I love buying new shoes, like LOVE buying new shoes. It doesn't matter what kind. Flats, flip flops, heels, wedges, mules, boots, black shoes, blue shoes, red shoes, purple shoes, shoes for dancing, shoes for swimming, and especially shoes for running. I really want to buy some of those obnoxiously colored running shoes, but my favorite Aussie and I believe that you should have a certain level of ability to pull those shoes off. I just don't have that ability...yet. : ) So until then I will settle for my semi-obnoxiously colored shoes.
As much as I love buying new shoes, I HATE breaking them in. It's usually two weeks of knee-crackling, ankle-creaking, blistering hell, especially with those aforementioned running shoes. But running shoes only have so many miles in each pair and my most recent pair has long exceeded their mileage. I bought new shoes a while back and have been so dreading that I am only now breaking them in and only because I am forced to. I am rotating between the new and the old until the new ones are broken in and then the old ones are going to retire. At least until the next Dirty 30.
So my miles this morning may have sounded like a bowl of Rice Krispies right after you add the milk, but at least I look cute in my new shoes. : )
Peace, Love, and NuSkin.

So I have been a little off track lately. Can you blame me? What with children's surgery? And other life issues flying at me left and right?!! But I am taking measures to get myself back on track and beyond. I am going to the inaugural meeting of the RunHers Moore/Norman running club tonight. WooHoo!!! I have wanted to join the club for a long time, but all their stuff in always on northside and I don't always have the time to travel to northside OKC. Convience, people! Now we are starting one down south. I am sooooo excited. And I have apparently unleashed the beast that is my neighborhood/my friend/ and now drill sargeant, A. She is going to whip my into shape whether I want it or not. : ) So this things, plus the impending dread of upcoming races that may kill me, should be just what the doctor ordered to get me where I need to be. : ) I may have to celebrate with some cheesecake. What?! No Cheesecake?! Well, *(^^$&(*)(#_)#%%&)#!!! FINE, no cheesecake. : ( Just peace and love.
