I broke down. I bought the red and navy and gray and white Adidas Supernovas I posted about yesterday from Zappos. I don’t really have the money for another pair of running shoes right now, but hopefully the Supernovas will be ok on my feet and they can be used as a back-up pair of running shoes. Though I think because they are just so darned beautiful they may never be used outside — they may become winter treadmill shoes (assuming I can find/afford a gym membership for the winter). I’m not sure I could take the chance that mud or rain or something would sully their beauty!
The wildlife watching was really good on today’s run! Quality over quantity. Just as I was starting out, I saw a mother deer and her new fawn venturing to the edge of the river. The fawn must have been just born because it had spindly legs and spots. The spots fade, I believe, at around three months old, so this was definitely a young baby.
Then, coming around the bend in the river, I saw a great blue heron. He was stalking in the river, obviously looking for breakfast. Again, I got a very good look at him. I like herons. They look so handsome, distingushed, and stately.
