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)
