Starting a New Years Resolution with the Help of

Running Shoes for Everyone at

It’s that time of the year when we make New Year’s Resolutions.  A wise person once told me, don’t make any resolutions you can’t keep.  So I decided to make a resolution that I would not eat Sardines this year… Ha!  No but really, now that I’m in my 40s I realize that I need to take better care of myself, especially my heart.  So I am determined to get up and move more in 2015 and take up running.  I admit it’s a lofty goal, but even if it just turns into power walking, I know it’s better than just sitting in my desk chair.  I realized though that to be successful in that goal I needed a good pair of running shoes, my cheapy ‘fashion’ sneakers weren’t going to do the job and perhaps would even have me quitting because of painful feet.

While certainly I have about five pounds to shed thanks to the holiday season, my real desire to take up running is more for general health purposes than anything.  This decision that a “New Year” could be the transformation of a “New Healthier Me” has been helped with the generosity of whom sent me a pair of Saucony Ride 7 to achieve my goal.  I’ve never had a ‘real’ pair of running shoes before and so did not quite know what to expect when putting them on (and really was a bit apprehensive about getting sneakers online when I had not had the chance to try them on first).  But with the first short jog I took I was in love with them!  From their light weight to the breathable fabric, and the fun color, they are perfect to start my journey to being a runner.

The Saucony Ride 7 running shoes feature POWERGRID which provides heel-to-toe cushioning.  Something that as a new runner I’m really appreciating 🙂  The outsole has great durability and cushioning as well.

Paired with my Fitbit and wireless headphones, I’m ready to conquer the running paths in our local park.  The day after I received my new Saucony Ride 7 running shoes, I headed out for a 2 mile run (which ended up as more of a fast walk/jog).  I was amazed at how comfortable they were.  When I came back home I didn’t have fatigued feet nor did I have that “pinched” feeling in my toes that I have often had in other running shoes.
