I have always been secretly jealous of my running friends that are so athletic and buy their running shoes at Luke's Locker. It is a store in a league of its own…a track so they can watch you run, walk or whatever & find the perfect shoe for you. Amazing. Very intimidating for a non-athletic girl like me. Anyway, the store has always reminded me of my friend Liz because on several occasions I have heard her say, "I went to Luke's the other day…blah, blah, blah…I love running!" I always thought she was so cool because she shortened the name to Luke's.
Well, the other day Tim & I went to buy me some new shoes for my 3 day walk. My other shoes have been giving me blisters & I needed an upgrade. We went to Luke's Locker. I was a bit nervous, but oh man was it fabulous! I had to walk for my shoe guy & then he brought me out 3 pair of sneakers to try on. All in a size 7. Apparently, I should have been buying my tennis shoes a size bigger - no wonder I have so many blisters! He laced me up & even taught me the runner's knot so they wouldn't feel big. I fell in love with the Nike shoes. They were like walking on clouds. It was a wonderful experience & now I am allowed to say "I went to Luke's the other day…blah, blah, blah…I love walking!"
P.S. Lucy chewed Tim's new Croc Flops the other day
so we had to buy him some new ones. Lucky for me, Berings was having a sale...why not throw a pair in for me too?!?! Love them!
