While I love a new pair of shoes, it does take a few runs to break them in right. These are weird shoes. It's the same shoe I wore for my first marathon so I am quite partial to them. This specific pair is just not the same. The tongue has a weird fold in them that bunches up when the laces are tied. It puts pressure on the top of my foot on the toe bones. It hurts to run. I think I need to get a chiropractor appointment before I can accurately blame the shoes.
The quote today is quite fitting. In the past couple months I have gained nearly 10 pounds and can't seem to shake them. I've had a few too many pity parties for myself and stress at work continues to pile. I know I can cut the 10 pounds easily, but for some reason they just aren't melting away. I have finished the chocolate covered peanuts in my drawer at school so I am ready to cut back now. Yeah, I'll blame the chocolates. :)
