Did I shave my legs for this?

Actually yes, yes I did. And you should be grateful I did before I snapped this picture. I needed new shoes to train for the 3-day. When I walked 3 miles on Tuesday my old shoes gave me a big honking blister. So I hit up Rack Room today just to see if maybe they had any New Balance shoes for a reasonable price. And they did! Scored these babies for $35.99! I figure I will need two new pair a couple of months before the race, but these should get me through until then. Five miles on the calendar tomorrow morning!

Oh and I need donations! Desperately! So here's my thought. I easily know 500 people online via social networking, Facebook, knitting, Ravelry and all of that. If everyone could just donate $5 I would easily blow my $2300 goal right out of the water. And if you are a knitter, I have a bonus for you. If you donate $5 or more I will give you a free PicnicKnits pattern of your choice. Just leave your pattern choice in the comments after you donate!
