It's love

Sheer joy was had last night when I arrived home from the gym to find my new tennis shoes had arrived!

I know they say a good tennis shoe makes all the difference but seriously, that is no lie! I could literally feel how better my foot fit into these guys the second I put them on. If feet could sing, I'm pretty sure mine would be belting the Hallelujah chorus.

Again, sorry for the quality of the pic - someone was too lazy to get her regular camera out.
 These shoes are heaven. They're so light. So goodbye crappy Nikes. While I'm thankful for the hundreds of miles we've pounded out, I'm looking forward to no more blisters and bruised toes! I can't wait for Saturday to come so I can go for a run. Like, seriously Cannot. Wait! I may or may not have even worn these with my pajamas around the house for a couple minutes hours last night. It was HOT!

Happy Wednesday Lovies! Tell me something funny about your week!

Don't ever get rocket dogs for running...they're cut but they hurt. I'm embarrassed to say, but I kinda want these for fun

Yay! I just got a new set of running shoes on Monday--and I love the first run in a new pair :) I also LOVE that you call them "tennis shoes!" My husband makes so much fun of me for calling them that because he calls them sneakers ;)

Sneak over to my blog today and pick a dress--fun Rent the Runway giveaway! I'm sure you'll love it! Happy Wednesday, pretty lady! xoxo {av}
