We went for a trip out to the local Nike outlet this afternoon because we both needed some new sneakers. I just need them for wearing around, I wasn't planning on new running shoes until after Critter arrives and I'm ready to get back into running. I did end up getting a clearance pair of Nike Free running shoes, they were $19.99, normally $85.00. The unfortunate part is that they are what I would consider the extreme of ugly. Pink and purple. Ugghh. But, for less than $20, I can deal with it. I did find another pair of clearance shoes for $19.99 to wear for every day use. The part I was a little sad about? They're size TWELVE. They were a bit roomier than the elevens and I know with the heat of summer my feet will likely swell even more and at least I've got a little extra room in these to accommodate that. There isn't as much extra room as I would have expected in a size 12, though. My feet are huge, you would think I'd have better balance, but no. The selection is also, not surprisingly, quite limited for size eleven and twelve, beggars can't be choosers, I guess. And now I'm all ready to start running whenever I can, in the lovely pink and purple shoes.
I am walking the 5k in 2 weeks. Still not sure whether I'll be pushing the boys in the stroller or they'll be hanging out with grandma and grandpa. I just hope the weather's nice for it. My triathlon's 4 weeks from tomorrow, too. The water at the beach seemed significantly warmer this past week, so my open water swim in 2 weeks doesn't sound like the painful venture I was anticipating last week. I'm planning to get back in the pool for a few good swims, though, but I will not be quite as prepared as I can intended back in January. I guess that's just life, it will be fun anyway.
