I admit it. I might have a problem. I have a lot of sneakers (9 or 10...or 12 pairs? Who's counting, though?). One might say, it was an addiction. To be fair, I'm only running in two pairs these days, my Hoka Cliftons for my easy days and my Adidas Glide Boosts for my speed and tempo workouts. While in Newport, the family and The Nun did a little shopping at the Navy Exchange. 50% off clearance items, the sign said. I only looked at the kids shoes (for my kids, not me), until The Nun handed me the box (See? It's her fault!). Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14 in my size (My REAL adult size, not a translated children's size). I don't need new shoes, I thought. I just got my Hokas a little over a month ago (and I almost completely forgot my Emergency Sneakers!). They're probably ugly...oh, white with pretty pink accents?! They're probably expensive, even with the discount. $15??!! Fine, dammit!! How can I say no? Upon further inspection, I noticed a small yellow stain next to the laces, likely the reason for the major discount. Could I live with this stain? Absolutely. I mentally tried to picture where the OxyClean was back at home. Needless to say, I am now a proud owner of a pair of Brooks (My very first pair!). I ran happy with them just the other day for an easy 6 (Actually, almost ecstatic).
