Christmas came early

DSC01766This Monday didn’t start off the best, but it sure finished pretty great.  I didn’t feel the best when I woke up this morning, so after taking the kids to school, I went out for a short run.  I just felt worn out.  Maybe because of the busy weekend.  I got home and took a nap.  I felt much better after that.  I went to target and got some Christmas shopping done before I got the kids from school.

I went to 1600 powerzone.  We did the usual total body work out, with some plyometric squats too.  It’s when I got home, that the day got better.  Christmas came early for me!! Steven called when I was on the way home, and said he had an early Christmas present for me. “Presents for me? Hurry up and come over!”

DSC01770I opened the box, and there they were! Pink Distance Newtons! ” They are even cooler than I thought!” After smelling the shoes (I love the smell of new shoes), I put them on. They feel awesome, different, but awesome. I can’t wait to go run in them. They are so light. I am glad he got me a size 9. I usually wear an 8.5 in my Asics.

Steven wasn’t completly selfless. He got a lime Distance pair. His look really cool too! I didn’t realize the top was just mesh, and so I won’t be wearing them outside until this snow melts. I guess thats why Newton started making the all weather trainers. Allison better get her Pink Newtons, so we can be twinkies at the Illinois CU marathon! I have the best boyfriend ever!
