New shoes

Today I bought a new pair of shoes.....for running! And other running gear ;-) I need to get back out there, and take a little better care of myself!
Much as I love sewing, it really doesn't do much for my health. LOL!
I do have some clothes tucked away somewhere, but it's probably a size 2, and no way am I going to even try to get into that!!!

I went to a Nike-factory-outlet, and got everything I need (+a pair of sneakers for Charles) for less than those shoes cost in a regular store.

After shopping for not-so-interesting-shoes I saw these
and I just had to have them!
I love them, and they are surprisingly comfortable.

Oh I should tell you!
My sweet Charles is doing his PhD, doing research on folksonomies and collaborative tagging....he might need to do a case-study, and guess what he chose as his topic?! Quilters! How fun is that?!

I didn't know you were a runner. Good for you! I am a former runner. :>} I participated in four 10K races years ago, then decided I prefer walking. LOL The new shoes look great!

I think I need to follow your example - I spent way too much time sitting at my computer or sewing machine! Your new running shoes look very smart. Your husbands research sounds really intersting!

I hear you about the health issues sitting at sewing machine and computers. I too have decided I need to exercise more. Love the shoes you bought.

Good Luck with the running! It's my absolute FAVORITE way to relieve the stress from my 4 energetic kiddos! I love to run by myself either with my ipod jammin' out, or without it lost in my own quiet thoughts. So relaxing for me!!
