In her shoes

I am really not your typical woman... and honestly I am ok with that... I mean look at the pictures in my blog and I don't look like a typical 44 yr old woman and truly I thank GOD for that... I never ever want to be a fat, flabby, soccer mom (yes soon I become a step mom and hopefully within the year we add to the family)... I always want to take care of myself, take care of the  temple I've been entrusted with while on this earth....

but back to In Her Shoes:

I happened to catch this movie on some channel this weekend it has Cameron Diaz in it... she is obsessed with shoes, high heel shoes.. but that is not what the movie is all about its just a portion of this character in the movie..

And while packing this weekend I had to laugh, at myself, because in some fashion... I am like Cameron's character in that movie only my obsession is with sneakers...

I am not kidding when I say I must have, easily 10+ pair of sneakers... they all, well ok most of them, start out as running shoes and once I've put the mileage on them they become gym shoes, because they aren't ready for the trash but they are no longer supportive enough for the pounding of running..

then I have my just regular sneakers that I bum around in, then of course there are my keds - which I need a new pair cause my white keds are no longer white and I've washed them and they no longer come clean...

So after my grueling training session at 5am with Kurt, on my way home I was thinking are you REALLY going to take ALL those sneakers with you???

And tonight... I will likely hit The Runner's Soul and get a new pair of running shoes since the two pair I have are almost at their mileage limits...

sigh.. maybe there is a 12 step program for someone like me!

You certainly aren't alone! I do exactly the same thing! New shoes are cardio shoes. At the mileage limit they become gym shoes and eventually every day bum around shoes. Some of my shoes have been lucky enough to make it to grass cutting shoes...the final stage in the life of a shoe....
