I can’t believe I’m about to say this…. but my half marathon in DC is in 14 days! 14 DAYS! I feel like it was just yesterday I was saying it was 4 months away (eek!).
So while I was home in Florida this weekend visiting the ‘rents, I put on my charming smile and asked for new running shoes. They can’t resist the “Amanda smile”, so off to Fit2Run we went!
This was the first time I’ve been officially “fit” for running shoes and I did it all in a strapless Lilly Pulitzer dress :) Poor planning on my part.
I think some people got a good chuckle, at least I did, as I did laps around the store’s “track” trying out different shoes. These beauties were selected!
I got some new socks to try, too :) Little did I now how important socks are… so I got two different brands to compare!
Along with Clif shot energy gels to take on some of my final long runs before the big day!
Now if only I could remember to put my socks on the right feet….
What “gear” items do you make sure to have for a race or longer run? Any special energy boosters you would recommend I try? I’m still not completely convinced the Clif shots are the best out there.
