Bloggers Being a Little Bitch & A Link-Up



Bloggers being a little bitch again and not letting me upload ANY pictures

I think she's holding a grudge since I told her off in my post yesterday. . .

Sorry I'm not sorry for saying you had a stick up your ass, Blogger

Since I ONCE AGAIN (looking at you, Blogger) can`t post anything involving pictures I will just skip to part two of what was supposed to be todays post

Linking up with Laura and Mel for:

What brand and style are your running shoes?
I work-out in Reebok Easytones. I'd show you a picture if Blogger wasn't being Ms. Pissy Pants :(

Why are they your favourite?
Because they're purple? Honestly, I don`t have anything to compare them to, they are the most expensive pair of running shoes I have ever purchased and when I tried them on and walked around the store I felt like I was walking on clouds (it didn`t hurt that I got them at Reeboks outlet store in Vegas and they were at least half off the regular price). I`m not a runner (yet!) so I`m not sure how well they will do regarding running but when I work out in them they don`t give me any problems

Have you had any bad experiences with other brands? Which ones do you avoid?
This is super embarassing to admit but I once bought a pair of running shoes from Wal-Mart for $8 (yes, EIGHT dollars) because I was a poor college student and didn`t feel like dropping cash on running shoes when it could be better spent on booze - priorities ya know.  I was working out with a friend at our College`s fitness centre and didn`t think there was anything wrong with my shoes . . . until I started getting foot pains, knee pains, etc. . . It is NEVER okay to work out in $8 Wal-Mart shoes!! N-E-V-E-R

Do you have more than one pair of running shoes for different types of workouts?
I have a pair of Nike running shoes - not sure what style- that I used in gym class in Grade 10 (a billion years ago it seems) and they were the ones I used until I forgot them in SK while I was in school in AB and bought the horrible $8 shoes. . . I reverted back to the billion year old Nikes until I bought the Easytones a year ago in Vegas.  So I am definitely no expert in the running shoe department! BUT I am hoping to get some insight into some good ones for outdoor running through this link up for when I start in the Spring (and I don`t want any comments about how ``just because its Winter doesn`t mean you can`t run outside`` - I live in small town Saskatchewan and they don`t plow the whole 20 streets that exist ALL WINTER so if I even attempted to run on them I would probably definitely break something)

Have you ever been fit for a shoe by a specialist? Did you find this helpful?
Unfortunately no. Until I reconnected with the blogging world I didn`t even know that shoe specialists existed! I guess thats what you get when you live in the middle of nowhere . . .

So once again here is to hoping that Blogger can get her poop in a group so that tomorrow I can FINALLY post the one blog post that I actually pre-planned! Wish me luck. . .
