Wifey's Twins

A Sneak Peek Inside Wifey’s House

I’ve got two new babies!

My new twins

As much as I paid for them they feel like new babies. OK, I’m being a tad dramatic, I’m what some might call a little cheap frugal, but this is the most I’ve ever paid for sneakers. I usually search the clearance section, but everyone I’ve spoken to about running insisted that I get fitted for and buy good running shoes.

So I listened. I went to Big Peach Running Co., had my feet analyzed, hopped on their treadmill for a quick run and listened to the very knowledgeable sales guy as he found me the perfect shoes for my feet. Twenty minutes later, I walked out the door with a lighter wallet, peace of mind and two new babies.

After my first run in them I knew I made the right decision and lovingly laid them down for a nap so they would take care of me again on my next run. My daughter asked for her stroller back, but I told her mommy’s twins would be using it for awhile. I tried to squeeze a blanket out of her, too, but little girl wasn’t having it. I’m not sure if she’s adjusting very well to the new additions in the house.

I have a friend that is quite athletic and an avid runner. She recently bought these insoles at aline.com and she says that have dramatically improved her running times. I too am a bit on the frugal side but it's something to look at. :) Have a wonderful day!

I am sure you will have a long and wonderful relationship with your twins....until they get old and you trade them in for new ones ;)

Good luck finding the perfect Marathon plan.

Looks like the shoe stork paid you a visit. Glad to see you are spoiling yourself. Can't wait to hear about the race.

Congrats on your new babies. I'm running in a new pair, too. Here's to many happy miles in them!

PS: Thanks so much for the comment on Mom vs. Marathon. Can't wait to swap running stories!

That is a great purchase I'm sure. Running in bad shoes could ruin the whole experience and lead to shin splints I believe. Have fun!

My best, Lynn
*I did my BC, come look and gawk at me! ;oP

That is too funny! Everyone keeps telling me I need to invest in a new pair of sneaks, but like you, I'm a bit "frugal".

My children got tierd of my old pair, and bought a pair for me. Take good care of the new babies, as they take care of you!

Nice shoes. I plan to get some new ones soon. I am a runner and having been reading your blog for a few years. Glad to see you running again. I am running my first half in April. Can't wait to read your running stories.

Hilarious. But your twins do look kind of chilly. You may need to ask your daughter again for a blankie!
