Run Happy

I have had such a great day today.

If you have been busy enjoying your weekend, unplugged from the Internet is what you've missed so far:

Max decided I needed to wake up at 5:30 this morning, which I was less than thrilled about.
After several failed attempts at going back to sleep I decided it wasn't worth the fight and I got myself ready for the gym.

I was not expecting to be as sore as I am from yesterday's bootcamp. #PROOF you can kick your own butt!

Sore or not, I was going to weights & kickboxing.
It was an awesome 90 minutes of pure sweat.

After the gym I began my journey for new running sneakers...again.
Lauren was in the market for a new pair as well so she tagged along.
(p.s she's training for her first half marathon, follow her on twitter @lowla017)

The store didn't open until noon so we did a little shopping at one of my favorite local boutiques first.

I could not resist this wallet.
 It's pink AND it has a bow.. meant to be.

I also spotted this bag, which I am currently swooning over:

 If anyone just so happens to be in Ooh La La in Sayville and wants to get this beauty for me...I won't hate it.

We made our way to the running store, and arrived just in time to hear the door unlock
and we were greeted with this sign.

We had the nicest guy helping us.
To start he put me on a machine and my first question was
This this isn't going to weigh me...right?
 Everyone laughed and thankfully he said no.
Bullet dodged.

  According to this handy dandy machine( anyone remember Blue's Clues?) I am completely off balance. I put almost all of my weight in my left foot with most of my pressure in the heel.

This was extremely interesting to me because my left ankle is the one I broke two summers ago AND it bothers me on a constant basis still to this day.
I also have really high arches and overpronate.

Fun Fact:My little running store buddy told me 70% of runners suffer from both of these things.
YAY for being semi-normal!!

 The search began.

I tried on a pair of Sauconys first.
I instantly fell in love with them because they were hot pink and black.
Which sparked a brillant idea by me that I shared with my running store buddy

They should have everyone try the sneakers on blindfolded, that way you don't base them off of the look and really focus on their feel.

I know what you're thinking... why didn't this girl go to Harvard?


Unfortunately for me they didn't feel right, so they stayed in the store.
After trying on 3 pairs of shoes, running/ dancing around the store I found the perfect pair

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12

I spruced them up with some matching purple laces and I cannot WAIT to take them out for a run Monday night.
I picked up my very first NUUN as well in Strawberry Lemonade flavor!
Can anyone tell me WHEN I should have this in my water?

We decided to roam around the town a little more since we had no real plans for the day and stumbled upon the greatest store that has ever existed.

It's called The Crushed Olive.
Inside the store is over 50 different flavors of olive oil and balsamic vinegars for you two sample, mix, and buy.

We were in heaven.

I came home with a bottle of the coconut white balsamic, to which I had with both cucumbers and strawberries.

Now I am ending my weekend the same way I started it,
FRO-YO on the couch while watching the Olympics.

How was your weekend?
