I Must Be A Runner.


Yes. I must officially be a runner. Now your asking, what makes YOU an official runner. Well, my guess is if my new pair of running shoes cost more than I paid for my wedding dress then I must be serious about this activity. (Granted, my wedding dress cost only $80 for the materials and my sweet mom made it, and looking back now I think to myself....UGH, how could I have WORN that!)

Well, you are likely thinking to yourself, how could you wear those orange monstrosities. Let me tell you....they are like running on air! I have to say that it's a good thing that one of my favorite colors right now is orange and half of my workout clothing is orange, so at least I can somewhat coordinate my looks.

After having my running analysis, the girl brought out a selection of shoes that would be best for my running style and my first thought when I saw the orange shoes was...NO WAY. I mean I DO love orange, and it's super happy, and you could see me coming from a mile away in those babies, but NO WAY! All it took was playing Cinderella and slipping them on and I knew I was in love.

So here's hoping that my new pumpkin feet will carry me well this Saturday during my 1/2 Marathon. I still think I'm psycho for that. 13.1 miles? Oh sheesh...what was I thinking?!?!?

Wow, you are addicted! A new post every day...I wish I was that clever. We would love a Rock Band Party, Josh is really good especially at the drums, I have zero rythym, but I get a kick out of it any way.
