We took a hike to the peak of Iron Mtn. I was proud of my son. He made it up & down only stopping a few times. Then I bought some Brooks Defyance 2’s. They felt good on. I just need to put my ‘super feet’ in them. They are going to be my shoes for the marathon. I know I shouldn’t wear new shoes with taking then for a test drive, but it that or my knees. There is no more shock absorbers in my old ones anymore. I’ll be fine. Maybe I’ll take then for a jog around the block before the race. 😉
