Ugh…worn out shoe…

I’ve had a major blister on the back of my right foot for two days. I wanted to shake my finger at June and the group run I did on Saturday. They worked me to a blistered state!

But nope – just a case of my running shoe being worn out in the back of the shoe….so worn out that there is actually a hole. And a piece of plastic is poking out.  Hmm…might be the source of the pain.

Not happy about how quickly these shoes (or at least the right shoe) gave out.  I’ve put 166 miles on them according to Nike+….although I ran in them for a few weeks before that…and I’ve occasionally worn them to the gym and grocery store. So probably closer to 200?  220?  Not sure…

I’m a bit confused how I wore out one shoe and not the other….but no time for confusion. We are packing for our trip to visit both sets of grandparents over the next 2 weeks. (We have it backwards in our family – it’s supposed to be the grandparents who live in Florida and you go there to visit them….not us. We leave Florida to go visit them. Hm…) I’ve packed all the running gear and clothes…and I’m going to have to make these shoes work. Packed some moleskin which should help – I hope. (Learned about moleskin from a friend who was a ballerina.)  I’d prefer to not have to find a running store and new shoes while we’re visiting family….

Anyway – here’s hoping I can get miles and blog posts in while gone…..with few blisters as a result!
