It's Time!!! Marathon Week & Giveaway Winner!!

So I'm catching up on my blogging today and I realize... I'm going to be on a plane to Greece in less than two days. HUH??? Yep, that's right... the marathon is this weekend. THIS WEEKEND???


So after a half marathon in freeeeeezing Alaska over the weekend, yesterday was a rest day, and tonight was my LAST pre-race treadmill hill program.

I absolutely adore preppy pink!!
Guh!! What a terrible program ::swoon:
Happy to be done
So I posted on Facebook that my original pair of Newtons were being retired. I got them end of July(ish) so I estimate I have at least 400 miles on them. I had ordered a second pair, put them on, and wore them to the gym tonight. Last time they needed virtually no breaking in. Almost immediately they hurt my feet. I managed to get through my workout, but when I got home, I compared the shoes. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME!!! Curse it. Now I have to drive up to Boulder to see if they have changed the style in the last two months and try to get a pair that does not hurt the back of my heel. (Seriously, look how much taller the heel is on the newer ones on the right). I'm just happy I didn't hurt my foot or get a big blister or something. Guh. That'll teach me to wait so long to break in new shoes.

Old on left, New on right
Oh... and as for the marathon countdown????

Crap. That's soon.
And what you are all anxiously waiting for...

  5. If you don't have pain with the old shoe, I would run the marathon in them and switch after. Good luck in Greece!!! That is soo exciting!!!

  6. So exciting about this weekend! Good luck on the shoes. It was my understanding Newtons were supposed to be able to go a little more mileage wise so maybe your existing pair will hold out a bit!
