My Runners Carry Me Through

Here we again, another Thursday! You know what that means! It's Runners' Lounge Take It and Run Thursday with this week's theme being "Ode to My Running Shoes!" Today we get to share why we love our running shoes but there is a catch! The words in our story has to equal the number of dollars our loved ones cost! In my case, I have to tell you in 119 words! Starting now:
I am a tried and true New Balance girl when it comes to running treats for me feet! New Balance 85_ series to be exact! The one and only pair of runners I tried on back in 1997 when I first started to run were New Balance 851. They fit perfectly and worked for me right off the bat. I have worn the 852, 853, 854, 855, 856, 857 and now I am on my second pair of 858. I have never once been tempted by others! New Balance captured my heart and soul and for that, I truly remain devoted! I have a Guardian Angel attached to the lace who watches over me every step of the way!


  1. wow that was a very nice little ode to the New Balance!

    You need to sign up to be a tester!!

  2. I started my current running life in New Balance shoes. I liked them except they didn't last long enough.

  3. You're very lucky to have found the perfect shoes for your feet! I've gone through some Adidas, Fila, Asics, NB, Sauconys and now Brooks. But I still don't think one of the ones I've tried are great... sigh.

  4. You were fortunate to find the right shoes right away! It will date me but I started running in a Nike Waffle Trainer; if you google that you'll find references to the early days of the (now) Nike empire! Nowadays quite happy with my Asics 2130's.


I'm always curious to know what your comment might be!
