So, this weekend Team Myles headed to Mic Mac Mall to kick-off Shoe Mountain and Socks for Soles. It was great to help celebrate such a good initiative and lots of folks arrived with gently used shoes and new socks in-hand! We also got our AMAZING Team Myles shirts from our friends at The Running Room – don’t they look awesome?!
After kicking off Shoe Mountain, we headed through the mall and off to Shubie park for a run. Some of the team made it 8km (HOLY!) some of us only made it 6k (I’m slow, and I’m okay with it), but it was a BEAUTIFUL day and it was perfect weather to run in. I got some VERY painful shin splints about 2k in, so I slowed down, walked, stretched, and just took it easy. I ran as much as I could, and walked the rest. I also ran into Heather, since I always lose most of the group (you guys are SO FAST!), and we went the last 3k back together.
Once we got back to the parking lot, I tested out my NEW Brooks shoes!! They are AWESOME. So comfy, so new, and SO pretty! Since I have really wide feet, I often just get plain ol’ black and grey shoes, but these, these are beautiful!
Tonight is our “test” run. I’ll be doing the 5k with Erin, and maybe a few others while the rest of the team does the 10k route. Can’t wait to run tonight!
