Mama Needs a New Pair of Running Shoes

Pin It

I had to tell y'all about the new running shoes I bought the other day. Did you know DSW has a "lightweight running shoe" area? Well, I had never realized that before, but I was totally digging the shoes in that section. Saucony is my die-hard go-to running shoe brand. When I put on these lightweight beauts, their fit and light weight won me over instantly. Sold!
