There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe…

I have recently signed up for the Half Marathon on the Sunshine Coast with my fiance and my friend Faithe. As part of my training regime I’ve not only had to increase the km’s in my running but also realised I need to invest in a new pair of runners which will help me get to the finish line and so this idea has led me to write my first post :-) .  Just by coincidence  I was recently forwarded an email about a shoe deal at Paul’s Warehouse… 2- 4- 1 deal. I know that trainers can be pricey so for those who are on a tight  budget and bouncing around in a pair of those old 90?s Slazenger trainers (do they even make that brand anymore?) that have a sole so slippery it’s like sliding on a banana peel should check out the deal at Paul’s. “For women, shoes are the most important. Good shoes take you good places.” ? Seo Min Hyun I personally love buying new trainers… well I have to admit I’ve become a little obsessed with them lately and have been adding  a new pair bit by bit to my wardrobe. Of course I’ve had to hide them from my fiance and slowly bring them out and even though they aren’t a pair of Jimmy Choo’s…I still  get the  same question… are they new (with a look of concern)? ah nooo they are sooo old, they have been sitting in my wardrobe for the last 6 months… I’ve worn them before but you just didn’t notice… ah ok! Check out these sexy Nike’s I’m sporting now…

Even though they look cool and are uber comfy to get around in, I wouldn’t suggest running a marathon in them. Mizuno’s are a personal favourite of mine to run in… they are light and make me almost feel like I don’t have any trainers on. In saying that Mizuno might not be the best choice for you and there are other good brands such as Asics, Brookes etc. Make sure you try them on and see what’s best suited to you and your active lifestyle. By having the right running shoes you will be able to run on all sorts of surfaces either hard or soft without causing any issues to your ankles or knees. I’m a newbie to blogging so stay tuned… it’s not always going to be about shoes… sometimes it’s about the bike ;-)
