First pair of running shoes I ran through. Yes, they are still sitting on my porch and yes, I look at them before I step out the door for a run. They will not be going anywhere for awhile...they may look like their are useless but in reality, they are far from it. A key part of my motivation......I love that I ran holes in my running shoes.
If your looking for motivation, if you want a visual to help kick your booty out the door after a fulling meal with your family.....keep running till you get a pair of those. It will be hard to stay on the couch!
