There are some new kicks in my closet this morning…shhhh don’t tell my husband! We made a rule about a year ago for every new pair of sneakers that came in one had to leave. And the last two pairs I’ve just avoided that agreement all together! I have a really hard time parting with race shoes, they are like a part of me. This should read to you as ….girls got issues 😉
So what do you guys think? I’m in love! Smitten really! Today I tried them out on a nice recovery 5k and they were all I hoped for and more. I’ve forgotten how nice it is to run in a good shoe. Don’t get me wrong I love my old kicks but they are really not designed for long runs.
And to be honest these were not my first pick. If you follow me on instagram I’ve been taking pictures all over of shoes I wanted. I had finally settled on a pair of Mizuno’s but change is hard and I didn’t 100% love the feel of them on. For me that’s the true test of a sneaker. If I try it on and feel like a princess I’m sold.
After hesitating and looking around the store a little bit longer, I found these babies! I’m an Asics runner and always have been. I know to always half size up and they fit perfectly! I tried them on and I knew flashy colors and all they were mine.
I felt a little like the clown jester today at the gym…it was BRIGHT!
My bright blue tights, these new shoes and this killer top from Kohl’s.
I was like a beacon of bright blue sunshine on this otherwise gloomy overcast day. Seriously though I tried soooo hard to hold back but these shoes wanted to go. I’m not going to lie I might go run another 5k tonight in them. Ever get that feeling where you just want to run? And you feel like you could go for hours on end? I’m in the groove. Good thing too because my first official half marathon of the year is just two weekends away! Eeeehhhhhh I’m excited and nervous and excited, it will be my 4th half!
Last week Chobani sent me the world’s most amazing gift…greek yogurt! And I think I’ve found a new favorite flavor (don’t quote me on that since I change my mind on fav. flavor daily) but this Fig Orange Zest bite is DELICIOUS!
Question of the day: What is your favorite running shoe?
