New Shoes

After another gruelling night shift, I walk a mile and a bit from work to Saltley to catch a bus home. I made my way along the canal getting off just past Saltley Viaduct and was soon waiting for the arrival of my chariot.

A bus proclaiming that it was not in service pulled up at the bus stop. “That’s going to be awkward when MY bus comes along”, I thought. Just then, the driver pushed some buttons and the ‘Not in Service’ became 94 – the service I was waiting for.

I clambered on board and was soon home and tucked up in bed.

On awakening, I discovered that my better half had been to the Post Office and collected my new trail running shoes.

My current pair of inov8 trail talons are coming to the end of their useful life and liking them so much, splashed out on another pair, this time is black and red (very red).

I’m sat at work, filing in my blog and breaking in the new shoes. Tomorrow morning, after work, I will run an easy couple of miles out and back along the canal to christen the new trainers before going home.
