A Good Pair of Shoes for Walking

A Good Pair of Shoes for Walking

When I am wearing a good pair of shoes for walking, I am much more willing to do something active. For example, today, we were trying to decide what to do with our lazy Sunday. When a visit to Park City turned into a marathon walk around the outdoor outlet mall, I didn’t even think about it. Had I been wearing more fashionable shoes, I would have complained and gotten FAR less exercise.

Never underestimate the power of sensible shoes.


The Perfect Running Video from Michael Verdi

By Laura Moncur @ 10:00 am — Filed under:

Michael Verdi has been running a lot lately. While listening to the new Flaming Lips album, Embryonic, he had a musical epiphany that lead to this awesome running video.

It’s only a snippet of a song and a really short video, but it feels like running to me. Thanks for such a great video, Verdi!

WTF, Nike+?!

I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who has trouble with Nike+. It looks like Michael Verdi experienced the same epic fail that I did.

This has been an ongoing problem since the beginning of Nike+. Their insistence on using a clunky Flash interface has truly been their downfall. I can’t wait until RunKeeper has the ability to challenge your friends to races. When they do, there will be no need for Nike+ anymore.


A Quiet Walk An Evening

A Walk in Daybreak

Every night, Mike and I have been taking quick walks to the lake right before the sun goes down. We chose this neighborhood BECAUSE of the lake, so we might as well take advantage of it. It doesn’t hurt that they built a gelato shop next to the lake, of course.

It COULD hurt, actually, but I’ve been ordering the herbal tea with Splenda for my dessert. The paper cup warms my hands as we walk in the chilly autumn weather.

They say a quiet walk an evening helps to keep weight down, but I’ve been enjoying it for what it is: blissful relaxation.
