Jolly Ranchers


Is it just me or do these shoes look like Jolly Ranchers??

The normal colored shoes in the background are my beloved Mizuno Wave Riders.  So are the candy shoes.  See, when I find a shoe I like I've been known to buy multiple pairs.  Like 5 or 6 pairs.

So when I found the candy shoes here for $62 {50% off} with free shipping I couldn't help myself.  Steve was so excited too! ;)

I could have purchased another pair identical to my current shoes but these look like way more fun...

Yay!  Today felt like I crossed a milestone. ☺ Now to stretch and ice to avoid what feels like plantar fasciitis beginning...

In running news, I'm finishing week 9 of my 10K program.  I can't believe I only have 4 weeks left!  Next week begins mixing in intervals which I'm actually excited about.  I'm not at the point where I care about being super fast but I know the intervals will still help me improve as an overall runner.

As for my overall health, I was told today at work that I need to have a new picture taken because the old one doesn't look like me.  Yay!  I'm still going with the "no scale" approach but my clothes are definitely looser and I guess it's becoming obvious to some of the people around me.

3 sets of biceps, shoulders, and triceps + 5 elbow planks. I'd rather be running but this will do for today...

I'm struggling with a little plantar fasciitis in my right foot but so far stretching, rolling a golf ball along the bottom of my foot, and icing are doing the trick.  I've been really tempted to add a 4th day of running to my week but for now I know I'm better off cross-training instead so that my foot doesn't get worse.


Oh, and if you happen to be the crafty type and you are looking for something to do, I have this new tutorial available that is super easy and fun.  Try it out and in about 15 minutes you will have your own non-slip headband that won't cost you $20!

Have a happy weekend!


  1. Cute shoes! I'm gonna treat myself after I get a few weeks into my 5k app. Just finished week 1! Am also eating proteins only for 14 days. Fun, fun! Ha.

  2. I have some mizuno wave riders for shorter runs. I love their lightness. I think they may weigh 8.5 ounces each.

    My long runs are in New Balance with a little more padding on the front.

    1. The lightness is my favorite part of the wave riders... that and the colors of course. :)
