I first tried on the newer Nike Air Pegasus. I also tried on a pair of Mizuno shoes. For anyone who has been following my blog from the beginning, you know that my first shoe fitting I was fitted for Mizuno shoes but had to exchange them (for the Nike shoes) since the Mizuno shoes hurt my pinky toe. Since that time, I was told that Mizuno has increased the size the shoe around the toes, but it still did not feel super comfortable for me. Then I tried a pair of Asics. I love the extra support around the heel of the shoe. I also felt the shoe had a bit more arch support, which I liked. After jogging around in both, I decided on the Asics. What was even better was that they were on sale and came in purple (the newer Nikes were in white, garnet and gold)!
|I <3 purple.|
|Love the fit and the tab in the back.|
|Do you see the cool padded tab on the sock, right at my heel?|

I am taking today and tomorrow off from running. My mom is coming to visit tomorrow, so I have lots of extra cleaning I want to do tonight. I have plans to run early on Saturday, before we head out so I can show my mom around my new neck of the woods. We have a really fun weekend planned, so I am looking forward to sharing it with you all!
Finally, last night Chris and I made a really good chicken stir fry. It was delicious! (The picture looks very green... I think I will add some red peppers next time.) The picture only shows the veggies and sesame seeds. We also added brown rice, but I apparently forgot to pull that picture off of my camera. Oops.
