An Invaluable Purchase


In participating with The B Bar’s monthly post linkup, I’m answering the question as to what was the most invaluable purchase I made last year. I’ll be honest, I didn’t have to think long and hard about this because they were starring at me as they laid right by the front door ready to be used again and again. I have some serious love for my neon green Nike Dual Fusion Run 3.

Ok ok… you’re probably thinking, “Seriously, she chose running shoes as the purchase she couldn’t live without?”  I most definitely could have answered my new home, but in my eyes, that has some serious value! To me, these are not just bright green sneakers. They represent a lifestyle and a mood. There’s no being in a bad mood when you decide to slip on the brightest pair of shoes in the whole neighborhood. In addition, since rescuing Dexie just over 2 years ago and having the privilege of working from home, we take 2-3 walks daily. I need a pair of shoes that can’t just hide in the corner & be overlooked. I need to be active for not only Dexie’s sake, but mine as well.

For a long while, I couldn’t work out in a traditional fashion of hitting up the gym or going for serious runs in the neighborhood. With the back injury I have, it’s taken quite a bit of time to be where I’m at today. So for me, these shoes represent my happy place and that’s invaluable.

  1. As someone finally getting back into the consistent workout routine after seven years of ups and downs, I completely understand! I really like the sneaks. Now I’m thinking I could use a new pair…:)

  2. Love your best purchase of 2014! They are some seriously cute sneakers. 🙂 In 2013, my boyfriend gave me a treadmill for my birthday. At first it didn’t seem like an exciting gift, but he also signed us up for a marathon to go along with it. Running a marathon was always a bucket list of mine and to have him not only support me in it by gifting me a treadmill, but sign up for it himself was one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. Your running shoes remind me of that experience!

  3. Oooooh, these are so pretty! I love them. I just started running again last week after a bad back and some really horrible balance issues that resulted in major surgery. Running is not necessarily something I love to do, but it does represent a freedom and an ability to survive! I think its fantastic that you chose your shoes for this question!

  4. I have the same shoes in a different color and TOTALLY understand why their your favorite purchase. Every time I wear mine I feel like I’m floating on a cloud. They could, quite possibly be the most comfortable pair of running shoes I’ve ever owned.

  5. Adore the color! I was sidelined before Christmas with an injury and I *cannot* wait to be cleared for action again. I think a new awesome pair of shoes may have to come along to celebrate too, don’t you?
