{FITNESS} that time i won $100 & bought new shoes!

its true! 
i bought a brand new pair of shoes for $5!
what the what!?!

back in december // january, weight watchers ran a twitter campaign called #startsimpletowin.
the way it worked was : you tweeted out one of your 2014 goals and included the hashtag. 
they picked 50 random winners to win a $100 gift card.
i was a winner {woot woot!}

the gift card took almost 4 months to get here, BUT i received a $100 american express gift card!
my last pair of training shoes have a huge split in the side {i roll out when i run} ; so i knew i would use the money on a new pair of shoes for my upcoming races // rides this summer.

i walked up to my favorite running store in the cities {how lucky that they are 1 block away?!} and tried on some shoes.

i was pretty sure before i even started that i wanted a pair of new balance. they manufacture *SOME* of their shoes in the US  & i love what they stand for.

i purchased a pair of the *super brand new* new balance fresh foam shoes! 

the technology is awesome and come on ; how sharp do they look?! 
they feel amazing! they have thick foam without feeling like platforms, they run smooth and feel pretty light.
its still been too slushy & snowy to take them out, but oh my goodness, i love them! 

tell us : what are you running in? 

i did receive a $100 gc from weight watchers {and their partners} ; but nobody asked me to blog. but, you already knew i was going to say that ;)
