Santa brought me a new pair of running shoes, a new ipod, and a sports bra. My children gave me running shorts and a new shirt. I should be ready to run. I was rather excited to run off my Christmas stocking this afternoon, but my body got in front of my mind. I saw at least every 1/4 mile go by. My shoes felt great at first, but then I think I had the laces too tight or something. At the end of the run there was something rubbing on my heel. Not sure of them yet. They are definitely lighter and feel better overall than my old clunkers however. Is there a "break-in" time or process that needs to happen? They have a great feel to them when I'm running and are so light. On the upside, I hit 1.4 miles before holding the bars today so that was really successful. I really wanted to go 4 miles again, but when I wanted to quit at 2 I knew I couldn't make it. Then, during the walk the heel rub would have made me quit anyway. I will try again tomorrow though. I am NOT giving up! I do persevere! It's nice to have so much support and people backing me. That is really keeping me going.
