New Super comfy shoes

I had purchased another pair of biking shorts at REI over the weekend and purchased the wrong size.  If I would have tried them on there - I would have figured that out - but I HATE to try on clothes at the store.  I generally can tell by the cut if something will fit and if it doesn't I am fine with returning it for the correct size.  This was simply the wrong size - I thought I had picked up a medium - but had a small instead.

Anyway I took them back today to exchange them for a medium and also to look for a wind / rain jacket for my bike.  I found a really super bright florescent jacket with zippered sleeves - so that it would become a vest.  Love it.

And I found these shoes.

First pair of dansko's

Super comfy / a little heal / and plenty of room for tootsies

wow this photo makes my right calf look huge!!!

I saw these shoes this weekend - but didn't try them on . . . OK I always try on shoes - just not clothes.
These are super comfy and "sort of" stylist.  I can't wait to wear them to work tomorrow.

Does everyone have too many shoes?  I know that I do.

On the running / biking front:
Ran a short 2 miles on Sunday, July 4th
Biked 35 miles on Tuesday
Ran 40 minutes tempo this morning - I was going to bike - but my legs were too tired.
Tomorrow I am back to work and am planning on starting the morning with a 4 mile run and then bike to work.  I am hoping that the rain stays away or gets over with by the time I leave for work.  

Time for bed - tomorrow will be my first morning up at 5:30 in a week.



  1. Loving those shoes and your pretty painted toes!

  2. totally hate trying on clothes, but even worse for me is taking them back... so that means a lot of times I just don't buy it...seriously it's sad!

  3. What woman doesn't have too many shoes? Those look really cute and comfy!

    Thanks for your comments on Robin's blog. I guess a metatarsal fracture is pretty common for runners, but my Costco adventure made it extra special!

    I just read your info. Just amazing. I'm glad to know you're beating cancer.
