New trainers

Last week I ordered some long overdue new trainers from the internet. They are a type that I have worn before and when I saw that they now did them in WIDE I was thrilled and just had to have them.  I was very excited and spent every day eagerly checking the post for them. When they did not arrive as promptly as I’d like (I don’t do waiting!) I called the suppliers. The Glaswegian on the other end of the phone had some interesting advice. He told me that the trainers had been sent in the post second class. When I told him they had not arrived he asked if I had received a card stating I had a parcel to pick up. Now I know I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer but No I had not had a card. Then he suggested I go down to the parcel depot to check if they had something for me as apparently sometimes the posties run out of cards to put through the door. At this point I had to laugh and told him this did not make sense (I felt I was getting fobbed off) how I asked, if I was not left a card would the post office expect me to know to pick it up, perhaps I should use telepathic energy?  He had no answer for that!

Oh Asics where are you?

Finally after a week in transit the Asics 2150 Wide arrived yesterday and they are beautiful! So this morning saw me being startled awake by the alarm for an early morning 5 miles. Trainers felt good, could definitely feel the extra support and the bunion was well happy it had space within the trainer rather than hanging over the edge!

Hope you are ooh and aahing aren’t they gorgeous?

 Happy Easter and happy running to all of you!


About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    They are indeed lovely! I know girls are supposed to like shoes, but I just LOVE trainers 🙂
    I have a pair for dog walking, another for running at work, another for BMF, my special pair for races and long runs, and a ‘pretty pair’ to wear with jeans – LOL

    Gorgeous picture — especially the lighting and background tones. Asics should hire you as a stylist!
