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!
