Ahhhh - my toes thank you

Bad moods and blogging simply don't mix, but bad moods and blogging partners make for some sesriously funny e-mails. As Kari, Ms. Fool, and Minken (and, of course, my husband and Bonster) are aware, I had an awful week at work. No need for details, of course, but it just happened along at the most inappropriate time. Don't people understand that when it is 20-mile week THERE IS NO TIME FOR ANY DRAMA?!? Well, I must simply say that if it weren't for Minken's advice on how to address my sore toes, I would never have considered purchasing my new pair of running "shoes." Minken - you are SOOOO right! All my toes needed in order to run happily was a bit more space in the toe-box. How are these going to look with my new running skort?
Since purchasing these beauties, my running has really taken on a life of its own. Out I went tonight, and cranked out 9 miles. You should have seen the looks I got on my run today - I just don't know if it was because of the shoes or the red rubber nose! In any case, my feet feel better, my splits were amazing, and I am now laughing at the insane idea of actually running in these shoes (and the memory of my very horrible week is fading away....) Thanks guys!


  1. Like we said, Laura, if your tootsies get sore again, just dig out the unicycle!

  2. so, instead of slaying slow male runners, you can kick them in the ass..Literally! Men of Paris, beware!

    You go girl!

  3. So seriously though...did you get the new shoes and did they help?!!

  4. I tried the old shoes first, and they felt MUCH MUCH better. I ran 9 miles in them last night. I am going to make what I have work. I may kick myself in the long run, no pun intended, but I think I will be fine.
