Follow The Yellow Brick Road

Follow The Yellow Brick Road, I mean shoes.  Take a gander at these bad boys.  Nice right?  These are my new pair of running shoe and I love them.  I have to say when I first tried them on I was not loving the yellow, I loved how they fit, but the color not so much.  So I chose comfort over style, but I've come to find out they may be pretty stylish.

People love them.  They want to know where I got them.  I bought them at a local Triathlon shop here in town, but they are K-Swiss, so I am sure you can find them anywhere.  The soles aren't blue, those are my funky orthodics I have to wear.  Lucky me!

Last weeks runs went great.  I logged over 14 miles, plus 3 miles on the bike.  That's the most active week I have had in years and it felt good, sore, but good.  My hubby came up with the idea of starting a running group in my neighborhood and it's been so much fun.  We run 3 miles on Monday and Thursday at 8pm.  Last week we had 6 women on Monday and 6 on Thursday.  I live in a very hilly neighborhood, so it is not an easy run by any means.  Add heat and humidity to the mix and it makes for a thrilling night. :)

I have found running to be a good stress reliever and I am also noticing I can climb a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing.  That's a good thing.  Now if I can only see the scale move, I will be a happy camper.

Do you like to run?  What are some ways that you relieve stress?

I love that quote! And I like to run especially to get me some endorphines to relieve the infertility stress. I don't go fast but at least I go! I trained and did the st jude 1/2 in 2009 and that was a huge first for me. Now I only go about 2-3 miles every time. But I'm building back up. love the yellow shoes too!

Thanks for your comment Amy. That's awesome that you did a 1/2 marathon. I may work myself up to that point, but for know hopefully a 10K. I'm glad it helps you relieve stress. Going through infertility is definitely stressful. I pray soon that you will be blessed with a child. He will give you the desires of your heart. Blessings.
