3 New Things

23 Mar

I looooove shopping for running gear so here are a few new things that I’ve added to my collection recently!

My new racing flats!! Nike Mayfly

 

Its cold around here.... so I bought arm warmers finally!

Lightweight Nike Gloves

 

So far I’ve used the arm warmers and gloves, and I love them both!! I will be trying out my new shoes Saturday morning at a local 5k (CIDA).
