    I know exactly what you mean. Shiny, new running shoes are the best! And Asics are so pretty–though I’m afraid to leave my good, trusty Brooks.

    Thanks for the fish packet idea. That sounds awesome!

    WOW! Congratulations with putting together such a successful bake sale!!

    Here’s an idea for something different – you could sell blogger cookbooks next! Have all of your blog friends submit a few of their best/favorite recipes (they could even have their readers vote on which recipes they’d like the most) and you could easily put it together and sell it. Not sure about other people, but it would be fun to have all of the best recipes in print and all together (complete with pictures!?)

    I’m a 1/2 size bigger in Asics shoes. I’m not sure why but they are the best running shoes I have found yet.

    i used to pick shoes based on colors…then it f’d up my feet. no fun.

    and great total! i totally think you should do the bake sale again! i bet everyone would love it!

    boo about the sandwich at ethos…we totally should have done what we did at press 101 and ask for no butter/margarine on our sammies…was sooo good that way!

    Congrats with the bake sale! Though I didn’t participate this time, I would be willing to if you do it again. Your new shoes do look great, purple is my favorite 🙂 I might have to go buy some teddy grahams now, I haven’t had them in a while.

    I really LOVE those shoes! I can’t wait to wear out my Nike Shox and get fitted with some REAL running shoes that work with my feet!

    I’m so glad the bake sale was such a success! You doubled you donations…incredible! Are you still doing t-shirts?

    wearing out the outside of your heels is normal- most people (especially women) heel strike on the outside of the heel.
    being the shoe geek i am, i totally recognized the landreth before the picture of the name! what a talent!
    hope you like the new shoes, make sure you let us know how they go!
    and CONGRATS for the blogging bake sale, i’m so glad to hear it went so well for you 🙂

    Great work organizing the bake sale. It was a lot of fun, well I haven’t baked yet, but I am sure that part will be fun too. Of course I will bake something again in March if you’d like.

    What’s up with all the grease at the vegan restaurant. Almost sounds like chipotle would have been better.

    Those are some well-worn shoes!

    Wow! That is so awesome!! Another bake sale sounds good!
    I know what you mean about wanting cute shoes, but good ones as well. I do a lot of aerobics so I need cross-trainers but the majority of them are so plain and old-lady looking. I know comfort is the most important- but can’t a girl look cute when she’s working out too? hehe

    yes another bake sale!!!
    do the bakers get compensated for baking or are they just doing it out of their own good will??

    I’d totally be down for a bake sale if you get one together again. I was so bummed that I didn’t bid on anything. 🙁

    Oh I would so be into another bake sale. I was all stoked because I thought I had won my item, but I realized I was checking the wrong post for the last updates and at the last minute I was out-bid! Won’t happen again, I tell ya….

    I love new running shoes!!! I don’t care what the guy says, color is important. I run faster when I’m cute 😉

    definitely agree with going up a 1/2 size in running shoes. i am always a 6 (floor model, usually!) in shoes but 6.5 for the running kind!

    another bake sale sounds wonderful. maybe with a theme, like breakfast foods or energy snacks?

    i loved the baked sale, yay!

    great shoes.

    whenever kristien goes with me to buy new shoes, he’ll say stuff like ‘those shoes are ugly’ and i’m like ‘oh clearly you arent a runner’

    Meghann, as a recent college graduate, soon to be dietitian, and Team in Training participant, I have been enjoying reading your blog. Congratulations on your bake sale – the amount you raised is amazing! I know with the economy it has been hard to fundraise this season, a lot of my teammates and I are struggling to find creative ideas. Great job!

    The sneakers look great! Similar to my new ones — but I thought you said you didn’t like gel cushions? Aren’t the Asics gel?

    Also, the catfish looks so good and EASY to make – I never know how to cook fish, I need to try this.

    Congrats on the bake sale — sadly, I was so close to winning something and ended up losing! Next time!

  48. Amanda
    February 11, 2009

    I would be more than happy to bake again!!

    I’m with you on the running shoes – fit is the key element, but fashion is also important.

    Congrats on such a successful bake sale! I think you should totally do it again by seeing how much moolah you raised!!

    I love your shoes….very pretty 🙂

    I LOVE Saucony running shoes. I don’t want to buy any other brand because they work so well for me! Does anyone else wear Saucony?

    Wow, I can’t believe how much people are willing to donate! I think it’s amazing! I’m really proud of you all!

    I found the Team in Training shoe clinics to be very helpful as well… the March issue of Runner’s World also has a very detailed spread on the best running shoes on the market for each type of foot (high arches, low arches, overpronators etc.)

    Oh.. one last thing.. PLEASE DO NOT TOSS YOUR RUNNING SHOES IN THE TRASH!!! They’ll end up in landfills for thousands of years….

    You can drop them off at various running stores or a Nike store and they will recycle them… this link might be helpful when looking for a place to donate your kicks!

    I love Asics! I posted a message in your most recent post but I thought it might get lost amongst all the bra entries. 🙂 Here’s an article about the name of your sneakers (Landreth). They are named after a guy from my town who was an awesome runner and my teammate’s older brother.

    I have the Asics Landreth and they are a good supportive shoe. Hope you have a great time running in them!

    Congrats on the bake sale success! I’m also jealous of your new shoes! I’m in need of actual running shoes (I’m using cross trainers that don’t fit properly) and those are adorable!

    Nice post.!! Well, I too have a pair of similar designed Asics shoes.
