I don’t think of myself as a “girly girl” but I love pink and I gravitate to things that sparkle and shine. I wonder if I am a misplaced Real Housewife of New Jersey by mistake. Well, without the back biting, general nastiness and 20-room house. So maybe not a RH of NJ but maybe a toddler. However, I digress.
Back in the day my running attire consisted of black shorts a black sports bra (never white for obvious reasons) and a white running shirt. Sometimes I’d branch out with a light blue running shirt. I know, color me crazy.
I (happily) have evolved from the “gray days’ into a kaleidoscope. I enjoy mixing my bright blue shorts with a hot pink top. Top that with my bright purple visor and I am ready to rock it. Again, like a toddler dressing herself I prefer to NOT match. It’s more interesting and fun to wear my running clothes any which way. I just recently purchase a three pack of neon running socks from Road Runner Sports (click here) to complete the ensemble. I thought that would be my wildest, craziest purchase. But I was wrong.
Exhibit A. My brand new bright pink running shoes. I have truly ventured into running geek-dome with the purchase and overwhelming LOVE I have for these shoes. They are the Nike ZOOM (and for those who think they can’t wear Nike, you have to give these a try) and are to die for.
I pronate (which means my ankle rolls outward) and have a problem with metatarsal pain (when the foot strikes on the pad of the foot it irritates a nerve that runs to my second and third toe) so finding the right shoe is really important. Now even though I love a nice looking shoe, it has be right for my foot and thankfully the ZOOM does the trick. As I looked online for a new pair and I saw these pink beauties at Zappos.com I bought them in a flash and got them 2 days later.
They make my feet happy and I am happy when I look down at my feet.
Now go run!
P.S. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so get your “girls” checked out. Maybe even make that appointment today!
