I've written a new song. I think you will enjoy it. It goes to some music you will already know. Let me tell you why I wrote it.

I went running this morning withe Jake. The weather was beautiful and sunny but it was hard, I got tired fast and didn't really love it at all. It has been hard to get myself out the door. I have had to go back 5 times to get different running shoes that don't make my foot hurt. UGGGG. It has been a long time and I've lost that something that makes you love to run. Running regularly will bring it back but in the mean time, during my bath afterward, these words came to me.

"You never grab your shoes anymore when the sun comes up.
And there's no tenderness like before when you lace them up.
You're trying hard not so show it (baby)
But baby,baby I know it.

You've lost that running feeling.
Whoa that running feeling.
You've lost that running feeling
now it's gone, gone, gone wooooooooh.

Now there's no welcome look in your eyes when it's time to go.
And now your pants are tight and you can't button them no more.
It makes me just feel like crying (baby).
Cause, baby, something beautifuls dying!


Baby, baby, I'll get my Ipod out for you.
If you would only love to run, like you used to do.
You had a love, a love, a love you don't find every day.
So don't, don't, don't let it slip away.

Baby (baby), Baby (baby)
I beg of you please. (I beg of you please)
You need to run
You need to run
So bring it on back
So bring it on back

Bring back, that running feeling
Whoa that running feeling
Bring back that running feeling
Cause it's gone, gone, gone.
And you can't go on noooooooooo."

Hey, did you know that if you purchase your shoes at Nordstrom they will take them back and give you a full refund...EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN WORN? Yup. Serious.

Save your receipt and if you don't like them they'll refund your moolah.

That is what "Striders" does too. They let me take back 5 pairs after I had had each for a week or more!

I did finally find the perfect ones. They happen to be the same ones as I bought before. Should have gotten them in the first place! I just didn't like the color! Stupid huh?
