the break up…

Dear Mizunos,

I’m sorry but it is time. We have been together for nine months but it is just not working out. This past weekend was the last straw. During my Sunday run, I had to stop at 6.5 miles. You caused me extreme pain. This is not the first time. I loved you as much as I could, but in the end, this is best for both of us. We shared so many good times, The Great Aloha Run, The Ford Island Run, so many great Sunday mornings. I will never be able to replace the memories we had, yet I need to move on. You will never be forgotten.

There is someone else though. I would rather you hear it from me than for you to find out from someone else. It was all very sudden. I went to Runner Route and it was love at first sight. Her name, Ascis. She has a lot more arch support and ample padding around the ankles. Yes Mizuno, you have been with me for a while, yet Asics have a lot more to offer. She has beautiful blue reflectors that match my running outfits.

I went running with Asics today and I really could feel the difference. She hugged my feet tightly and I felt like I was running on air. My feet no longer feel pain. It is a new beginning. I am excited to see where Ascis and I go. We will travel far and track many miles. Know that you will always be in my heart, and closet.

Love,
Jenn Feet
