So, to say good bye to my old friends I usually plan a special final run. Sunday was my tapering long-ish run before the Louisville minimarathon next Saturday. Luckily, the weather in Cincinnati was wonderful so I laced up my sneakers and headed out to the hills of Ault Park. I typically don't run to Ault Park, rather I drive there and go onto the trails. However, in honor of the last run I decided to take on the hills leading up Ault Park. I have to admit, that I thought I was in pretty good shape from running hills in Hyde Park. Boy was I wrong. I didn't have to walk up any hills (yay!!But I did feel like it several times), however, this run felt harder than the 12 miler from last weekend. Needless to say, this was a great way to say good bye to these shoes for running. They will now be retired to cross-training shoes/walking the dog shoes.
So, on this Monday morning it's time to start a new journey with a new pair of shoes. I have to admit that I love the new shoe smell. So good bye old shoe friend and hello new pair!
