These Old New Shoes...

     Woah. So I just got these New Nike Structure Triax's in January when I was all set to run RunDisney's Goofy Challenge and I had no idea that I would completely wear them out by the first weekend of March. But I have. They are toast! My feet are now ready for a brand new spanking pair of kicks. In fact, they are screaming for them!! When I decided to take on Marathon training...I wasn't playing around. Since January I have ran Disney's Goofy Challenge(39.3 miles), Mercedes Marathon, (26.2 miles), Disney's Royal Family 5k (3.1 miles), Disney's Princess Half Marathon (13.1 miles) and Tuscaloosa Half Marathon (13.1) miles. Not to mention the daily training runs in between. No wonder my shoes have HAD it and I can't keep up with the laundry much less my blog lately. That's 94.8 miles within the last 50 days. OMG. This Mama is TIRED!!!
     So as I'm typing this blog post, I was thinking I've lost touch with reality but then I realized that I've fed my family dinner before 6:00pm, cleaned the kitchen, worked a full day at work, sent my little man to Baseball practice, caught up on all emails and have done three loads of laundry and am now having some down time, watching American Idol with the kiddos, catching up on twitter and my blog.... AND I just tweeted with a good friend about this very same thing and I used the hashtag #SuperMoms and #WeRock. Oh yes I did. So all hope is not lost...I'm tired but I'm marathon-trained and I haven't neglected the fam!! yippee!
     The moral to my story today is that I'm very very thankful for my busy life and everything that it takes out of me but I still need new shoes. Retail Therapy and Race Recaps coming soon! :)
