New Sneakers!

My hubby is so supportive of my new addiction to running that my first complaint of a blister after my 7 mile run last week he ordered me new sneakers. :) Not just any sneakers, but the same pair that he took me to get fitted for last summer. I now have two pairs of identical shoes... one pair that is very worn...that have been worn through hundreds of miles of my first running experiences... and then another... brand new...sparkly clean...and so comfy!

Even though I wasn't able to get outside to run this week getting on my treadmill was just as satisfying. I need to break in these new shoes for Sunday! I have my second half marathon in Newport Beach. I am so excited to see if I can improve not only my time, but my endurance as well. This will be a true test to what I have accomplished this year because I will be on my own, I won't have my husband running next to me for support, I won't have my best friend telling me that she's so proud of me, I won't have the comics of her hubby, Andy... it'll just be me.

  1. That's so funny. Andy was funny during our first half marathon! You are so great. You will be amazing. It will be just you running but we will be there in your head. Javier pushing you farther. Me telling you your doing great. Andy saying something silly. And your kids saying go mommy. So your feet may be the only ones hitting the pavement, but we will all still be there with you. I am so proud of you for running without us by your side. I will be watching your numbers though on the Internet!
