Getting Fit 4 Fall!

I am excited to be one of the "Sole Sisters" joining PlanetShoes in their Get Fit for Fall campaign!

What is it, you ask?  Well, Get Fit for Fall (#Fit4Fall) is an online campaign challenging YOU to accomplish your fitness goals! Whether it be running a race or faithfully following a fitness regimen, it’s finally time to conquer your personal exercise woes with the help of PlanetShoes and your fellow fitness pals. Contestants who complete the challenge and meet their goal will be entered to win a $500 gift card to PlanetShoes! 

My goal is to regularly run and increase my mileage for my upcoming half marathon (my 4th!) at the end of October. 

In exchange for my participation in this challenge, I was fortunate to be able to choose a new pair of sneakers from PlanetShoes.   And oh, the choices!  I finally settled on something I had never tried before.  Minimalist running shoes.  Meaning super lightweight.  As if you are running barefoot.

Aren't they purty?

Well, I learned a good lesson.  Barefoot running just isn't for me.  I could barely get out of my neighborhood.  I am SUPER heavy on my feet.  Like Hulk-smash heavy.  And thus?  I need support. Lots and lots of support on my feet.

But those New Balance from PlanetShoes?  Are simply perfect for my crossfit training!  And for doing what it seems like I spend half my life doing...

Bleacher-sitting and cheering on my boyz!
