When it comes to running shoes I tend to lean on the “experts” of running stores for guidance. However it usually is a hit or miss on what is best for me and my feet. I’ve always been directed toward a stability shoe. Last week I saw a new chiropractor and had some A.R.T (active release technique) again. It has been almost a year since my last A.R.T session and knew it was about time. During this visit we discussed running shoes and she absolutely did not want me in the Asics 2160 that I have admitted to not being a big fan. I’ve been switching between those and my trusted Asics 3020, which I do like (not as much as I liked the 3010’s) but they have carried me through many miles. She suggested that I go for a neutral shoe, one that would allow my stuck non moving ankles to be less constricted as in a more controlling shoe.
So that lead me to these…..
I took these Asics Reprisal’s on a little test drive this morning with a short 4 miler. I find them extremely light and they seem to allow my foot to move more naturally. There is not a lot of cushion and the sole is very thin which gives me the “road feel” that I love. I am not sure how they will preform on a long run, but for now I am giving them an A+.
When it comes to ice cream I freely admit that I do not have a lot of self control so when I discovered these cute little single serving treats I was thrilled. I find having a large carton in the freezer leads to more temptation than I can handle. If I have a portion controlled size sitting there I am ok with being satisfied when it is finished. And if you use the very tiny spoon provided under the lid, this frozen treat lasts a little longer too.
When it comes to summer one of my favorite smells is a vine ripened tomato. Strange? Maybe. But oh so tasty. I came across this recipe Basil Scalloped Tomatoes & Croutons back at Easter and it was such a big hit that I kept the recipe around. I got a craving for it the other day after purchasing a few beautiful tomatoes at the store that smelled like they had just been picked off the vine.
When it comes to the kitchen I am brave enough to try new things. Tonight was one of those rare moments where I put on my chef’s hat deciding it was about time I made my own pizza crust.
I know what you are thinking. What in the world is this mess??? The goal was to make a calzone. But alas all I got was a big mess. The crust was crumbly and I overstuffed it so I am not sure what I got could really be classified a calzone since it would not close. Despite the way it looks….and let’s be honest friends it looks ridiculous….it was tasty.
When it comes to life I say live it. Live it completely. Live it without regret. Live it with passion. Live it in the truth.running in faith, Bekah
