Oh em gee it has been a long week!! I started my new position this week and there is so much to learn that my head is spinning. I know it takes a while to learn everything but unfortunately I am a bit crazy in the sense that I want to know all the things immediately. I will be patient. Kinda.
After my first week I will say that I am beyond excited. It is the opposite of my last position. All they need from me is that I do my job. Did I mention there is a pantry/fridge full of healthy food, a ping pong table and amazing people? Best of all–there is no drama. Yes. *praise hands emoji*
But I digress. It’s time for Friday Fitness and a pretty amazing giveaway!
Asics Gel-Noosa Tri 10
A few months ago when I attended the Shoebuy event, I mentioned how much I was into the presentation that ShoeBuy Expert Sean shared. I even asked him to drop some knowledge on the blog about Minimalist vs. Maximalist running shoes!
Love at first sight
The first time I saw the Asics Gel-Noosa’s was in a Foot Locker Window on 34th Street. I was completely in love. I temporarily rose off my feet with hearts in my eyes, Daffy Duck style. I didn’t care what they were for, I had to have them.
Beautiful bright colors in a awesome design, I was in love.
They were perfect for
looking real cute in the gym my cross training activities such as spin and boot camp. When I caught the running bug, I ran in them…a lot–way before I was educated on how to choose the perfect running shoe. I stopped running in them after that, but I still missed them!
Running Shoe Family Members?
I came up to Sean after his presentation to discuss why my Asics Gel Noosa’s felt so great when I run in them. To be perfectly honest, I felt like I was cheating on my Brooks Running shoes!
Sean let me know that it made perfect sense that I was having a sneaker affair with the Noosa’s because they are similarly built for my slight pronation issues. Bazinga! It all made sense now.
Shoebuy provided me with a pair of Gel Noosa’s to review. You already see that they are gorgeous but what you don’t see is how good they feel! There is the appropriate cushion and comfort. I am a size 8.5 in shoes and I always size up in sneakers and the 9 is perfect! What I love about them is the fact that they have the lace or no lace option. I love these shoes so much I can’t wait to break them in with all of these crazy marathon miles.
Shoebuy is partnering with BAM for $50 credit giveaway! The cool part is that you don’t have to buy sneakers! You can buy some new fitness gear or even a new pair of stilettos! Who knows maybe the kids need back to school stuff! Your credit your choice! Good luck!
