Tuesday, June 9


Well, I went to a good running store and got my gait analyzed. It was pretty fun. He slow-mo'd me running on a treadmill (highly embarrassing) and showed me how I roll in my ankle ever so slightly. That's where I hoped it would end... but oh no... the stupidly wise mind-reading shoe salesman had to read my naughty cheapskate thoughts. Know what he said? I don't even know how the topic came up, but he came right out and said "Yeah, some people just go to Kohl's[scoff] and still pay $70-80, and get cheapo shoes that are just cardboard after a few months." I may have blushed. But I was subconsciously bullied into buying real shoes.

Here they are, not running, but still looking cute and happy on my feet:
These had better improve my running $70 worth, or I will be giving people some very dirty looks... (Julianne&Emilia)

And since I've deluged you with boring talk about shoes and (not)running, here are some pictures of my adorable kitten:

Being very brave peeking out the door of the apartment

Kitty in a box!

Jen - you crack me up! I'm proud of you for buying shoes that will help make running easier on your body! :) Hopefully you'll get your money's worth ... I'm just glad you didn't list me in the category of being angry at if they don't work out for you. :) Good luck!

I like them! You gotta do what you gotta do.

CONGRATULATIONS!! I'm so very proud of you.

Now, get running! Break those puppies in (and this may take upwards of a week of runs, so you're not allowed to give me an angry email until that time has elapsed.)
