So after weeks of waiting - my new shoes finally arrived. I was so excited I almost skipped my run to just try them on. But I didn't. When I returned to the store after the run and opened the box the new shoes were in; well let's just say it wasn't what I expected.
What to do.... shoes I've been waiting weeks for... and they were a bit... LOUD. Not that I've ever shied away from living loud... parts of me can live loud... like my earrings, or maybe a red pair of Maryjane's, but balanced with a neutral (read all black) outfit.
These shoes are literally one of a kind and I've been assured that I am the only person in southern Ontario with a pair. (I think it may remain that way for a while). I've slept on my disappointment and decided to embrace it...
My new shoes scream I AM FAST! Which is a good thing for me. I`m not sure the name MIzuno gave them, but I`m calling them `Wild Thing`
So in celebration of my new shoes I will also post pictures of me doing the Wild Thing Yoga pose which is tied with the Dancer pose as my favourite all time pose.
Start with a downward facing dog....
Turn it into a three legged-dog....
Flip over and unleash your wild thing.... (I think it feels crazier than it looks)
Oh.... right.... the shoes.... you tell me - Wild Thing?
I will be getting another pair of shoes to offset my wild thing shoes... they will not be so wild... a little boring to balance out the crazy.
