Keep on Running
I set out to John Lewis last week with one goal in mind. To find the least ugly running shoes in existance and buy them.
I am most emphatically not a trainer girl. I have owned the same pair since I was about 17 and since then they have been worn to every single occiasion since where I could not get away with a high heel, or at least a stylish brogue. When I bought them they were very much 'fashion' trainers though, and as it's got warmer and I've started running again in earnest I decided the time had come to actually buy something that didn't give me shin splints...
I'm not quite sure if my quest to find a non-ugly (in my eyes anyway!) running shoe succeeded, but they are light and bouncy as air! Ok, I would have rather spent the money on something pretty, but with the Aussie Lucious Light challenge coming up, I am on a mission to start looking after myself a bit better. Plus they're Aussie colours too!
Now I've actually got to make myself get out there and use them, so I'm after some good running music. My favourites at the moment are The Chalets and The Hairspray Soundtrack. Any recommendations for fun upbeat music to get my jog on to?
