Guess what? I hinted at it in this post and I'll hint at it again...
|Look, I can stand on one leg!|
I actually had no idea that you are supposed to get new shoes in reasonable intervals. I always got comfy with a new pair and rode it out until my mom made me buy a new pair. I wear the suckers almost every day, though, so I don't know who I was kidding!
My last two pairs were black, because I thought they were low profile and I liked that they didn't scream 'LOOK! I'M WEARING RUNNING SHOES!'
Now, my thoughts have changed. Hand me something bright as a highlighter and send me on my way, please.
After much deliberation (okay, like 30 minutes - I'm not one to dawdle), I went with these babies:
Apparently, they are built with traction for "superior off-road performance." If you know me or read my workout posts, you know I'm not a big off roader. I ran on a path for the Run For Boston 5k, but other than that, I'm a treadmill lady.
I know they look red in the pictures, but I swear to you that they seem orange in person (and the laces are pure orange too). What's so interesting about that fact? Well, I realized yesterday that I have been on an orange binge.
Exhibit A: My Desk. I realized yesterday that I had far too many orange items sitting on my desk. Inside that orange bag? There were TWO ORANGES for me to snack on. Not even kidding. Who am I?
I also almost bought orange Lacoste sunglasses yesterday. By almost, I mean I took some pictures to send my fiance for approval. Somehow, despite approval, I did not purchase.
What do you think?
Maybe some of you will have to convince me to take my new shoes off road... and stop buying orange things!
