A few weeks ago I asked a co-worker if she wanted to take part in a charity 5K run/walk our office was participating in.
The exchange went back and forth via email as we pressured one another to participate, and finally I got this: You will have to wear gym shoes though. Can you handle it?
Thanks for the vote of confidence.
I am happy to report that I not only did the whole thing in more than 80 degree heat with humidity that can only come from a swampland, but I'm not sore today, and my feet didn't shrivel up and fall off for wearing a pair of New Balance cross trainers.
Today I am back in heels, and no, there will not be photos of athletic shoes. They're all ugly. I look at the whole event, from wearing athletic shoes to walking/jogging 3.6 miles in almost 90 degree weather all part of my charitable contribution.
