Hello, friends! The topics for this week are running shoes, frustration, and Claudio!
For the past three weeks, I have made several attempts to shop for the perfect running shoes. I’m not talking about finding the perfect looking shoes, but finding the right pair that will provide me with comfort while running.
I have been shopping at a specialty store for athletes. Sometimes it takes that right person who not only has the knowledge, but also cares, to find you the right shoe. About two years ago, when I needed a pair of running shoes, I was fortunate enough to find a specialist that was able to help me find the right pair of Brooks!
To evaluate my last pair of shoes that I purchased, I went running this week and, withing minutes, I felt a pain on the right side of my foot. Not fun. The bottom line is, to prevent injuries like tendinitis and stress fractures, it’s important to wear the proper shoes while running. Every runner knows that it is impossible to complete a nice run without the perfect shoes. It has been a personal and ongoing challenge to find shoes that fit well.
Anyway, moving on to Claudio Bear, my sweet little fur baby keeps on growing! He is just about 11 months old. I felt a bit on edge on Friday, because Saturday was his first day at doggy day care, but we did our research and picked a great place with outstanding reviews. Socializing your fur baby with people and other dogs is a must at this young age.
I’m sharing with all of you our delicious chocolate chip oatmeal cookies I made tonight!
