There is nothing quite like a brand new pair of running shoes. Especially when they are the same as the old running shoes except better -- fresher, whiter, and gentler on the feet. Here's the thing about runners -- we find a pair of shoes we like and we stick with them, pair after pair of the same shoes. And here's the thing about a runner who hates change (read me) -- getting a brand new pair of running shoes that are the same as the old running shoes not only feels good for the feet, it isn't scary at all. And I can embrace that.
