What your feet need is a shoe that is suitable for your gait and are comfortable to wear.

Running shoes arevery individual items.  Just cos one person thinks a particular shoes is the best thing since sliced bread doesn't mean it'll be any good for you. Similarly, one person's bad experience in a particularl shoe or brand doesn't automatically mean that shoe/brand wont suit you.

I believe Sweatshop allow you to return shoes after running in them a few weeks if they don't suit.

 

Women's sizes VS Junior

The kid's version are cheaper partly cos they're vat free.

Other than that, they may be a bit narrower and slightly less cushioned as they're designed for a child's weight/build. If you're fairly light on your feet you'd probably be ok.

You've left that a bit late! Hope you've got a fallback plan

Good luck and enjoy

Which runs have pacers - how to find someone to pace you

Posted: 09/04/2014 at 17:18

Yes, some of the bigger Halfs do have pacers. Think there used to be a list of which events had RW pacers on this site somewhere but if may have got lost/binned in a site upgrade.

If you've got a particular event in mind, check the race website; I'd guess if pacers are provided it would be included in the race details.

Otherwise, do you run with a club or friends? If so pair up with someone who can pace you/do the maths for you.

Print out a pace band with required mile split times so you just have to compare what it says on the band to what it says on your watch.

More expensive option, get a gps watch with a virtual pacer which will tell you if you're ahead or behind schedule.

Good luck
