Which running shoes do you have and would you recommend it?
And as expected, someone commented to stay away from Nike, because although they are cute, they are not good running shoes.
So of course I had to comment... because I have been wearing Nike Vomeros for the last four years. (I also reiterated the other comments that she should get properly fitted at a running store.)
Anyway, the Nike comment just makes me roll my eyes. A friend once told me that the place I bought my running shoes from must not have been a "real" running store because "real" runners don't wear Nikes. I'll admit it - I was totally offended! Because hello, *I* chose the Nikes after trying on numerous brands. So am I not a "real" runner then?
According to some people, nope! Which makes me think of the other rules I break.
Real Runners Don't...
1. Wear Nike running shoes.
2. Wear running skirts.
3. Take more than 5 (4?) hours to finish a marathon.
What else am I missing?
And if you're one of those people that think any of the above, well then shame on you! ;)
(Yes, I am one of those peeps that are not really a fan of the Pearl Izumi "We are not joggers" ads. Hmmph!)
Listen, some of us are more light-hearted than the "hardcore". Don't judge me if I run a double-digit pace or wear tutus or take pics when I run.
In other news, I am up to 4 miles now. Woo-hoo!!! :D
