wordless wednesday: what disaster looks like

What I look like when I'm stroller-checking someone:
About 5 seconds before power-puking in a porta-potty.
(Gait notes: slight angle of the right leg indicating tight adductors, slight outwards extension of the right foot indicating tight hip flexor, but no sign of the magical collapsing hip.  Not bad for a hangover.)


Also, this happened.  Because I need to introduce more changes that have the potential to break me in half.
I haven't purchased them...yet.

  2. Snort - I love the stroller check. Fabulous.

    How'd the Newton's feel? I've heard awesome things about them.. Intriguing.

  3. I'll look forward to hearing what you think about the Newtons ... they seem like a good happy medium between a regular running shoe and going wholesale barefoot.

  5. I can't believe you RACED with a hangover. Mad respect. I'd have rolled over and stayed in bed.

  7. I've been running in Newtons for 3 years and LOVE them. Every other running shoe feels weird to me now (heavy, clunky). Good luck in your search for new kicks!

  11. Yay for good hungover running form! I'm also tempted by Newtons but not sure I'm ready to make that kind of commitment.

  13. Love the Newtons for shorter distances, light and fast. Not enough cushion to suit me for anything more than a half. Good luck, and nice job making it to the porta pottie in time!

  15. What kind of shoes are those? I want to know......I can't tell.....ahhh!!!!!

    By the way I just got new shoes myself. Brooks T7 Racers. Wore them today for the first time and loved them.

    Power Puking......that's good stuff right there.

  16. I'm all about minimalist. I liked newtons but was a little iffy on how massive the bottoms looked. I'm currently very very happy in a pair of innov-8s
