  • Running: I have a crush

    There is good news and there is better news.  I have better news.  
    My new shoes came in the mail.  I have been waiting for them for what seems like an eternity.  The advertizement on their site said “VIPers get their orders shipped within two hours!”  I was so on that.  PAid $1.99 to become a VIP member.  Saved myself $20 off my shoes plus $16.99 on the shipping.  Well worth the $1.99 if I say so myself.  However, I don’t know what two hour time frame they were talking about.  Two hours before a natural disaster, or two hours before they knew I was going to call and cancel my order after waiting close to TWO WEEKS.  Yeah, not cool.  But I can say, that my shoes are A-mazing.  Hands down the BEST foot ride, ever.  My feet felt like they were running on little clouds.  Puffy little white pillows.  My legs felt good, too.

    I have a been a die hard Puma fan for a while…but my friend, Terry, told me about Mizuno and highly recommended them.  And she kept recommending them until I finally took the bait — AND the test.  Yeah, I went online and they have this nifty little test I took to assess, as best they can, what style and type of shoe needed for my gait. 
    Monday, I took them for a test run.  1.39 miles in 11:24.  Lapped an 8min mile, too.  I was in a hurry that day so I had to cut my run VERY short.  boo.  But I want to go again, and again and again. 
    I’m a happy woman with my Garmin and my shoes. 
    Oh, and I’m crushing on my Garmin.  He’s so stinkin cool.
    I just registered for another 5k and he’s coming with.

    Silent cheerleaders.  The weekend is coming, what’s in it for you?

    My husband runs in Mizunos. I've yet to find a pair that works for my size 5 foot, so I'm a loyal Saucony'ist!
