In an attempt to get serious about running, I finally went to a running store. They fitted me with running shoes and for the first time I am wearing Asics. I have seen what constitutes running shoes lately. I silently counted my lucky stars that I ended up with a pair predominately black and not neon orange (like two pairs she had me try on). I have run in the shoes for the last two weeks and can definitely tell that they fit my feet much better. Were they really worth double the price I normally pay? We’ll have to see.
