This past weekend, I got some new running shoes. I realized, when I was stretching before the night race early last month, that the bottoms of my shoes were so worn out that they were slick! So I went on Saturday and bought a new pair of shoes.
My old ones were okay, but they rubbed a little too much on my little toes, so I got a new pair that was wider in the foot. The problem is that they are also wider in the heel which makes me feel a little like my foot is going to come out of the shoe, unless I tie them in a special way, the runner's tie. (By the way, can I just say, that website is cool and there is some awesome math behind shoelaces and tying knots/bows! Also, there are some really interesting ways to lace up your shoes there.)
Anyhow, I'll let you know how they work out for me.
