Toe shoes

I’ve heard that the toe shoes are supposed to be really good for your feet if you are a runner. I think they are the funniest looking shoe around. They had some at Marshall’s so I decided to try some on. They are pretty comfortable, so I went ahead and bought them. I exercise so early that no one will ever see them if I decide I like them.

The best part of getting them was when my two year old nephew saw them on my feet. He pointed and just started laughing. It was so funny. It made buying them worthwhile. He made me take them off and when I sat on the couch he came from behind and threw them over and shouted, “ta da!!!” I tried to put them on his feet but he wanted nothing to do with them! It was all pretty amusing and I’m glad I bought them.



And then there was MUSIC!!!

I’ve always been jealous of people that can listen to music while they work out. I evidently have small earholes, because I’ve never found earbuds that fit my ear. I’ve even tried the ones that you can switch out to the little ones, but I still couldn’t get them to stay in my ears! Well, I’m about to join the people with music in their life!!! I finally found some earbuds that fit me!! I went to Best Buy today and picked up the yurbuds after seeing them at the Cap 10K expo! I have already put them in my ears and danced around and THEY STAYED IN!!!! I’m so excited! I can’t wait to go exercise!!!



Cap 10K Expo

For the last couple of years I’ve done the Cap 10K in Austin. It’s almost as huge a race as the Turkey Trot in Dallas. This year I signed up for it, but I don’t get to do it because I have a birthday party to go to in Dallas. I went and got my shirt anyway, since I paid for it. While I was at the expo, I bought another iFitness belt. I figure that I really only need the double one if I’m going to have to carry my car keys. I need a smaller one for the day to day walks, which I do more often. I am extra excited about this one because it is a breast cancer awareness model! I can’t wait to try it out!

They also had a booth that sells earphones for the iPhone (or any other device you want to use them with). I have really small earholes, so I can’t even wear earphones when I run. These people swore that theres would work for me. You know what!!? I think they will!! I didn’t buy them there, though, because they sell these at Best Buy. Once I get them, they will probably get a whole blog to themselves!
