Sketchers? Really? Not a brand that generally comes to mind when I think of solid running shoes, but I'll give 'em a shot - count me in :)

Unfortunately, with a race this weekend and having planned my mini-taper before realizing it was national running day, I'm not running today, but I will be biking. Does that count?

Oh, and I'm a follower (duh)!

Ahhh I want those shoes! I don't think I am going to running on National Running Day. How ironic right? I am still in recovery mode and not about to pay $25 to use the hotel gym and it is hot as hades here in LV. Oh well, maybe I will celebrate by registering for a race. LOL!

I celebrated national running day by a memorial run for my fallen treadmill (but you knew that). I will hopefully be getting my little guy in the jogging stroller tonight (even if it is for a very short run). I need to get him back in the habit. New treadmill or not, having my treadmill break does remind me that I really do like running outside sooooo much more. It is worth the "hassle" of making the kids do what I ask of them. I have gotten lazy in being a "tough" parent and have been letting the kids make way too many decisions. There is always a bigger reason behind the things that happen in our lives. I love exploring what those reasons are!

Those shoes looks so comfortable. One should have a pair of good shoes for running. Thanks for dropping by my blog and hope to see you often.

Running and I are taking a little break. (I still run at least once a week but I'm not training for anything or letting running take over my lief like it has in the past year.) Running gave me a gift for National Running Day, a gorgeous, soul-inspiring run on Sunday that reaffirmed my love of movement and gave me a long, thought-provoking meditative running sessions, just what I needed!

Hey Julie! I celebrated national running day with a nice leisurely run on the treadmill. I am just getting back to running after an ankle injury, so I'm taking it easy for now.
Also, I just subscribed to your blog's RSS!

This is nice. For my part, I choose running shoes based on flat footed people. Being as a flat footer, I have certain structures to follow for my foot safety. podiatrists
