I am constantly on the go.
Walking, hopping, skipping, jumping, but for the most part running (sometimes out of patience) and usually after a fast and feisty two year old or precocious six year old.
Motherhood certainly has me on my feet often and that includes my other day-to-day activities like running to the store to pick up a few items, heading to the spa to get a quick manicure in or facial (if I’m lucky!) or even just hitting my local Chapters for a tea and browsing.
I will admit this to you all: I am usually not the runners type of gal.
I believe Victoria Beckham said it best: “I can’t concentrate in flat shoes.”
Well, unless they’re super cute ballet flats, to which I have grown accustom to over the past few years with children.
Let’s not get it mistaken — I still pride myself in the ability to walk miles with a stroller in heels. Perhaps not stiletto’s, but still quite impressive right?
Yes, my friends. I love my heels and I just cannot part with them. They have become part of my lifestyle.
And the thought of being in runners often did make me cringe at one point. I thought they were best left at the gym where they should be.
That was until I was introduced to New Balance’s Minimus Collection.
Vibrant, girly (they have different colours available), light-weight yet still tough enough for the road and very comfortable! I honestly feel like I’m bare-foot at times.
These shoes (despite the awkward toe design) fit like a glove and true to my shoe size.
I have been doing a lot of running and with older brands, I found some discomfort in my feet afterwards.
These shoes offer great traction and support — I’ve never had better arch support until I started wearing my New Balance shoes!

What a motivation to keep running towards my fitness and health goals than with a good pair of shoes?
Am I right, stylish ladies and gents?
I am still working on boosting my fitness regime but I am more motivated than ever.
A step at a time, right?
“Believe that you can run farther or faster. Believe that you’re young enough, old enough, strong enough, and so on to accomplish everything you want to do. Don’t let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself.”
