I desperately need to buy a new pair of shoes. I’ll try and get up to Houston and hit the running stores during the “sales tax holiday” this weekend. There are only four more weeks until the 18-week plan for the 2008 Houston Marathon. I saw on their website they have a discount for active duty and retired (including yours truly) military…woo-hoo!
