|Me at a race last season|
I started running when I met my husband in 2004 and we needed to do something together. He loves sports so do I so we decided to run together. I can still remember the rainy April sunday morning when we laced up our non running sneakers and went out and we could not run more than one block and we walked the rest of the mile home.
Now, with a toddler, we no longer run together but run on different days and it still feels like we run together because we talk about timing, miles, and stamina. It is one sport that I can truly say we have grown to love. Not only does it keep our body humming, but it keeps our spirits up and draws us closer as a couple.
As much as I love it, I do not like buying running sneakers. It takes me over a month of review to decide on my running sneakers. I usually try to buy the same sneakers I wore the season before but can never find it so I agonize over model, price and quantity. Each season I normally buy 2 pairs but I decided to buy just one pair this season of Asics 2150 because I only need it for racing days.
The beautiful thing I found is that I can donate my sneakers and I have a box of sneakers to donate. So today, I will find where and how to ship the sneakers so I can get my other high of giving! I am blessed with legs that can move and love the opportunity to help someone protect their feet with my sneakers.
