How can you tell that shizznit is about to get real? Well, I’d say that this picture is a pretty darned good example of exactly how serious I am:
If you aren’t sure what you’re looking at, those are my new running shoes, which I might add were not inexpensive. I mean, they aren’t inlaid with gold or anything (which is good, because gold is heavy), but these puppies cost a good deal more clams than my typical pair. These are also the only single-purpose shoes I can ever recall purchasing…well, unless you count my hockey skates, but that’s kind of a horse of a different color.
In others, my standard, bought-on-clearance-for-the-end-of-style-year multi-purpose cross trainers these aren’t.
So, have shoes, will glide like the wind, right?
Um, yeah, don’t worry, I’m guessing you’ll have plenty of time to step out of my lumbering way when you see these neon green puppies thudding heavily in your direction.
Let’s just hope I live up to owning an actual pair of running shoes dedicated to, you know, running.
