|When I took this picture, I dropped my husband's white headphones... It took him about an hour to help me find them. Oops.|
This isn't a rose, but looks a lot like one! Anyone know what it is? It's very pretty.
This tree lost a lot of it's flowers from the rain and breeze... and let me tell you that it's huge, waxy pedals are very slick! Don't fall when running through the flower pedals!
As you can see, my trusty worn out pair on the top have a HUGE, bulky heel. I hated trying to run in them... so, not knowing anything about shoes or running, I flocked to the sparkly ones like a raven hoarding shiny things. Aren't they nice for a run on a gloomy, overcast day? They could be... depending on your pronation type. It would seem that I over pronate, big time! My heel rolls inward and this can cause further pain in my already iffy knees and aggravate my "runner's knee". ...Which I happen to be in physical therapy for!
The garish rainbow shoes (that I am totally smitten with,) have too much "flex" and it seems that I need to have that bulky heel to provide the support I need not to roll my heels. This is made even more clear by examining my wear patterns on my shoes.... My worn out, over-loved, day-to-day shoes are worn out in the middle of the shoe while the edges still have some traction. Exactly what is desired. So.... after an hour and a half of running in all sorts of shoes (I was in denial about the bulky heel and hoped to avoid it...), I now introduce you to my new running shoes! (Drum Roll please!)
