Okay…so I mentioned the other day that I’ve not been running since this past Saturday due to some knee pain..ugh!! I know I over did myself that day, plus put that with the wrong running shoes and I was just setting myself up for disaster! I’ve been resting, wrapping it, putting ice on it and it is starting to feel good again….but…unless I got fitted for shoes, it will probably happen again.
I had an amazing experience there!! Adrian, my Fit Professional, was more than happy to help me find the perfect shoe! He also helped me to understand my feet more and why they are causing me the problems that they are causing. After measuring, trying on a few different pair with inserts, and some running around outside, I finally found my new running partner! The Brooks Women’s Adrenaline GTS 13. I’m in love so far!!
They are amazing!!! And it can’t hurt that they are a Runner’s World Editor’s Choice Award Winner in their 2012 issue. Once on, they felt like I was wearing nothing but still felt all the right support in the spots I needed it! I love that my ankles don’t roll inwards now and hope that this will relieve a lot of the pain in my feet, ankles, shins and back…fingers crossed 🙂
But back to Adrian…I was seriously impressed with his knowledge and loved learning a few new things. Plus, he was super easy to talk to and never made me feel uncomfortable! Plus…he loved me Injinji socks 😉 Compliments always help…LOL!
I haven’t gotten to run in them yet, besides what I ran out front of their store. My daughter and I did take our dog Franklin for a short walk last night and I must say that I felt no pain in my knee the whole time! That is HUGE!!! Can’t wait to break these bad boys in with a good run!! Hopefully this weekend….Hopefully!!
So I want to end this by saying that I’m now a huge fan of Fleet Feet and their team and will for sure be frequenting there more often for my running needs! I want to say a huge “Thank you!!” again to Adrian at Fleet Feet-St. Charles for all his help!! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!
