My excel file got a red cell.
My first pair of real running shoes have expired, they are done.
It’s time to say goodbye to my Mizuno Wave Rider 15.
I got the running bug about a year ago.
This whole crazy, amazing, running thing started on my last birthday, when I decided I wanted to run a marathon someday.
Well, it wasn’t completely out of the blue, I had been running up to that point, about 15KM/9M a week, divided in two sessions. So nothing too hard core.
But then, a marathon? (Not that it’s happening anytime soon).
This meant more running, “serious” running. Actual training.
And I needed new shoes, made for running shoes, so I got myself the Mizunos. And loved them.
Not only because they were so light and comfortable to run in, but because of the way they looked. Pretty badass compared to my Nike walking shoes.
I wore them for every run for the first few months, until a younger model replaced them in terms of favorites. But those Mizunos still had a place in my heart, because they were my first. You know, I’m a girl, can’t help it.
And this past weekend, they reached their max. 800KM/500M.
So I’m putting them up for walking around or spin class.
Kind of sad. I might go buy me some new shoes.
Do you remember your first pair of running shoes?
Do you stop running in a pair of shoes when they reach the maximum recommended mileage?
