What a day

Wahoo!!! we started out the day at 30 degrees today, and it felt so good to go for a run this morning and not be freezing cold with icicles hanging from eyelashes. Morning Run was about 11.5 miles total and it felt great. 

Coffee at Jp's as usual after my run and then a great chat with my new/old friend Krissy, we knew who each other was from high school but we didn't really hang out, now we are in the same small group at church and we met this morning to chat about running and fitness. Which led to Krissy getting an awesome new pair of running shoes at Gazelle Sports. With all the people that I have introduced to running and taken there to get a good pair of running shoes they should recruit me ( LOL) Anyways back to shoes... she got a sweet pair of purple Nike's, they weren't these exact shoes but the color of these was pretty close. I am super excited for Krissy and hope that her journey into running is a great one. 
I also had to try on a few shoes while I was there.. I really did need some new Running shoes mine are really starting to wear thin in the front, and the ground is getting closer :) Time for new ones... I decided I wanted to try something different. I normally go right for the Asics but I had Mizuno on the brain. I came home with the Mizuno Inspires and I am looking forward to many run with them.
