On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

I need to get in the zone again and I am not feeling that! Should I take the day off or see if today is the day I feel great? You are definitely not alone!
My problem is the 80 degree weather I had planned on doing hills today, but with dh not being able to run with me and the heat I totally said screw it and did 5 easy miles. Course I felt dehydrated the whole time
I may be talking to your podiatrist friend yet.
I actually tried a couple of motion control shoes a while back and did not like how they fit my feet--my arches are on the flat side, but not completely flat (yet). My 1222s are definitely my favorite shoes--lighter weight, more cushioned, and not as stiff as the 857 (which NB calls a "high stability" shoe and it really looks a lot like a motion control shoe, especially through the heel). The 767s are nice and lightweight, but definitely my least stable shoes.
The annoying thing is that my arch issues were almost completely gone on Sat., but now have returned. I may be talking to your podiatrist friend yet. I'm starting to wonder if orthotics might be in my future.

If you like the 1222, you should try the Saucony Grid Hurricane. Also, there are a bunch of good over-the-counter orthotics that might help as well. New Balance has a Stability insole which seems to have worked for some of my lower-arched friends as has the Lynco L420 posted sport orthotic. Hope you feel better!
To change topics… I need to mention that I am liking the theme of the females on this forum showing body parts as their avatar. Please keep it coming! OK back to the topic at hand… what ever it is. db
I do know that my selection is still going to be limited. Why can't every manufacturer make wide shoes?
