Happy Early Birthday To Me!
I had been contemplating actually going to a running store and getting fitted for new shoes for a while now. My first pair of running shoes were purchased at Wal-mart (dumb idea) since I didn't have a lot of money, and I wanted to make sure I was going to stick with running. The next two pairs of shoes were purchased during a buy-one-get-one-half-off deal at Shoe Carnival. They were New Balance running shoes, and I was pretty pleased with them, especially with the price. It was about time for new shoes, and I figured I'd drive to Track Shack to check out their shoes and get fitted as a birthday gift to myself.
Well today Joe sent me an e-mail telling me that Track Shack was celebrating it's 30 year anniversary and everything in the store was 20% off. (Joe is the one who first challenged me to a race and should probably be given credit for this amazing running addiction. LOL) I took this as a sign that I should get new shoes! As soon as I got off of work my roommate and I met up with Joe and we all went out to Track Shack. The employees there were excellent! They fitted me for shoes and had me try a few different pairs. I ended up getting a pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 10s! I absolutely LOVE them! Also... they are purple, which happens to be my favorite color!!!! I could not be more excited! I even took a picture with my camera phone and sent it to a few friends who I knew would get a laugh out of that (And Amy, I am one of those text-messaging crazy people. lol. Now that I have a camera phone... watch out world!)
So I am declaring a "Happy Early Birthday" to myself today!!!! (Note: My birthday isn't until September 18th... wink wink).
