New Shoes

Yes, I did purchase the Brooks Trance 7s. I was hoping they would work for me because I think they look so dang cute. I went to Boulder Running Company and got on the dreadmill and indeed, they do work for me. I have taken several runs this week with them, and not only do they feel good, but I love to look at my feet because I just LOVE the way these things look! I couldn't find any cute socks locally, so I ordered a bunch online from DeFeet.

I have been a bad blogger this week because my son is home and I have just enjoyed spending time with him... as has the rest of the family. Suddenly my house is full and it is wonderful!

I haven't stopped running though. I am so enjoying the training for the half-marathon. I love slow, long-distance running. I feel like I leave the house full of tension and worries, and come back full of energy and peace. It is great.
