running shoes
It's odd: as a mom I lóve buying new shoes, but as a runner I keep postponing it. I find buying running shoes no fun at all.

Why buying running shoes is no fun at all  


You don't get to choose the ones with the most beautiful colors, or the nicest shape. You have to take whatever the expert tells you suits your feet the best. Usually that's a pair of big clumpy shoes, with colors I wouldn't have chosen in a million years.

Looking into the sole of my running shoe


But when I look at the soles of my running shoes I fear the time has definitely come to get me a new pair. So I'll reluctantly fork over a lot of money for shoes I don't like the look off, and I'll tell myself: 'When it comes to running shoes 'no pain ís my gain'!'

My perfect running shoes!


But sometimes when I lie awake at night, I imagine my perfect running shoes: bright pink and sprinkled with little daisies!
