THEY'RE HERE!!!!!! Oh, and some workouts.

Ok, worked out on the elliptical Dec 27, 29, 30th for between 29-37 minutes and between 6-8 miles. Felt great. Watched some Netflix on Hoarders. Or Hoarders on Netflix, rather, Yadda yadda yadda

Let's get to the important stuff, shall we?

They're here.

Did you hear me?
THEY'RE HERE!!!!!!!!!!

I may have muttered a 'Hallelujah' and took out a kid head-on, on my way to the front door when the UPS man arrived.
I may also have stalked, I mean TRACKED the package 2 or 12 times in the last 24 hours.
And I may or may not have tried them on right on my stoop, right over top of my fuzzy socks.

You could say I was a little excited.

They fit so wonderfully. As in I wanted to shed a tear and eat some ice cream all at the same time kind of wonderfully.

After wearing my 7yr old Nikes for the last month, well, lets just say these do for my feet what ice cream does for my mouth. Minus the cavities and what not.

I am hoping to get a run in them tomorrow. I haven't run since Sunday, since after that run, my shins and ankles were bullying me. I think they'll be MUUUUUCH happier now.

Thank you Nike for being awesome!!!!
*incase you're new here, my Air Max 2009's that I got last July, 'popped' meaning I got a hole in the heel so the whole sole support system was shot. Was told by a guy at Finish Line to try to send them back to Nike and see if they would replace them. I did, and they did!
I got my voucher for $160 last Thursday to use at, ordered the 2010's that night and got them today. Joy.*


  1. Yippppppeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Let me think, when did I predict you would get them?

    OH, that's right, on the 26th I said probably Thursday. Now if only I could predict lottery numbers this well.

    They look great, I hope they work for you as well as your old ones did.

  3. I was thinking that SAME thing yesterday Natty =)
    I have already been wearing them around the house. I may sleep in them tonight.
    And name them.

  4. They are beautiful!!! I am so happy for you! Can't wait to hear all about how they feel!! 7!! Thanks for the sweet compliment today:) I am OBSESSED with your blog!

  5. I am SO happy for you!! Woot! Happy running. You deserve this one :)

  6. so exciting that you can take those puppies for a spin!!!

    sorry i've been mia! and thanks for the tag. i swear, i'll get to it soon :)

  7. Thanks guys. You know what STINKS? I came down with a cold last night =( Yesterday (before the shoes came) would have been the PERFECT day for a run, temps in the high 50s!! Then today? Snow and ice. Boo. Hoping I will be well enough to run in them next week!!

  8. I took 2 months off from running. I made sure to keep doing a ton of cross-training so when my knee was heeled I was able to easy back into running!! I think it would definitely be a good idea to take a week or more off if you are experiencing pain....but I am pretty sure those old shoes had something to do with it!!! Keep me updated! Happy New Year!

  9. WHOOOT! SO awesome! =)
    Bummer about your cold...but they'll be waiting for you when you feel better.
    What did you name them? =)

  10. Slow.
    Hopefully we'll have a legal name change for them this year to Fast and Faster =)

  11. THANK you for the sweet comment you left me yesterday, you made my day and I think the world of you!

  12. "slow and steady" is AWESOME! :)
