Dave took one look at my feet and said I needed a higher stability shoe. What?! Ben just told me that I needed a less stable shoe. He must have been smoking crack that day. That's ok, we all have "off" days. No hard feelings. I'm just sad that I wasted two pairs of shoes.
Dave brought out two shoes for me to try: Brooks Adrenaline and Saucony Omni. He said the Omni is like the Hurricane that I've been wearing. I've tried on the Adrenaline at least 4 times and every time, I don't like it. Yesterday was no exception. The Omni, however...ahhhh, it felt like home.
I asked about the black toenails. If I get black toenails in the Hurricanes, will I get them in the Omnis too? Dave told me to take my socks off so he could look at my feet. OK, dude, you asked for it. I have a birthmark AND a black toenail on the same foot. Really, it's HOT! Dave didn't seem phased. I stood in front of him and he said "Look at what you're doing." What? Apparently, I curl my toes. Just standing there I curl my toes. Most likely, I curl my toes while I run too. Aha. It's all becoming clear to me. It doesn't matter what shoe I wear. If I run far enough, I will have black toenails. Awesome.
|Here they are. I feel confident that these are keepers.|
What's your favorite running shoe?
Have you ever run in the Omnis?
