Shoes!

Going to join a new meme today called Two Shoes Tuesday from Josie Two Shoes! How it works is each week Josie writes a one word prompt where you can then share a short story, poem, essay, thought, or, photo relating to that word. We'll since today's topic is about shoes......
These are my current ones! They are just regular tennis shoes that my dad got me last Christmas! As far as shoes go I usually like to get running shoes, like the ones pictured below.....
These are my old shoes. I've had them since late 2007. I still use them, just not as often. Only when I have to get into the mud or, dirt. Or, when I feel like running, since they are running shoes!
The only thing that I don't like about running shoes is that I slip easily when I walk on wet tiles. My new ones pictured above have a flat surface so, I don't slip as easily....
I like my new shoes better but, I sometimes miss my old running shoes! I like to run so, running shoes have always been my choice for shoes when I was getting new ones but, lately since I have gotten out of high school and am not running track anymore. I don't really have a need for running shoes, just occasionally when I feel like running. I might miss them but, just plain old regular tennis shoes are enough for me.
I've thought about going running again, maybe running the 26 mile marathon but, I haven't decided if I want to do that. I tried running the mile on the trail that I ride my bike on and I got tired before I got about half a mile. It was in June and it was really hot. Also I had missed the deadline....
It ended on June 21st, I think. Maybe i'll try again, get some new running shoes! I don't know, for now i'm sticking with my Nike's!

Not Good Day to be Outside!

We had alot of scattered showers and thunderstorms today in Houston. I saw a lightning bolt strike the ground right in front of me when I was driving, the ground shook, it was pretty cool.
