New Shoe Day!

The beginning of school must be near. The AtHomeFam hit the shoe store this afternoon.

The Princess scored a pair of black shoes that can work for school or church. The Talker scored a new pair of running shoes that should carry him around the track form any laps during his whole class running time. Every kid at the school runs laps several times a week to supplement the PE classes that they attend only every third day.

Old habits are hard to break, and even though I don't really have anywhere to go in the near future, I couldn't resist getting a new pair of running shoes, too. The Boss Lady hardly ever gets to wear non-dress shoes to work, so she skipped out on the sports shoe fiesta.

With the purchase of the shoes, I would say that we are ready for the first day of school. And we got it done more than 2 weeks ahead of time.

I "had to" stop running several months ago because of my back. But yesterday, after considering yet another 30-minute bore-fest on the elliptical, I decided to try a run. Got in 2.5 miles before my hips and back shut down. Today, I feel like that printer on "Office Space" that they took out into the field and beat the crap out of!
Hope your new running shoes treat you better!

Ohm I don't run, except to the store, in a car, to buy Dr Pepper.

But I like the running shoes vs tennis shoes or BBall shoes.

Maybe I'll start wearing soccer cleats next time.
