today thomas and i went to road runner sports and got professionally fitted for running shoes. i have normal arch feet so i tried on stability shoes. thomas has flat feet so he tried on motion control shoes. we both ended up getting a pair of asics (mine was the kayano 15). we couldn't wait to test run them and so we ran 4 miles around the block. we both love our new shoes. they are lightweight and comfy. we have no foot pain at all. the price tag is a bit steep but well worth every penny! mine was $115 after signing up for membership and lucky for us we dropped in during their annual sale so we got additional discounts!
US half marathon on november 1 should be blister-free and smooth sailing. bring it on!
