I ended up with a pair of Aasics! This girl actually let me run around the block outside to try these out!
I laced up my new shoes and ran 4.6 miles with the hubs and puppy. The new shoes felt good at first, but my feet started to hurt a little and my toes got numb about half way through. Is this just because I ran that far in BRAND SPAKIN NEW shoes? Any advice on this anyone? I feel like maybe I should break them in a mile or two at a time, not 4 at a time, but I'm not sure.
Also freakish fact about me: My right foot is half a size bigger than my left!
The girl at the running store told me that if I worked on my abs and core that my hip flexor might start to hurt less....so after the run we went to the dog park (Puppy-Love needed some play time) then the gym! And guess what? THE GYM GOT A FOAM ROLLER!!!!!!!!!!! It was laying in the middle of the floor calling my name! So I foam rolled....and grinned like an idiot the entire time! Thanks Janae for the foam roller video!!!
I did abs....abs....and more abs. I'm not going to be able to get out of bed tomorrow! No pain no gain right?

Do you keep a running journal? I bought a purple notebook yesterday to start writing down my runs!
Also how do I tag someone in my posts so you can click on their name and link back to their page?
