Week 1 (of 18): Welcome to Marathon Training

In honor of the first week of marathon training, and a gift card burning a hole in my pocket, I visited Fleet Feet last night.

I left spending about double what I thought I would [that's pretty standard], including a pair of Nike Lunar Glides.

I haven't ran in Nike shoes since? Early college?

My shoes are dark gray [cool, they aren't white] and bright, 1992 neon pink soles [hello hypercolor shirt]. I am excited to be able to drop the Nike+ sensor into the sole of the shoe.

I also purchased a pair of Zoot compression socks. Jim swears by them, and I don't think that guy's guided me the wrong way on gear yet. I didn't know you could pay that much for 'socks!'

I'm testing out the shoes this evening. I hope it's a happy marriage.

I am finding myself in a similar situation, joining a rugby team for the first time since college. It is certainly daunting, and I am excited and nervous at the same time. Best of luck in your marathon training, Laura!
