when should i get new running shoes?

Do I get new running shoes when my feet start to hurt?  Do I get new running shoes for every race I train for?  Do I get two pairs of running shoes--one for training--one for races?  Do I have to wait a year until I get new ones?  Do I calculate how many miles I've gone then get some? 

These are some of the questions I have as I contemplate whether or not I invest in a new pair of shoes.  After checking out the Runner's World website, I found some helpful advice.  http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-240-490--12954-0,00.html

Many things attribute to when you should purchase a new shoe:  the type of runner you are, the type of shoe you buy and the type of surface all matters. 

If you are a runner or want to be a runner, your shoes matter.  These little laced beauties are your mode of transportation and need to fit you right so that you can mentally and physically enjoy your run.  I continualy feel blessed that God has given me the ability to enjoy this sport and use the legs He gave me. :)  Thank you, God!  

Happy running!
