Not A Bloody Sock, But . . .

Here’s what happens when you run twenty-two miles in a brand new pair of shoes:

In my defense, I know better than to run that far in that new a pair of shoes but had little choice in this situation. I only realized after getting strange pains in my legs on Wednesday that my old ones had worn out. Rain kept me from breaking in the new ones Thursday. I didn’t want to run yesterday afternoon because I wanted to save my legs for this morning. Besides, this is at least the sixth consecutive time I have purchased this exact model of shoe. They had never bothered me in the past, so I figured they would be fine now.

And they would have been fine. Had I broken them in first.
