Each Monday, I write a Motivation Monday post, which is to help motivate me and you in terms of physical well-being, both diet and exercise. For 2011, I also am including a “no” and a “yes” to help motivate us toward being physically healthy.
No more sucky shoes
I’ve been talking about getting a new pair of shoes since at least December. The shoes I had were a cheap pair of shoes from Wallyworld that I’ve had since…I don’t know when. Not only were the soles gone, but the rest of the shoes were almost gone too. One of them had a hole in it through which I could have poked a toe. So to say it was time for me to get a new pair of shoes would be an understatement.
Yes to new balance
I’m not usually one for endorsements, but today I’m singing the praises of New Balance, specifically the now no-longer-made MX622’s. I went today to Armenia Mountain Footwear in Troy, Pa. and the saleslady there helped me pick out a pair that fit just right. Looking around online, I’ve seen the reviews for this particular shoe aren’t that great. However, for me, who’s been wearing the $10 pair of Wallyworld shoes, it’s the perfect shoe…you can ask my wife. I almost had an orgasmic experience this afternoon on the way home with them. They felt that good.
Yep, sort of like that. Sort of, but not quite. Point being: Never underestimate a good pair of shoes. Whatever exercise you’re doing, you do yourself a grave injustice if you don’t get yourself a pair of shoes that makes you feel good.
