Woo-hoo! I can honestly say that I have never had a pair of true blue running shoes. I made a goal that if I worked out faithfully this month that I could get some, and I reached my goal! I bought these Asics yesterday at Nordstrom. I was literally running around in the store to make sure that I wanted to dish out the money for them. However, after the first two steps, I knew how great they were! I can't wait to run tomorrow...and it is not often that I say those words!
