her stride – she’s actually has fair form for being a newbie. I guess I do know where I get it from.
Last, socks! I personally run in cycling socks (no blisters to report since doing this!). We made sure to get her “anything but cotton.” Wick that sweat away Lycra.
For the shoe – survey says: Saucony ProGrid Ride 3. I find them very snazzy. She’ll break them in this weekend and we’ll report back.
What’s the lesson here folks at home? Get fitted sooner rather than later.
What’s your favorite thing about new shoes?
