Run, Forrest, Run!

After almost NINE months, I FINALLY bought some new running shoes. I find that I have to buy new shoes close to every 6 months, depending on how often and how far I am running.  When my knees, joints and feet start to hurt, I know it is time for new shoes.
I shop for my running shoes at Kohl's...don't judge. I have lots of reasons:
1. since I buy them every 6 months, it can get pretty expensive.
2. I can try a new pair, go for a run, then take them back if I think they are horrible.
3. I get amazing deals on shoes
4. There is a store less than 5 miles from work, so I can browse/buy while on my lunch hour.

Ok so not LOTS but 4 is more than a couple =) Anyhow, here are my new shoes:

So they are $60 shoes...Kohl's had them on sale for $44.99....THEN I used my Kohl's charge and got an additional 30% off!! TOTAL: $31.50!!! WHAAAAAAT?!
I don't care if you think you know that I should go to a specialty shoe place.  For now, these types of deals are working for me. =)
AND aren't they so pretty?! =)
I also helped my sissy pick out some new shoes to run in and they are super comfy. I would have actually bought those except they didn't have the right size...I needed a half size bigger =/ oh well these pink lovelies make me happy!!
I can't wait to try them out this weekend.
Happy Friday!

I am an avid runner and always buy cheap shoes! I hate having them add up when you have to buy them so often. My most recent pair I got at JC Penny for $20! I am one of those runners that's blessed to wear custom orthodics, so once I change out that insole, it doesn't matter! Happy runs to you.
