New magenta kicks!

Nike Structure Triax+I bought some much-needed new running shoes this weekend. I’d been running in the same style of Sauconys for years. My latest pair had seen better days, and the shoe just didn’t seem to be doing the trick anymore.

So I headed to our favorite local running store — Potomac River Running (better known as PR Running). PR Running is all about customer service and finding the right fit. They have you try on shoes and watch you run on a treadmill to see how your foot lands and transfers weight in the shoe. If you have a store in your area, I highly recommend going. Having the right shoe for your needs definitely makes running more pleasant.

I tried on a pair of magenta Nike Zoom Structure Triax+ 14 running shoes, and it was love at first sight. The shoes supported my high arches and controlled my overpronation. And, they totally won style points. HOT!

I took them out for a spin today, and I swear I ran faster. I will look forward to running just so I have an excuse to wear them. And that’s a win.
