Three Things Thursday

Edit: I screwed up and deleted the photos linked to this post. I suck. Carry on.

1. I tried to cheap out on shoes and buy a pair online. They were my regular brand and my size, but they didn't fit that great when they got here. I tried to soldier through it, but I finally sucked it up and went to Dick Pond Athletics to buy real shoes from a real running store. I found a clearance pair of Saucony shoes and they are awesome. They're more minimalist than I thought I'd like, but I feel fast. It might be a placebo, but I don't care.

2. I'm racing again this weekend. If you're running the Cosley Zoo 10K (or 5K), let me know! I'll be doing this one solo and would like a buddy on site.

3. I made more of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe today with peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips. They're still rather awesome, but dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips are the best. The slightly bitter taste is perfect with the buttery dough. I still ate three, though, so it's not like they tasted like dirt.

Don't cheap out on shoes! Your feet will pay! What kind do you normally wear? Have you used Sauconys before?

Have a fun 10K! I want to do a real Zoo run someday! :)

Are those Saucony Kinvaras? If so just beware that there is a big difference in the heel-toe drop ratio (4mm compared to 10-12mm of most other running shoes) compared to what you have been wearing. I love my Kinvaras but you need to gradually get used to them as they will use your calf muscles more and your achilles may feel it, too. You don't want to get sidelined with an injury!

Uh oh, ErikaS, they totally are. I had no idea until I looked at them at your suggestion. So far, my legs feel OK, but my defective toe is still bothering me. @kilax, I normally wear asics.
