question of the week:

the new shoes!
new workout shirt, it says:
just say yes to endorphins ~ i love it!

what type of workout shoes do you have?

i'm a nike girl. last year at this time i tried a different brand, and used them for the first time when i did the CO Rockies Home Run for the Homeless 5k. the first mistake was that i did this event in brand new shoes without breaking them in first. i still have the scar. so after that one time of trying something different i went back to nike.

with my workout routine i go through a pair every 6 months. not a day shorter or longer. my last pair i got at the beginning of october with my mom. i remember thinking at the end of last month that these shoes were probably going to have to be replaced soon, but they weren't giving me any trouble so i put if off. well then on march 1st i did 50 minutes on the treadmill jogging every 7 minutes for 3 minutes, and i felt it right away. the rubbing on the inside of my foot. but i continued to put it off. i got a blister, it healed, then the same thing happened yesterday. all i can say is ouch! when a blister is healing another blister doesn't form, it just turns red and gets tender and hurts. with an upcoming trip with lots of walking planned i knew my current shoes wouldn't cut it. so today i took a short break at work, and went to the 16th street mall to go to the nike store and bought new shoes! i actually got 2 pair. i found 2 pair i really like, and figure i have a pair ready to go in october when my new pair go bad. and now i don't have to worry about finding a pair in the fall. so i'm a loyal nike customer for the next 12 months.

****** what kind of workout shoes do you use?
50/50 60min

Just bought another pair of New Balance a couple days ago. They seem to fit me best. I tried Nike, but they didnt feel right. Like your new shoes. Very nice! -Kari
