Ever since finding out I was selected as a Shaklee 180™ blogger, I’ve kicked up my workouts in preparation of this new lifestyle and routine. When the weather isn’t too cold, I take the stroller out for a good walk/jog around my neighborhood. It’s been hard to get a good run in lately. As a single mom, I have to rely on others to watch my son while a run. I feel guilty using my babysitter for just one hour, and frankly when none of your friends have kids, it’s kind of hard to call them up and ask for help. I feel like I’m imposing!
The big issue though? My running shoes are horrible! They are old, and no longer support my feet as they once did. Running (okay, maybe jogging) became downright painful. I knew if I was going to take this transformation seriously, I needed some new kicks.
As you can tell above, my running shoes, and my back up workout sneakers are in pretty bad condition. The previous week I stopped in my local New Balance to take a look at shoes. I had my feet properly measured and started to browse when someone just wasn’t feeling it anymore. I could definitely tell he was in need of lunch and a nap! So that trip was cut short.
Then this weekend, one of his grandmothers stopped by to watch him while I headed over to MODELL’S to check out their selection. Luckily I had my MVP card and a 15% off coupon in hand! After trying I don’t know how many pairs, I finally went with Nike Downshifter 4 since the fit was comfortable and the price was right (and even better with my coupon!).
Now I just need to update my “running mix!”. For now until I put something together, I’m just using Pandora radio in hopes they get each song right.
What is your favorite song to listen to while running?
