Bought new shoes, Won new socks!

Today my husband took me out to lunch and while we were sitting in the restaurant I realized we were only about 2 blocks from the local running store, The Athletic Shoe Shop, which I haven't had a chance to check out yet! My Newtons have been bothering my left foot during my last couple runs so I wanted to check out some of the lighter-weight Brooks shoes.  As soon as I tried on the PueFlow 2s I knew they were the ones!  Light-weight, super-comfy, and a normal color (unlike the bright pink/orange Newtons, Lol!). Can't wait to run tomorrow!

Then I came home and found out I won a pair of Injinji socks from The Boring Runner! Now I wish I would have asked for black instead of white ;)  Check these things out:

I'll report back on the shoes after my run tomorrow!

Love your hair! I would be very interested to hear how the socks did on your run. My first thought was that they would get pulled back too far between the toes and create blisters there. I've never seen those before.

Thanks Caron! I'll definitely post about the socks once they arrive!

Hi Laura! Love the shoes! You have a great collection of cute shoes. I bet they feel good too.

Regarding the socks, my toes are awfully fussy about socks. It's weird, but I can't tolerate most socks for various uncomfortable reasons. I'm pretty sure those toe socks would remind me of why I can't stand the strap of thong sandals between my toes. My mother always said I had "Cinderella feet." I think they are more like "Princess and the pea" feet.
