Waiting for New Shoes

Out of stock…everywhere!

Thank you Kelly’s Running Warehouse, you had my shoes available as you usually do. I found this site over the summer when ordering my Rock n Roll training shoes. They ship quickly (usually free) and the website is very user friendly.

I had to settle on the same color as I have now, but I am not running in them for their color anyway 🙂 I run in them for their stability and cushion.

This is my fourth pair of the exact same style and color Asics after running in Nike for years. I ran in Nikes all through high-school. But as I learned, our running habits and feet change. A few years ago I went for a running analysis and discovered that I am an over pronator.

According to the Sports Injury Clinic, over pronation can lead to several injuries. Some injuries could be plantar fasciitis and tendonitis, both of which I suffer from.

Due to that I require shoes with sufficient cushion. My feet have become so sensitive that i can feel wen it is time to replace my shoes well before any visible signs of the shoe itself. Generally the rule is to replace shoes between every 300-500 miles. The Asics 2170 have been great.

Hopefully the shoes will continue to help me achieve more of these!

The shoes arrived on Friday just in time for running this weekend!

What are your favorite shoes for training ?

Must Haves for Workout Hair

Do you have trouble keeping your hair out of your face, especially when working out ? I definitely do. It seems like I have tried everything. Everytime I go to a race expo, it seems as if I’m suckered into the next best thing.

I have a large collection of headbands.

A roll of the medical pre tape can be bought at Five Below in multiple colors for $5
This by far was the most creative. Also, it seemed to not damage or pull my hair.

Tiny claws for my baby hairs work pretty well too.

Recently I received my September Birchbox. There was a wonderful new hair accessory… The Twistband!

I used it immediately during a run. Loving it! I love the grey color I received in my Birchbox. Grey is chic enough to be used during the day for business attire.
My hair stayed up and pulled just tight enough for an attractive ponytail. This is in the running for a favorite thing!

You know I love fun workout accessories. A wonderful workout accessory and one of my favorite things is the Go Girl Bands . These bands don’t slip. They also are very stylish! They come in many varieties. Skinny, wide, and there are even bands for little ones. These could be a great edition to your daily wardrobe, working out or not!

Get yours today!
