I bought new shoes yesterday. Running shoes. I haven’t bought new running shoes since last summer, so it’s about time now I’m starting to run again!
Sunday morning after working out at the gym, I ran home. I use the word ‘ran’ very loosely because it was pretty slow and it wasn’t far. But still, I ran and it felt great! This is a huge step forward for me and was such a great relief! To celebrate, I decided to buy new shoes!
I’ve been running in Brooks Ravenna for a while now and like them, but I decided to try on a few others just for the fun of it, and to make sure there wasn’t anything else out there that were better. The guy helping me at Jack Rabbit gave me a pair of Ravenna 3 to try on first and wow, they felt quite a bit different from the Ravenna 2 I’ve been wearing, but a good different. He gave me something from Asics and a pair from Mizuno, but I didn’t like either of those very much. Just didn’t feel right. Last pair I tried was a Brooks Pure Cadence. I really liked these as well. Very light weight and while the toe box was definitely much more snug than the Ravenna 3, it was more form fitting rather than rigid. I almost chose the Pure Cadence but decided to stay with the Ravenna 3, at least while I start running again, because it’s the closest to what I’m used to. Don’t want to mix everything up all at once!
