Shoes for Sale!

So yesterday there was some good news, some bad news, some wine, and then the Yankees won game 2 of the ALDS!  Happy Friday!

 

My lover Andy Pettitte

Look at that intense stare.  I love him, especially when he opens his mouth to talk and that thick Texas accent comes out.  Swooooon.  Anyway, despite just coming back from injury, Andy pitched 7 strong innings leading the Yankees to a win.

 

I hightailed it out of work at 3:30 on the dot, and got home to change for my workout.  That was when I received the phone call with the good news :).  It really lifted my spirits after yesterday, and I felt great for my 6 mile tempo run.

  • 1 mile warm-up at 10 min/mile
  • 4 miles at 9:05 min/mile
  • 1 mile cool-down at 10 min/mile

I really enjoy tempo runs, because even though this one was technically 6 miles in my head I only considered it 4.  I saw the email with the bad news after my run, but I’m not too worried about it.  I picked up a bottle of red to have for the game, and went home to cheer on my boys.

Alright, so now for some fun stuff.  Shoes!!! Two days before I started my senior year of college, on a shopping spree at Bloomies I picked up these adorable Coach shoes.

Now somewhere in my shopping haze, I became convinced that my size 9 foot would fit into a size 8 shoe without serious damage.  I was wrong.  I wear these shoes, nearly lose a pinky toe forget about them and the pain for a good year and then try to wear them again.  It’s a vicious cycle that I have to stop repeating.  So my impulse shopping purchase, is now someones gain because I have decided to sell these shoes.  I’m not kidding when I say that in four years they have probably been worn five times.  They’re in fantastic shape, and I wish my foot actually was a size 8.

While they were too small for me, I think the style does run a little big, and would be perfect for someone who wears an 8.5.  Both my mom and sister wear a 7.5 and they were too big on them.  I paid a little over $200 for them, and would like to sell them for about $100.  If anyone is interested email me!  The heel isn’t too high, less than 3 inches, and for someone they are the right size for they’d be super comfortable.  I wanted to offer them up to you ladies first before I put them for sale on e-bay or something, so let me know if you want em!

  1. Nice work on the run! I wish I had just a little more energy after work or more time in the morning to do another extra mile or two. It seems I’ve been content with just four miles as of late. I really shouldn’t complain, but you know how it is when you’ve got a race in the distance and just want to do more…. :p

    • I would love to do just four miles, but once I see a number on my training plan I kind of get obsessed with it like my whole race depends on that one run. Probably not the best attitude, haha.

  2. So cute… but I’m not that size 😦

    Great 6 mile run!

  3. Super cute shoes!!! I can’t wear a size 8 either. 😦

    See you in a couple hours!! 🙂

  4. Nice run! You’re totally going to leave us hanging on the good news, aren’t you? Because I’m guessing the good news isn’t that you bought shoes in an aspirational size. Although they are pretty cute. I would give ’em a shot, except, like, my size-6 feet would make the look less glam and more kid-playing-dress-up. Cute, but really, not cute at all.

  5. I have teeny feet, but they’re super cute!

  6. Super cute…too bad I wear as size 6. UGH!

  7. That’s my shoe size! And they are SUPER cute! Too bad i’m broke…
    I’m sorry about your bad news buuuut the good news is AWESOME! And what a great run!

  8. haha I always buy shoes that are too small for me and convince myself they will fit. They never do, and I usually wind up giving them to my Grandma. I dont know if that says more about me or her . . .

  9. I’m TEENY I wear a size five! I buy kids shoes sometimes to save money! I buy nice shoes but never wear them! I really live in my sneakers (for running, weigh lifting), flip flops, and uggs (in the winter)
