 29th April


It might just be me, but getting a new pair of trainers makes for a pretty great day in my opinion, so I have been looking forward to this day for a few weeks.

The day started off well with a 5km PB at St Albans Park Run before I headed off to Runners World in Marshalswick to pick up some much needed new running shoes.

After arriving and explaining what I was after, Henry, who looked after me, did a gait analysis to assess which type of shoes would suit my running style before bringing a good selection of trainers out for me to try out for comfort and of course I wanted them to look good too.

After testing these out I decided on some very colourful Brooks running shoes, which I am sure will help me beat my new 5km PB and look good at the same time J

New trainer day didn’t disappoint, I was well looked after and ended up with a great pair of running shoes. 

The shop has the added bonus of being located a few doors away from a well stocked bakery for if you get peckish from all that shopping! I managed to resist this time….. just
