You know this Cinderella has been looking for her glass slipper for a while now.
I just wished I’d fallen in love with the Vazee Pace back when they still made Ariel themed ones. Lol
Tho I do love this purple color with the green accents. In fact, these are pretty much the perfect color for my Dopey training and racing. 😁 Plus #purpleisalwaysfaster
I got them Saturday…and tested them on my treadmill for a 1/4 mile (because this way if I hated them they’d still be clean and unworn-ish). Took em through their paces – walk to normal pace to sprint pace – and they did what I asked.
But as someone who has worn Brooks for years, I still wasn’t sure I trusted them.
Until I took them on the roads Sunday.
I mean negative splits and 9 minute miles? Whoa…where did that come from.
These babies were light and fast and comfy. Lots of room for my toes and snug around my ankle bone (so no random acts of stones – YAY!) but didn’t rub.
I ran in them again yesterday morning, on the treadmill, to see if it was beginners luck, or if these really were the glass slippers i’ve been seeking.
And, with the expo just 11 weeks from today, I am happy to say i’ve found my Dopey shoes. Just need to pick up a second pair for alternating. Wonder if they make red (you know… cuz its better when it matches your costume. LOL).
To everyone out there getting Dopey with me… hope your training is going well and that you’ve also found your glass slippers.
