Got a new pair...

In the past 30 days, I've logged 100.28 miles!
I got a new pair of running shoes at the beginning of the training season in July.
They are my first pair to hit the 400 mile mark
in less than 6 months.

I was super-duper excited to get a new pair of running shoes
this weekend.  I tried on at least 10 pair and finally decided on these...

I like running.  I really enjoy it.
Each time I run, I push my legs and my body to do something I NEVER thought
I would ever or could ever do.
It's empowering.
It's freeing.
It's relaxing (after the first mile).
It's good for my heart.
It gives me a clear head.
It's me time.
Time to think.
Time to sing.
Time to celebrate.
Time to pray.
Time to be thankful.
Time to live.


  1. That actually made me want to run! Maybe a new pair of shoes is what I need :)

  2. Hey Bre- I'd venture to say that new shoes make almost anything possible :)

  3. I just bought a new pair of running shoes after trying every shoe in the store on...turns out I was buying the wrong size, so needless to say, the right size shoe makes all the difference. I love my nikes and couldn't imagine running without them!

  4. That is awesome Gina! That inspires me...maybe one day I can be a runner too. :)

  5. You're right Shannon - the right shoe makes the difference.

    Jen - run, walk, hop, skip, pick one - you can do it, one step at a time.

  6. You make running sound so fun!

    Every time I try it, I fear I might die! ;)
