That's how many miles I ran this week!

Brooks PureFlow 2's.  Love them.  I have read a lot of reviews of the various shoes in the Brooks PureProject line (I'm a relatively recent convert to Brooks, and I love them) and have been curious.  I have a pair of true minimal shoes (NB Minimus) that I have a love/hate relationship with, so I was intrigued by the idea of something slightly more minimal but still a little on the traditional running shoe side.  I tried on all of the shoes in the line and found these to fit the best.  Besides...who doesn't need a pair of hot pink running shoes??  

While I was debating them I got a text from a friend about meeting for lunch.  I mentioned what I was doing and she said, "when it comes to shoes, the answer is always yes."  Sold :)  

For some reason I have not been into running by myself lately.  Usually it doesn't bother me, but for some reason I just can't seem to get into it right now.  Fortunately this happened after my long run on Sunday.  I went to run group on Tuesday, then ran with Brittany on Wednesday and Thursday.  

Hopefully I am able to embrace running alone again by Monday when I have a 2:45 run planned.  That's a long time to run alone when you don't want to be running alone!
