Nov 29, 2010...3.23 miles in 36 minutes...48* windchill or 43*...gear: headband, buff, LS Chill Chaser under a Reebok tech shirt, gloves, 1/4 zip fleece, gloves, buff, shorts, Chill Chasers tights, hydration belt, tunes and I was WAYYYYYY overdressed!!!
Well, I decided to give a short recovery run a try this morning in my dead shoes and it seemed fine. I didnt even notice the hole at ALL. I have been so used to cold mornings that I was overdressed and was SO wishing that I could have taken off my LS shirt, but I wore it UNDER my tshirt so I was out of luck. Thankfully I was going slow enough that I didn't catch on fire or anything.
So. Hubby called Nike for me today and here's the scoop. I can send the shoes back and file a claim. They will either A) send us a voucher for the price of the shoes when we bought them or B) deny our claim and send the shoes back. BUT all of this will take 21 days.
So I could be without shoes for a month or more.
My dilemma is this...I got a pair of Air Max 2010's yesterday for $89 (gotta love shopping the 'big kid' shoes!) but I dont LOVE them the way I did my 2009s. I am nervous to wear them as I dont think Finish Line would take them back after they have been worn...anyone know?
So my options are this:
1: send the shoes back and use the 2010s in the meantime (will only do if FL would take them back if they didnt work)
2: send the shoes back and were my Air Max's I wore BEFORE I got the 2009s and run all short easy runs (however those are about 6 years old and I was only running 5-8 mpw before I got the 2009s)
3: plunk down $130+ for some new 2009s
4: dont send the shoes back and hope the 2010s work
I know I could get fitted at a running store...would THEY take shoes back if they dont work?
I am just really partial to my nice cushy Nikes...
