Ok so I've been looking online unsuccessfully for a new pair of summer sandals. I've started early because last year I waited too late and started looking only a few days before vacation, and last minute shopping is never a good idea. Then by the time I decided what I wanted it was the end of the season, and I hated to pay full price for shoes I was convinced should be on sale. Then I forgot about it. Then they weren't for sale any more. Stupid. So anyway I've started shopping early, and I really only have a few requirements so I don't know why I can't find anything.
*Color: Brown or Camel but not Nude
*Comfortable for every-day wear but not granny-style
*Can wear with shorts or capris for a casual look
*Can wear with a skirt for dressier look
*Not shiny, patent, or animal Print
*No ankle strap cause that makes my cankles look fatter
*Not a flat cause some heel helps my cankles look smaller
*Not a 4" heel cause I carry a kid around all the time, and I don't need any broken bones
*Maybe a wedge
*Under $50 cause a girl can't just wear sandals. Nobody wants to see that.
*Needs to look exactly like the shoe I wanted to buy last summer
A Half marathon - 13.2 miles - been there, done that, got a really big medal! It was a blast (a really exhausting blast but a blast nevertheless). Kevin and Kyle beat their time goals, and Meg and I pushed through and finished really strong. Running through the last 50 ft tunnel of cheering supporters was amazing! Now we are tired. If you haven't, you really should marathon. If I can do it anyone can - I am definitely not a natural . Training starts out easy and works up slowly. You can do whatever pace works for you, and belive me, you will see every kind of runner and walker during the race. It's a great accomplishment. Plus you get lots of free food at the end and no one cares that you just scarffed down two hot dogs, a bag of pretzels, a banana, a smores debbie, choc. milk, and then went to lunch!
Thanks for all the encouragement to keep going! It was def. worth it!
