Saying goodbye to a running partner #smh

So it's time to send one of my closest running buddies off into retirement. It's not a forced retirement. There was no injury. We've run in the heat, in the rain, in the cold, ice and snow. We've run at night,.. In the morning... And for what seemed like all day long. Sorry about that time you got soaked in that puddle. Because of this running buddy, I never suffered shin splints... Although I do have a black toe ( we won't talk about that one) I'm afraid it is just that time. My shoes have put it more than 400 miles on the streets, trails and road races over the past ten months.   Now it's time to take a back seat to the next generation of running shoe. Retirement will hopefully be a little easier for this pair of shoes. I plan to take them out to walk the dog, walks in the mall, Ethan's sports practices and maybe the occasional road trip.
     So, how did I pick my replacement pair of running shoes?-- Well, it wasn't hard. I picked my old pair to help prevent knee problems. They worked so well that I got another pair. Although with a lower ride height. I went from Nike Free 5.0 to 3.0. I'm not exactly sure what the specs are... but I trust Nike. I may, one day, be convinced to leave the Nike family. But for now, I love these shoes. Hey, if anyone has any suggestions for other similar running shoes... Leave you suggestions in the comment box below. I welcome the conversation.
