Juneathon Day 20 – A Run And A Pair Of New Shoes
DAMMIT, I thought, when I woke up. I’d had a sleepless night and when I woke up I thought I’d slept too late to make it on time to meet up with a group to go on a bike ride to the seaside. So I jumped out of bed to get on Facebook and hoped they’d see my ‘sorry I’m not going to make it on time’ message before they left, then I realised it was Saturday, not Sunday and I didn’t have to be anywhere. Duh.
But, I did have to run 6 miles and so I drank my tea and got into my running gear and attempted to run 6 miles. My ‘attempt’ turned into a bit of a stroll, listening to my music but at least I made it out the door.
When I got home, I decided because I’d ran 6 miles, my running shoes were probably worn out and therefore I needed a new pair. I pondered this out loud on Twitter and Twitter agreed with me:
@jogblog Definitely. And anything else that catches your eye.

And so I cycled off to the Designer Outlet and bought myself some pretty pink Asics Cumulus 15.
I’m not entirely convinced they’re bright enough or pink enough though. What do you think?
Running: 6 miles
Cycling: 4 miles
