Happy Feet

I don't know if I mentioned this before or not, but last week I went to the Athlete's Foot and got new (expensive) runners. I didn't get much chance to wear them last week because of being a melting pot of medical conditions and didn't want to wear them for the fun run on Sunday without them being worn in.

So last night I went for my first walk in the new shoes.


Oh my god. Happy, happy, bouncy feet. I wanted to walk forever except I was walking along the Merri Creek track which is real pretty during daylight hours but I can imagine being very creepy after dark. Tonight I walked home from work and still happy feet.

This rocks. I have the world's most blister and soreness prone feet, I swear. If you remember the story of the Princess and The Pea, well my feet are kinda like that princess. To buy a pair of shoes and have so much comfort is practically unknown by me.

I have not been along Merri Creek track before - I changed my walking route today...much nicer, except it passes people and their wonderful smelling BBQs - and I get home and have tuna and salad :(

New shoes = bliss!

You were right about the diary - i think i may becoming obsessed with running!

Magic shoes! Happy feet! Huzzah!

I have similar issues with shoes - what kind did you buy? I'm desperate for a good recommendation!

Hehe...there's a song by Paolo Conte called Happy Feet :-) Getting new shoes that fit is great, especially for walking/jogging!

Hey Kath. Hope you are starting to feel a bit better and sound like you are getting on top of things. I lurv the bouncy feet feeling when you get new sneakers and the athletes foot is great they way they tell you how to go. I went to the athletes foot first time I got new proper shoes and bought the ones they told me - since then I go there, get them to pick the shoe, try it on, make up some excuse about how I will come back, and then go around to some different shops and get the same shoe for usually considerably less 8-) Enjoy your shoes and your

Wooo Hooo for great shoes. I too have blister prone feet, to the point where I now do not own one single pair of shoes with a back in them except for my sneakers. All shoes are slide ons.

What a difference a great pair of sneakers make. Long may your princess feet live happily in them ;)
