New Shoes and a Special Delivery!

For all of you runners out there, what are your favorite running shoes?  I'm not a "runner" at all, but I do like to try to work out on a regular basis.  This could mean elliptical, workout videos, biking, etc.  I don't really run but I wish I could learn to love it.  :/  I've always loved New Balance and bought a pair of 460's (see pic below) a while ago for working out.  I love how they look and fit (I have narrow feet) but they aren't very supportive and not really "running" shoes.
Out with the old (but not really, I'm keeping these!)....
I got an email for Famous Footwear for 20% off.  This coupon could be used on TOP of the BOGO sale.  Hubby has been talking about getting new running shoes for a while.  Unlike me, he actually goes running!  Anyway, since I'm not a runner, I didn't care if the shoes I bought were the best of the best.  I just wanted something that had decent support, fit my narrow feet, and looked somewhat cute!  I ended up going with Adidas ClimaCools.  I love how they fit and they're cute (obviously I didn't venture too far from the style of my old NB's).  I just bought them so I haven't actually used them yet.  I'll let you all know when I do, though!



....and in with the new!
Now for the special delivery!  Not too long ago, I found out that I won an amazing giveaway hosted by the lovely Shasta Anne!  What did I win, you ask?  A Clarisonic Pro!  I told you it was an amazing giveaway!  Shasta sent me my gift with some pretty pink packaging and even included a super nice note for me!  Unfortunately, my new beauty gadget has to charge for 24 hours before the first use so I'm impatiently waiting for it to be ready!  If you haven't checked out Shasta's blog, head on over!  She has another amazing giveaway for the month of August!

My husband and I are on week 8 of 9 of the Couch to 5K. I highly recommend it if you want to start running. Neither of us ran before doing this (but we were pretty active). Now we are running 2 1/2 miles straight. I bought some Nike Reax and I'm liking them. (I also own those same exact 460s! Love the looks but not the lack of support!)
