It was a little bittersweet for me. My oldest stepson, Matthew, was home schooled last year, so he was with me 24/7. It wasn't always easy, but it was the best thing for him at the time. Our relationship really grew over the year. I adore my boys!

I became a Kindrunner ambassador a couple months ago, and a couple weeks ago I ordered my first pair of shoes from them! I've been running in my Brooks Pure Flo's for about a year and a half. (And they said they last only 3-500 miles. I blew that WAY out of the water!!) They were the first shoes I wore that didn't give me blisters on my long runs and made my feet feel good. And the first time I wore them I got a 5 minute PR on my 5k!! Well, after putting over 1000 miles on them (I'm guessing, don't know for sure) they started to get a little worn and uncomfortable. So I knew it was time for new ones!
I really like the lightweight shoes, and I love Brooks, so decided to stay with what I knew!
I ordered the Brooks Pure Flo 2's.
Aren't they pretty?? I wore them during my 13 miler last week and my feet were SO happy!
What I love about Kindrunner is that they pay for you to ship them your old shoes, and then they donate them to a charity who makes sure that people in the greatest need receive them! And then they give you a $10 credit to use towards your next pair.
Are your kiddos back in school yet?
What shoes do you run in?
