It's Amazing!

It's amazing how much difference a shoe makes!! I got my new Asics Gel-Soled Runners yesterday from my beautiful and awesome sister, Crystal, and when I jogged last night I didn't have any of the discomfort previously experienced with my crappy Wal-mart shoes. I guess you really do get what you pay for.

Normally my feet hurt, my shins are uncomfortable, and I get a new blister every time I jog in my old shoes. Last night none of these things happen. And even better my new AWESOME shoes didn't even hurt the existing blisters let alone make new ones. I'm in love (my husband should be wary) with my new shoes! They're the best thing since lost weight!!

So, I'm sure you've realized I completed Week 2 of the Couch to 5K program last night. I went even further, pushed myself even harder and went 2.17 miles. So I'm totally stoked about that.

I don't really have any other revelations or life changing epiphanies right now. I'm still lost in the shiny glow of new fabulous shoes that were like heaven on my feet while I ran last night.

It really is amazing what a difference new sneakers make. Mine are over a year old and I'm sure they're the reason my back pain has been acting up again.

I'm so excited for you!

Angie, I definitely recommend them, they're awesome.

Mel, I had no idea. I thought a sneaker was a sneaker. But I was WRONG! Wrong I tell you! :D I'm so happy with them I want to workout more just to wear them. Does that make me sick? :D
