Guess who came to visit us a few days ago???
She was on her way to Indianapolis and caught an earlier flight with an 8 hour gap here in Charlotte. And she did it all just so I could have an extra pair of hands when loading the kids into the truck. It was a whirlwind trip, but it was fun.
After we dropped Angie off at the airport I went in for my second night of training at Run For Your Life. Oh, yeah. Did I mention that I got that job? Tuesday and Wednesday I had training and yesterday was my first day on the floor. We were encouraged to try on a different pair of shoes every 15 minutes or so. Fantastic! Of course I put on my beloved New Balance Minimus trail shoe and walked around for almost an hour. The downside is that now I don’t think I want those shoes.
As you can see from the diagram below, the back of the shoes are very stiff and I could tell, even from just walking and standing, that it would be cutting into my ankle pretty bad. I also read that on some of the reviews online.
So now I’m thinking that I might just go with the minimus road.
It sucks, I really liked the wide toe box and the Vibram rubber on the minimus trail. They felt so good in the forefoot. I also tried on some Saucony’s, Brooks, and the Mizuno Prophecy ($200!). I’ll try to start taking notes and write up some first impressions reviews.
