i am such a freak. seriously. i honestly had no time to squeeze in a run, but in my own head i just couldn't let the day go by without "celebrating." but i had the bean's kindergarten rodeo at school starting at 9 and going all the way through till 1:30, and it's too effing warm (for me) to head out later in the day.
but then i woke up at a stupid hour despite staying up till the wee hours working on a craft for the rodeo. so i decided to get up and get at least a quick couple of miles in before the bean got up for the day.
i love these shoes. i'm not typically a nike girl when it comes to running footwear, but i'd tested these out on a short run once before and did just fine. i read somewhere that the nike free line offers a good entry level shoe for testing out the "minimalist" type of running. while i'm not looking to join the ranks of those crazy folks who run in those creepy-looking vibram shoes or, god forbid, completely barefoot, i thought it might be mind of cool to give it a shot. another article said that the super duper comfy cushioning in most shoes can lead to injury because it leads to heel striking. apparently this is B-A-D. anyway, aren't they cute?
i rocked my hollywood half hat and my favorite workout top.
so yay for national running day!
