Day One Hundred Fifty-One

I got my Vibrams!!

They're pretty, huh?

I got the Vibram Sprint. I had tried on three different types: the Classic, the Sprint, and the Bikila. The Classic and Sprint were basically the same thing, though the Sprint has a velcro strap on the top and velcro heel straps too (as you can see from the picture). The Classic is more of a slip-on shoe and isn't the best for running, so I put that aside. The Bikila was cool because it had more grip on the bottom and was super comfortable as it covered my entire foot, but I wasn't sure if I wanted all that padding. Oh, and it was $30 more than the Sprint, so I went with the Sprint!

I went on a walk with them today and they're great! Very very comfy. I can't wait to start running!

So today, on top of going to Runners Hi for my shoes (who offer an awesome military discount, if you're looking for shoes in Hawaii), we also stopped at Bed, Bath and Beyond (I got a new mixing bowl) and Chili's for lunch. We were planning on going to California Pizza Kitchen, but the wait was too long for our hungry tummies!

On the way home, we stopped by the PX so I could get some last minute things for Brandon's Christmas presents. I think I'm all set! Now I need to wrap everything and send it off. I always spend way too much on him, but I just can't help it, I love spoiling him! Yes, Brandon, you can open your presents early :P

Now, I leave you with this:

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  4. I've always been curious about these shoes. We don't see many people around here wearing them in the winter but I've seen them in the summer and always did a double take. Hope they work great for you!
