Now that I've walked a mile...or Eleven....


Ok, ok, I'll admit it...I'm loving my shoes. I've worn them now for a few days of exercise and they are quite nice. I did, however, find a drawback to my lovely shoes:

They have a lot of mesh on them and when I walked on some grass that had been recently watered, HELLO! water seepage. Yikes. It wasn't just wet, it was cold, too. Harold informs me that his shoes have similar mesh (but how would I know that since he wears his leather shoes on our walk together-yes the ones he wears to both work AND church, who knows where his fancy running shoes are?). He says the mesh also allows them to dry quickly, which I found was quite true.

My new shoes also adorned my feet last night when I did the slowest jog ever seen by the human eye for an entire 0.5 mile straight. Yes indeedy...I jogged...on street surfaces. Wow, I felt like a little kid who when they get new shoes say, "My new shoes make me run faster!" Except mine didn't help with speed, but I'm not blaming the shoes.

How are you feeling the arch support is?? I too need a new shoe, but have to have some good support inside...a must for a spendy shoe....let me know. Proud of you for the half mile - we should look into a 5K to run together that is later than the Orem one - I haven't been keeping up with the running and so won't be ready for that one.

Maybe we can go jogging together when I move to Utah in August? Glad you like your shoes.

Yeah!!!! I'm glad you went there! I love my shoes from there and mine have the meshy too and I learned that I can't walk on grass inthe morning in the summer as well! But love them. At least yours are pretty. Mine are white with neon green Adidas. I think i'm pretty close to glowing in the dark...LOL! Glad you love your shoes! :)
