New Gear!

It rained all day Thursday and Friday so we did a 5 miler in the arboretum. It was a lot more flat (but not flat) than Wednesday's run. I stopped a few times. And wanted to stop about fifteen three more times. I was proud though, we ran the second 2.5 miles straight back and it took about 23 minutes. I think it is going to help me so much to have someone to push me. I just hope I can help motivate her somedays too (eventually!).

I also got some new trail shoes.
Wow that picture is super small. Anyways, they are New Balance 573 Trail Runners. I found them at discount shoes for 50 bucks. I don't usually buy running shoes without doing a lot of research (and I haven't bought anything other than Mizuno Wave's for three years) but I figured I can't be running trails in the street shoes.
Even though they are the best shoes ever. I was nervous that trail shoes would be heavy, but this pair is really light and I actually really enjoyed running in them. We'll see, but so far so good. I'm worn out, I really need to go visit my friend Bob though.
Weight loss yoga. I need to stretch, badly. But I want to sleep! Not enough time in the day!


  1. I'm a Mizuno Wave Rider wearer...for years and years. They totally are the best! I'm jealous of the new trail shoes. I need a pair!

  2. I think I got really lucky with these. they're doing great on the trails and last night we ended up on the road for a little bit and they even felt good on the concrete!
