New Trainers and my feet have grown again!!

Today I finally said goodbye to me purple Brooks Adrenalin GTS13s which got me round all my runnnign and training in 2013/14 and got me round New York. They now have multiple holes and they need to go to the running track in the sky.

I said to Markus that I had to throw them a way and was a bit sad, but he said "But mummy that's good, because you used them so much" - ah, the wisdom of kids.

But not so sad, I still have my trusty pair of Garmin Adrenalisn GTS14s and a little while back, I had orthotics made and bought a pair of Asics Gel-Nimus 17 in blue and pink. BUT my feet seem to ahve grown AGAIN, I am now in a size 43.5, ie UK size 9. WTF!
See below for the updated history of my trainers :-)
