Boots! Boots! Boots! (and a 1/2 marathon)
Happy Wednesday! This weather makes me want to roll around in a pile of leaves. Don't get me wrong - I love summer. And the hot sun, tanning on the beach and a cold beer. But there is something about Fall that just...makes me so damn happy. McCoy and I got married 2 years ago - IN THE FALL! On November 3rd. It was a perfect fall day. Perfect!!! OK - onto boots.
So - with the cooler weather comes cool shoes. Boots! And I am on a mission to find some kick ass (but casual) boots to wear to the Wine Fest on Saturday at Town Point Park in Norfolk. I've mentioned it before - Wine Fest is amazing. Drink some wine, eat some cheese, mingle with friends and...wear some new boots!! I've spent the last 48 hours searching for boots. Zappos.com Endless.com Piperlime.com But nothing has really caught my eye...so I am gonna hit up Off Broadway Shoes on my lunch break today. Have you seen any cute boots? I'm looking for like - a riding type boot. In either black or brown. Low heel - or no heel. And under $100.
Here's some I thought about ordering...but shopping for shoes on-line is sooo hard!!!!
I will let you know if I find/buy anything on my lunch break today... but before I head out. I have to give a "SHOUT OUT" to my big sister Melissa. She lives in OBX/Nags Head, North Carolina. Her name is Melissa - but I call her "Sissy". Anyway - Sissy is running a HALF MARATHON next month. OMG. I am so proud of her. WOW! I could never do that. But I talked to her this morning - and she was getting ready for a 9 mile run. Yesterday - she ran 8 miles. That's Sissy, McCoy & I in the picture below...Sissy's on the end w/ the brown hair.
Now I'm not knocking my sister - she's always been a healthy girl. Works out on occasion - but works on her tan more than she works out. HA! And when she told our family she was training for a 1/2 Marathon...honestly, I never thought she would follow through with it. But she is!!!! I can barely run 3 miles without needing a water break and a rest. So my mom, dad, McCoy and I are gonna go to Nags Head that weekend to cheer her on. And then - celebrate with some beers after. I love after race parties. And I love my sister. Run Sissy Run! I might train to do the Shamrock with her... *might*. Maybe I should read these books for motivation....
Off to shop/enjoy my lunch break...Talk to you on the radio @ 3pm. XOXO, WooWoo (The Non-1/2 Marathon Running Sister)
