A slow, but good start

My Year of Running Fun started off a bit like my grandpa's old Lister engine on the farm back when we were kids: With a huff and a puff and... well, not much else.  But, when the year's running finally did commence (and the coughing finally stopped, hooray!), it did so in style: With a parkrun, yay!

Love those results mails!

Annnnnd, to make the start of this Year of Running Fun even more fun, I nabbed these at a local sale...

The Nimbus 16s!  I know, I know.  I said that I was going to go with the New Balance 1080v5s.  But a niggly knee convinced me that I need new running shoes right now (my newest pair is already more than a year old), and the 1080v5s are still nowhere to be seen in our dearest home town.  Plus the Nimbuses were on sale.  And they're purple.  Can we go running now??

Colour: Purple/Lightning/Lime.  Sounds very promising to me.
A parkrun and new running shoes...  I'm having a ball already!

Happy weekend, everyone!


  1. Oooh I LOVE your new shoes!!! And they're PURPLE!! I can't believe believe you went over a year without new shoes! Take care of those precious feet! :) Have a great weekend, Karien!

    1. Purple shoes to match the purple Garmin - wheeeeeeee! :)

      Thanks so much, Hailey, hope you have a lovely weekend too!

  2. Purple shoes! Awesomesauce :) Great start to the year.

    1. NOTHING like a new pair of [purple :) ] running shoes to fan the running flame :) !

  3. Congrats on the great race! Brava.
    Beautiful shoes, even if now I wear Brooks the Asics are my favorite ones.

    1. Thanks so much, Stefano!

      I've never run with Brooks, but have heard some really good things about it. I heel strike quite badly (boo!), so the support that Asics (Nimbus) gives is perfect for me :) .


I love hearing from you!
