The Goldilocks of Running Shoes
So yesterday I went to a specialty shop where they filmed me jogging on a treadmill to analyze my gait. Then I tried on all sorts of shoes designed to correct my particular problems. I finally settled on a couple of pairs -- but when I got home, they were too big! This is insane. How can shoes fit in the store but not at home? Now my old ones are too small, the new ones too big. And if the thought of battling holiday crowds to find the perfect running shoes weren't depressing enough, my weight has reached an all-time high. What a way to start a new week!
