Thank you to everyone who gave advice and sympathy yesterday on my blog post. Today I decided to vlog with a follow up, as well as chat about playing childhood sports and ask YOU a question at the end. (Cute puppy makes an appearance too. She’s very very sneaky!)
Hope that helps further explain my running shoe situation and what I plan to do/try next!
QOTD: Did you play sports as a child, and if so do you still participate in those or have you moved on to a different fitness activity?

Heather, it looks like the video is private…
thanks! I fixed it I think. You would think someone would have said something by now! Thanks for being a friend!
I was a cheerleader, dancer, and softball player as a kid! I had a blast doing those things. I now run and enjoy adult dance classes. I do Zumba, Irish dance, and sometime adult gymnastics! All similar activities to what I did as a kid.
Cute vlog- love hearing your voice 🙂 Again, so sorry you’re having these issues! Hope the Asics work!

Glad you have a plan for the shoe woes! Hope the Asics work! I skated on the speed team as a kid. I also did some ballet and tennis. I always wanted to be a runner but would always start out too fast, it would be too hard, and I would quit. About 2.5 years ago after having children and being miserable because I was out of shape, I decided to give running another go. I fell in love with it!
I started playing soccer in third grade and played that through high school. When my family moved to Boston, I fell in love with lacrosse and started playing that in eighth grade and through my junior year of college. I played soccer in an adult league for three seasons after moving here, but stopped so I could train for my first half. I was having hip flexor issues and didn’t want muscle problems during my training and thought both would be too much. I do want to pick it up again but the team doesn’t seem to be together anymore.

I rode horses growing, did dance tap, jazz, gymnasts for 11 yrs, did swimming and track through junior high, and dabbled in cheerleading in high school. With that being said I didn’t consider myself athletic and couldn’t run to the end of the corner to save my life. Seriously. So happy to now have an actual athletic life.
PS I watched your whole vid and caught the cute cuteness. I absolutely adore your pups and just want to eat them up. They should be featured on your blog more 😉
As a child what didn’t we do.. Right 😉 I played basketball and volleyball. (nowhere near college level lol) Had fun. Picked up running because it is something I can do but it is something I needed to do. There was so much stress in my life that I needed a good outlet. I am not fast but I run and I like it. CUTE DOGGIE !!!!

Your pup looks like my Buddy! So cute!
Glad you’re going to try going back to Asics. My fave :-).
I was very competitive when I was young, but I didn’t play any sports outside of PE classes in school. When I was in school, girls weren’t encouraged to play sports like they are today. I didn’t start running until I was in my late 30s.
I played softball all through elementary and middle school but stopped after 8th grade I think. Now I’m back on an adult league at the age of 24! It’s so much fun, and I had totally forgotten how much I missed it after not playing for near a decade! Haha! Spa love and I really hope u can get that perfect pair of sneaks!

Hope you have better luck with the Asics!
