What a huge difference new sneakers make. I finally invested in a good pair, my first pair of Asics--the Gel Nimbus in hot pink--and not only do they make my feet feel better, but they've given me new motivation too. I couldn't wait to get to the gym to wear them. They were almost like a mental reminder in the morning for why I should be getting out of bed before sunrise. And when I'm running with my triathlon teammates I feel like I can keep going for miles--the excitement of new sneakers and the fact that these really make my feet feel better (and what I'll be wearing on race day!) keeps me going and going. If you need to jumpstart your workouts or you're just looking for a new pair, check out our bi-annual shoe review, where thousands of readers test every new pair on the market. And don't just toss your old ones, donate them to Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe (they don't have to be Nike's). Get more information at www.nikereuseashoe.com. And if you want to take my word for it, try these Asics!
