So I've been searching high and low for a fresh new pair of my trusty running shoes (Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8s) in my not-so-usual size (11.5 EE) and I haven't been able to find them anywhere. And the marathon is in a week.
They finally appeared on Zappos.com last night when I checked just before leaving work for a company event. So I ordered a pair. At 5:30 pm.
And I'll be damned if they weren't sitting on our receptionist's desk by the time I got out of my morning staff meting today. How amazing is that?
So now I can wear them tomorrow for my last 8-mile run and they'll be all broken in for the marathon on the 12th. And fresh running shoes = fewer injuries on 26.2 miles of pavement. Woo-hoo!
