I bought my shoes at fleet feet. You can look online and see if there's one near you. I use a watch that tells me my distance. I also use nike + with my ipod that tracks it.

Someone on here recommended Racquet and Jog for the best shoe store when I asked the same question about a year and a half ago. Check online to see if you have one nearby, I've purchased two pair of running shoes from them now and haven't regretted my decision. Excellent choice!

My New Balance store does a test that pairs me with the best fitting shoe for me.

I wear a pedometer that keeps track of my steps and my mileage. Omron makes many different kinds in a variety of prices.

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

1. Look in the Yellow Pages for running Stores or even on the web.

2. You can use the map tracker her on Spark page underthe Healthy Lifestyle/Fitness Tab - it is toward the middle of the second column

Hi Everyone,

I have to questions for you...

1) How do I find a shoe store that can help me find the right pair of running shoes? Haven't seen one around Southern CA before but maybe it's here and I just haven't noticed it.

2) How do you know how far you are running during your runs? Is there a tool you are using to track the distance or are you driving it first and seeing your cars mileage says? Just curious so I can do the same thing.

Thanks
