What is it about the power of shoes? Sometimes they can make or break an outfit, but sometimes they can make or break you. The former being the 2 3/4″ black heels I mentioned wearing to Club Night. I remember the first time I wore them was to our company’s client party 2 years ago. I don’t know what it was about those shoes…but man, I just remember strutting around like I f*cking owned the place. And maybe…I did a little of that this latest time I wore them? 🙂
As for shoes that can break you-well you know my long saga about finding the right running shoes. That saga continued this weekend as I returned my Mizuno Wave Nirvanas and swapped them for a pair of Brooks Adrenalines. After looking at both side-by-side on the treadmill it looked like the Mizunos were actually a little too controlling. Hindsight-I probably should have known that, as the Nirvanas fall into the same category as the Asics Kayanos and Saucony Hurricanes-neither of those I liked. So…I tried out the new shoes for a loop of the park today and they felt great!! I think these will be keepers. At least til they come out with an upgrade! (BTW-PartyRunner, if you’re reading this, I thought about you and your whole Adrenaline dilemma-as these were the 6’s, so I hoped they’d work better for me than they did for you!!)
As usual, the weekend just went by way too quick. There was a going-away party at Phebe’s last night for a Flyer teammate who’s moving to Cali this month. That was a lot of fun, even the part where a few of us got lemons/limes thrown at us for loudly singing the song that I am currently listening to 🙂 But a little sad-I’ll miss her, though I know she’ll be back visiting NYC quite a bit.
weekend capped off with a (long) Flyer exec board meeting and semi-watching the Oscars. Man, the time away from the office seems to fly by. That’s ok…my co-worker pal from Miami will be in town this week!! I’m psyched-though we talk every day, he hasnt been to NYC in 2 years. This looks to be a pretty fun week…the resurrection of the “MS and Flygirl Show” (names changed to protect the innocent 🙂 )
