|Seemingly genius, right????|
I even made a return trip upstairs when I saw the temperature today (20*F, feels like 13) to get an extra layer for both the top and bottom.
I ran my 14 miles with my running group, it was cold, but still glorious. The trail was icy, but no one fell. The sun was periodically shining through the trees. We were all talking, laughing and enjoying life. All so innocent.
|Sounds about as perfect as these homemade cookies Mommy!|
And that's when it happened. I took off my shoes and saw, horror of all horrors, THIS.
|Horror of all horrors!|
All through my shower, I couldn't stop thinking about the Great Shoe Mix-Up. The GLORIOUS, HOT shower. I swear, there is nothing more fantastic than a really long, really hot shower after a cold long run. But, I digress.
I came up with a solution. Hot showers are good like that. Immediately after my shower, I sat down with my launches and my Newtons and switched out some shoelaces. I took the shoelaces from Newton 2 and switched them with the shoelaces on Launch 4. Now, I'll have to be even MORE blind to make a similar mistake.
The blue on the red looks a tad silly, but the yellow on blue, not so bad.
|Lady, THAT is not a crisis. THIS is a crisis.|
Do you have more than one pair of running shoes? Do you rotate as I do? How do you tell them apart?
Has anyone else have this experience: realizing how much you didn't fully appreciate hot showers until a hot shower post a cold run?
Anyone else ever run with a mismatched pair of shoes? At least for me, they were the same model and color, so perhaps, I am the only one that noticed! Well, until this post anyway.
