running buddies!

496_469_Ali-Larter-Josh-Duhamel-Help-Launch-Reebok-RealFlex-4Have you seen the new Reebok commercial?  These are the new Flex running shoesI heart the commercial!  The little squares have cute faces that talk… have to see it to know what I’m talking about….or you probably think I’m crazy! ha!  I think they call them “running buddies”.  I want some running buddies.  The commercial is CUTE, but the shoes actually do seem appealing.   Reebok says that these shoes “have realflex sensors that work together to promote natural movement while protecting you from the elements.”  I am in the market for some new running shoes.  I believe you are suppose to get new shoes after around 500 miles or so.  I haven’t kept track of the miles on my shoes, but I know I have had them for awhile.  reebok-realflex-76-buddies-commercial-ad-video-1-600x337 Does anyone have a favorite running shoe?  I have heard from many people that Asics are the way to go.  But they are also normally around $100!!!!  No thanks.  At least not right now! haha! 

Mr. Tim surprised me with this pink arm band for my ipod last week!  He ordered it from Amazon.  Before, I would just carry my ipod in my hand while I ran.  That was annoying! Thanks husband!


I am also in the market for some capri pants for running and sport earphones.  :)

Only 2 weeks left until my very first 5k!!!!!!!!!  eeek!

My hubby just got some Saucony's from The Starting Block over on Republic Road. They do this run assessment to determine your running style so they fit you in the best shoe. They have some expensive shoes, but also some that are fairly reasonable...and the assessment is free!

I have a pair of Saucony's that I really love. I got specially fitted for them and they did wonders for my running!
