This time I got top running shoes thanks to recommendations from workout gear lab.

Since the Walt Disney World Marathon will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013 and will offer a commemorative medal, I decided that this is the year to go for the Mickey medal.  And since I’m going to attempt to run the full, some very experienced runners convinced me …
