|My poor, battered toes.|
The big toe on my left foot really took a beating in last weekend's 20 mile run. It's pretty pissed off. And it's sharing it's displeasure with me loud and clear.
So.....I'm still on the quest for the perfect running shoe for my big girl feet. So far I've tried a couple variations of Asics, two generations of Saucony ProGrid Guide and the Brooks Adrenaline running shoes. None have made me happy. I am left wanting.
Ooooo, that must mean that new gear is needed!!!
Off I went to TC Running Company - one of my two favorite running gear stores. (The other is Gear Running Store.) They are both on the other side of the planet from where I live but are sooooo worth the drive. I picked TC Running because it was open on Memorial Day.

I was merely illustrating a point.
But if you haven't already read "Unbroken" YOU MUST READ IT.
Anywhoo, the undershorts were a huge disappointment. They were practically transparent. No shit!! If the skirt were to catch a breeze and fly up it would be both frightening and disturbing for all involved.
On several levels.
Serious wardrobe failure.
I sent the cute skirt back.
Guess I'll keep shopping....
