Mmmm shoes!!!!!!

Who else out there loves their running shoes?!?!?

And who looooves getting new shoes?!?!?!

That’s what I thought. So please, share in my excitement of my TWO, count em TWO, new pairs of running shoes!!!!!!!!!!!

But first, let us say a fond farewell to my old shoes that will now be retired to easy workouts or walking to class.

My beautiful Asics. Nimbus. I really thought I would stick with them…but I went to my favorite local running store, Runabout SportsΒ and ended up with a lovely new pair of Mizuno’s!!!!

Mmmm aren’t they lovely?!?!?!?

So what does every runner do with their new running shoes?!?!? LACE THEM UP AND HIT THE PAVEMENT!!!! I took Uri out for a nice 3 mile run from my house to Beth’s. It was wonderful.Β  πŸ™‚ Uri was a pain today but I was still super excited about my rockin new shoes!!!

And yes, I did say TWO new pairs of shoes. That’s right. I got another pair. A trail pair!!! After the 4 mile trail run…I decided to get some trail shoes because I DO love trail running. I was going to order a pair online…but 40% off…it woulda been the same to order them online. So without further ado…my new Adidas trail shoes!!!!

Mmm, aren’t they pretty?!?!?!

So now I’m going to have to go for a trail run soon!!! Also, still need to get some YaxTrax. But anyway, in addition to the shoes I got a hat and two of my FAVORITE pairs of socks. Asics Hera’s. I got a discount because I’m a member of a local running group and the Tri-Club sooo….that plus the sale they were having…it was awesome. OH, and when you buy shoes at Runabout you get a discount on all other clothing items as well!!! So…I made out like a bandit today.

Mmmm new gear. Nothing spells fun like new gear!!!

SO…while in the store I noticed race shirts near the register…lots and lots of race shirts and numbers. *gasp* What’s that?!!? The store is having a 5K this weekend?!?!?!? And who do you think is now registered for TWO races this weekend??? One Saturday and one Sunday?!!? THIS GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And who couldn’t be more excited??!?! THIS GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My mom is running one on Saturday with me and I’ll be doing the store’s 5K Sunday!!!! SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And in non-running news, I would like to publically announce my serious lack of attention to my surroundings. APPARENTLY the boyfriend left a rockin present in my apartment IN PLAIN VIEW in FRONT of the TV three days ago…and I didn’t notice. He had to show it to me yesterday. I’m pathetic.

So. Here’s my random awesome for no reason Christmas present. πŸ™‚

Isn’t that awesome?!?!?!? I was soooo excited. πŸ™‚ Hehe.

So. In conclusion…shoes rock, races rock, boyfriends rock. And I’m a BAMF. πŸ™‚
