Stopped at The Running Company with my uncle Ron. I am much more impressed with this company. its not that i don't like Metro, but i don't think they are set up for big feet and now that i have been to another store, i feel like i got better attention. RunCo. had me put on a 15 Pegasus (very neutral) and run on a treadmill and videotaped me. then after a minute of running, i got to watch my steps in slow motion. i got a very different analysis rather than looking at the bottom of my old shoes. so he brought out 2 more pairs of shoes and i ran in those and i really like the Asics GT-2140. didn't like the color but there are options. so i really knew that i wasn't buying but told the guy helping me that i was just starting to look and he got it that i wasn't buying but i still asked him a couple questions and he still brought out 2 more pairs for me to try. i wished that i didn't have this in store credit to use at Metro because i am much happier with how in depth they were at the Running Company, but it is what it is. Maybe the next time i will buy from them. Sometime next week i will call and ask them to order my new shoes and when they are in, i will go swap shoes. that's all for now.
