Running and Such..

My running is really going well! I'm up to 2 miles now, which is not much, but I'm simply proud of myself to say the least. One of my presents from my boyfriend was a gift card from Fleet Feet! I was so excited about it! I knew I was going to need a "running" shoe, so he helped with the cost! If you do not know much about running gear, running shoes are QUITE expensive, but you NEED them. It is a MUST in running! My dear friend, Christin, works at Fleet Feet part time, so she helped me find the perfect shoe! I ran in them this afternoon and fell in love! Running feels SO different! I'm even MORE excited about the Half Marathon in Nashville in April! :) Here are my shoes:
Mizuno Wave Rider Shoes
$115.00


Also, this is not on the topic of running, but I found some great deals yesterday! I was out returning, exchanging, etc. I ran by Lands' End and found this ADORABLE green vest on sale for $19.00!!!

I also picked up some Lands' End fitted turtlenecks..Did you find any deals after Christmas??

Love the shoes! I am not a runner at all! I wish I was though..but I always have the hardest time getting into it because I've always hated it!
