what i wore:
top: maude via langford market
necklace: forever 21
skirt: american apparel
sandals: merona via target

where: shoe store, church

i wore this outfit shopping…for running shoes.

i decided that i’m going to start working out a bit more. whether it’s biking, swimming, running or walking, i need to be more active. i played four sports in high school and two in college (softball one year and volleyball for three years), so i think i was burnt out for a while. and then i hurt my knee while training for a marathon, and it hasn’t been the same since.

eric and i signed up for a 5k last month…i ended up walking it. eric ran the whole thing and did well. i think (hope) that most of the problem is that i haven’t gotten new shoes for at least eight years. so eric and i went to get me fitted for some running shoes.

by design only i would have chosen the nike free run, but i need more comfort than that for my knees and hips. i decided on the asics gel nimbus. my brother, sister and eric wear these shoes and they love them. i plan to show you a walking/running outfit soon! if you’re a runner, my friend taylor has a running style blog that you might want to check out!
