These boots are made for walking

I’m racking up the miles on my tennies*: 2.8 miles on Saturday, 2.5 miles on Sunday, and 2.0 miles today (Monday). I have some workout clothes under my desk so I can take advantage of the unseasonably warm February weather we’ve been enjoying thus far, and I bought rain pants & a jacket for when the clouds come back to Seattle.

* What do you call your workout shoes? I still call mine tennis shoes (tennies for short), though I’ve never played tennis and I’m pretty sure mine would not be good court shoes. I guess technically I have running shoes (that’s what the sign said in the store where I bought them), but since I don’t really run it seems like I’m letting them down to call them that. Sneakers? Athletic shoes? Joggers? Cross trainers? Mostly I walk, with small bits of jogging thrown in for good measure if my knees are cooperating. Whatever they are called, I think mine are about due to be demoted to lawn-mowing shoes and I’ll need to go buy a new pair – ones that will keep out the rain.

Don't get used to the blog theme; I change it as often as I do my hair color. Writing, however, has been a favorite hobby for as long as I can remember. Ever since I learned to read, I have been reciprocating by writing for others. I believe in balance. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.

    I call mine “lonely” :) Actually I’ve been riding a bike a fair amount in the lonely shoes so….Big 5 is having a huge sale on walking shoes right now. Just bought Hil a pair.
