New Shoes!

My Asics Gel Kayano 17

Running is a huge part of my life so when a year goes by and it's time for a new pair, I take the process very seriously. 
Each foot it created differently so personally the Nike shoes are too narrow for me, but shoes like Asics and New Balance sneakers are better for my wide foot.

When I picked up these shoes, I was surprised with how light they were. All of the weight was in the heel of the shoe, which is really important to absorb shock and keep from damaging your hips and legs. They came in pink, blue, or this awesome green. In addition, there are these little holes everywhere, making this shoe incredibly breathable. 

I've only worn them once to try the size out and was very happy. Of course, it takes about 3 sessions to break in a shoe so I did get an awkward blister under my big toe. But I can't wait to break these bad boys in even more.

Happy running!

16 Handles

I just had 16 Handles for the first time and it was delicioussss


While the eurotart was spectacular and only 70 calories per 1/2 cup, I found Pinkberry's tart yogurts to be superior and more plentiful in flavors (you haven't lived until you've tried the pomegranate or watermelon). But I loved the alternative flavors like red velvet and graham cracker. The toppings were unlimited as well (rainbow cookies!). So glad I finally made it down to one of the few stores in NYC.

And maybe it’s a bad thing to self serve myself…hard to limit my toppings. Pity.

Farmer's Market

I woke up around 8:30 in the morning to drive over to the farmer's market held in my town. I never went to ours before so it was exciting to see all of the fresh and naturally grown veggies, fruit, plants and more.
Look at the beautiful fresh vegetables!

Everything was so fresh because they were picked this morning. And very reasonably priced!

Heirloom tomatoes can be the most ugly yet most unique vegetables!

I ended up getting some broccoli, tomatoes, corn, beans, kale and fresh lettuce with the roots still attached. Can't wait for dinner!!

If your town has a farmer's market, check it out! You'll save money, get fresh and organic, and you'll be supporting local farmers who deserve our money!
