It's amazing what a new pair of shoes can do to you. It's like, once you pay the cashier, they become infused in you. Even when you're not wearing them, you can't escape them. I finally bought my long-awaited running shoes, and the whole time at work I felt as if I was already getting into better shape. I wasn't even wearing them!
And these, these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I wasn't the biggest fan of this brand, but as soon as I slipped them on and walked around, I knew I could never go back. I just can't WAIT to go running! The mother and I are going to run to the parade Monday morning. It's cheaper (what's cheaper than free?), a lot further, and just as fun as running the 5k parade route.
By the way, I love the Fourth of July. It's one of my favorite holidays, next to Halloween, of course. I love parades. I love spending the afternoon lazy by a lake hidden in the mountains.
Speaking of mountains! Scott and I went to Sundance last night and rode the ski lift for the monthly Full Moon Ride! I look forward to it every year, and every year it is just as fun as the last. If any of you are able, save a little extra money and go for a date night. You will be amazed and reverenced by the majesty of the mountains around you. See for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
I love the summer!!
