These are my new sneaks. --> I love my purple shoes. I love my bright purple laces even more. Dear hubby and I went to REI this weekend because I had a giftcard AND a 20% off coupon- and this is what I walked out with. These running shoes are made by Brooks and are made of that super breathable mesh material. Supposedly they're the most "cushy" of the mesh shoes though, says the shoe saleslady. I took them out for an innaugural run on Sunday, and loved them! If I am going to be serious (which I am!!) about those new goals I set, new sneaks, consistent runs, and less baked goods will do me good!
