There is good news and there is better news. I have better news.
My new shoes came in the mail. I have been waiting for them for what seems like an eternity. The advertizement on their site said "VIPers get their orders shipped within two hours!" I was so on that. PAid $1.99 to become a VIP member. Saved myself $20 off my shoes plus $16.99 on the shipping. Well worth the $1.99 if I say so myself. However, I don't know what two hour time frame they were talking about. Two hours before a natural disaster, or two hours before they knew I was going to call and cancel my order after waiting close to TWO WEEKS. Yeah, not cool. But I can say, that my shoes are A-mazing. Hands down the BEST foot ride, ever. My feet felt like they were running on little clouds. Puffy little white pillows. My legs felt good, too.
I have a been a die hard Puma fan for a while...but my friend, Terry, told me about Mizuno and highly recommended them. And she kept recommending them until I finally took the bait -- AND the test. Yeah, I went online and they have this nifty little test I took to assess, as best they can, what style and type of shoe needed for my gait.
Monday, I took them for a test run. 1.39 miles in 11:24. Lapped an 8min mile, too. I was in a hurry that day so I had to cut my run VERY short. boo. But I want to go again, and again and again.
I'm a happy woman with my Garmin and my shoes.
Oh, and I'm crushing on my Garmin. He's so stinkin cool.
I just registered for another 5k and he's coming with.
Silent cheerleaders. The weekend is coming, what's in it for you?
