I had an interesting realization yesterday morning—> I may be spoiling Brooke a tiny bit in the morning. Every morning when I get her out of her crib we lay on the couch and I scratch her back until she is fully awake and ready to party. Yesterday after her back scratch I made her banana pancakes.
I don’t think either of us would have it any other way.
Megan and I are now neighbors and so that means we go to the same church meetings together again just like we did as kids when we were neighbors.
The sun was right in our eyes.
I think Brooke is planning on taking over this blog once I retire because she has been running like crazy lately. Who needs to walk when you can run?!
She is pretty fast too.
The normal family Sunday dinner. We had pork chops, veggies, rolls and my sister’s amazing creation—> garden fresh tomatoes, garlic (LOTS), salt, fresh basil leaves, mozzarella and then you broil them in the oven for a few minutes and they are too good.
This may look like a 5 year old’s choice of ice cream toppings but no, it is mine.
I have been testing out the Glycerin 12s this last month and I have been loving them. I really wanted a shoe with more cushioning and a little more support than what I normally wear (the PureProject line) while coming back from a running break and these ones did the trick. The extra cushioning has been great for long runs but they are also crazy light (9.1 ounces.. the lightest edition of the Glycerins) and so I have been doing my speed work in them too. Gotta love a shoe that you can do it all in.
A few fun new things about the 12s:
-They added a new cushioning technology (Super DNA cushioning= the 12s have 25% more cushioning than the 11s).
-The bottom of these shoes include ideal pressure zones which evenly distribute the pressure on your foot when you land.
-The heel of the 12s are also a little bit more narrow than the 11s which may help a runner to land more mid foot rather than heel strike.
-The rounded heel allows you to align your foot more efficiently as you are running… being an efficient runner is our goal right:)
-The 12s offer that same FLOAT experience that the Transcends do which really is a fun feeling when running.
The Glycerin 12s are great for runners looking for a neutral shoe that is light and has tons of cushioning.
And the most important part… Have you ever seen a prettier running shoe;)
I’ve asked you in the past about your FAVORITE running shoes but I was wondering if there are any shoes that you have tried that simply did not work for you!! What ones were they and why do you think they didn’t work out for you?
