Actually I started off quite strong, but between the wind, and then my back protesting quite loudly (I could hear it even with my headphones on), I ended up walking the last quarter mile or so.
I thought about it and really, I'm not being very fair to myself. I'm running in WalMart sneakers. From 2006. With a peeling sole.
No, not an appealing soul. A peeling sole. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.
So, anyway, later on this month, I'll fork out for some new running shoes. So, I got to doing some research and I think I'll get these Nike Air Pegasus +27's.
Although Runner's World didn't have a shoe review catagory for "fat farm-girl beginners," the review for this shoe offered what I thought sounded like something I could use: it said the shoe was "perky." I could certainly use some perkiness.
So of course, having found my running shoes (need) I decided to look at cute shoes (want).
I've been eyeballing these Pink Studio "Junnets" for about three weeks now. They're not too much money, so maybe I will get them sometime. I've just needed other things lately...oh, like propane, tires, legal car tags. You know, the boring crap that you have to buy instead of cute shoes.
