The other day I was looking at my work shoes, thinking I need a new pair, because this ones are falling apart. While I do have tons of beautiful shoes in my closet, most that have not been worn for a long time, because they hurt my toes. Before I started running, there were many things, like my work shoes, that I never gave more than a second thought to it. Here are a few
Before Running : Oh, I have a meeting today, better wear a dress, with those red heels, and my black pantyhose.
After Running : I'm running after work today, better wear my sports bra, don't want to have to change in Starbucks. Better also not wear a blouse.
Before Running : I love this new pointy blue pumps! they pinch my toe, and are giving me a callus, but they look amazing!
After Running : Curse You blue pointy pumps! why do you hate me so? I still love you, but I'm not wearing you again. Hello ugly black shoes, I love you. You are my best friends... please never fall apart.
Before running : I'm going to have this chocolate donut and coffee... that should last me until lunch.
After running : Oatmeal, greek yogurt, coffee and half of a pastry... you better last me until lunch!
Before Running : I can't wait to stuff my face with burgers, hotdogs, Turkey, tamales and ice cream this holiday.
After Running : I wonder if there is a holiday themed race I can do? And then stuff my face with burgers, hotdogs and ice cream. (<--- some things just don't change).
Shopping for clothes
Before running : Do I need a cute dress for any occasions? how about a cute top?
After Running: I need to find a new black tank top for running, and should check out the shorts and sport bras.
Do you remember some things that were different for you "Before" you started running?
When was the last time you wore your fancy heels?
