New shoes...

and course they are running shoes.

My Asics shoes were worn down by the 700kms I've run in them since last January. It was time to hang them in my hall of fame. Time to get more support for my pronating feet

I had an excellent day at the Running Company store in Geelong where the attentive salesgirl had me running on the treadmill first with bare feet then in my old shoes then in new shoes. Based on Claire's recommendation and video analysis I am now the proud owner of Brooks Ravenna shoes.

Many more kilometres to come.

Wyndham Fun Run...

This is the kind of running photo I like.

we pulled out the matching City2Sea tops to look the part

We look good. We look ready.

We ran our first 10k for the year. It has taken us til the 1st of March to go this far. Fitting as this is the beginning of Autumn, the hard Summer running will become a memory. Running in hot windy weather is hard work and not my favourite kind.  But we had a good day and have got our heads together to plan out a few more runs. Next one is Run 4 Kids in just 3 weeks. Some more matching tops to come.

Last night we experienced the closest thing to a cyclone/hurricane I've ever had. The wind was phenomenal, We had branches come flying off and a back fence down. I was amazed the big gum tree didn't come down. Our other smaller trees were parallel with the ground but managed to spring back up. The sound of chainsaws and mulchers echoed around the neighbourhood today. Thankfully no injuries or major damage. Quite scary and intense.
