New shoes
Today was my second time out in my new running shoes.  (The last pair was over 400 miles, and the lining at the right heel had started to disintigrate so it was time.)  New shoes are always nice, they're so bouncy and clean.  When I had gone shopping for these shoes a few weeks ago I had tried a few things on, jogged around the store, and narrowed it down to two pairs.  At that point I usually pick based on what matches my tattoo - heh.  But this time neither pair fit that criteria.  I asked about other colors, but my running store doesn't always have access to every color the shoe comes in.  So.. my new shoes are pink.

Actually that doesn't really convey it.  My new shoes are PINK.  Like 'I should run faster and be thinner to be allowed to wear these shoes in public' pink.  It's a weird motivation to feel like I have to live up to the shoes, but whatever helps, right?

My housemate has those shoes! They're sitting under the coffee table right now and they are GORGEOUS. If only my feet weren't a size larger...

They are pretty nifty, and they feel good on my feet which is the point. They're just so bright. Also, this means I will likely be sadder the first time I wear them out in the rain or otherwise get them dirty.

Heh. I love how running shoes lately seem to come in more and more gaudy color combinations. I have always loved shoes that are ridiculously colorful. For example: these are my shoes.

When I was at the running store there was an older lady there with her son picking out shoes and she kept saying "too gaudy". The poor clerk was all "but what about the fit" and this woman wouldn't even consider putting anything neon on. Heh.

Oooh I like your shoes too. I guess I just have to get used to crazy bright shoes.
