new sneakers!

I decided that it was time to invest in a new pair of sneakers. I bought my previous sneakers last June and decided it was time for something new. One thing I have to say about my sneakers is that because they were grey they really haven't shown much wear, even though I have worn them in all types of weather. Something to keep in mind!

I purchased these Nikes:

 I'm hoping the black will maintain as well as the grey did. I bought them for $59.99 at Winners. One con I have about them is that the tongue is attached to the inside of the shoe. I guess this would prevent it from moving around while running; however it makes it really hard to pull the shoe on. One major pro is the insole is something called 'Comfort Footbed'. It's basically like memory foam for your foot:

I actually haven't worn them running yet. I have a hard time committing  to a new shoe!! I went for a run today (miracle!) and wore my old sneakers. Do you have a hard time deciding on a new shoe?

Following on my homemade vs pre-made trend I ended up making granola bar this evening. I used this recipe from Peanut Butter Runner (one of my favorite blogs). I left out the coconut because I'm not really a fan. For dried fruit I used raisins and also added in some dry roasted almonds. Prior  to putting it in the freezer it smelled AMAZING:

I actually ended up licking the remnants out of the bowl. Can't wait to try them!
