Some dates are pretty important to remember.

Like your significant others birthday, when a job interview is, when the milk in your fridge expires, there's a lot to keep in mind!

One date that always sticks in my head is the date I decided to start running and getting in shape.

For years, I did marching band and that kept me moving in high school and college, but after graduating college that stopped.

So on December 25th, 2015 I decided to start running, working out, and trying to stay in some sort of shape.

I'm happy to say that to this day, seven years later, exercise is still a regular part of my life.

Just this morning, I cranked out 4 miles on the Seaside Heights boardwalk before getting ready for work.

It was while running that I noticed a portion of my sock sticking through my Hoka running shoe.

It's funny, I can remember the date I started my 'running journey' but can't for the life of me remember to get new running shoes when needed.

I think this pair is going on almost two years.

Definitely time to grab some new kicks.

That got me thinking.

Where in Ocean and Monmouth County is a good place to buy running shoes?

When I lived back home I would just go to Target and pick up a pair.

They would last a few months but I'd still go through them pretty quickly.

That's when I found a really cool locally owned running shoe store that took the time to measure the arches of my foot as well as help me find a shoe that really fits the contour of my feet.

There are a few places that remind me of this place in Ocean and Monmouth County, and if you're just looking to start getting into the activity, a few places that you'll want to check out as well.
