I’ve reached a dubious milestone in my running endeavor.  I’ve officially worn out my first pair of running shoes.  I got a pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 7 shoes last August and have worn them every time I’ve ran since.  I noticed this past week or two that when I’ve been pounding the pavement I’ve really been pounding the pavement.  It feels like the cushioning has just disappeared.  I ran 4 miles Friday and now my shins are hurting and I actually had some knee pain.  I never have knee pain.

So I’m waiting for my replacement pair to arrive.  I was supposed to run 7 miles today but I don’t see that happening.
