On another note, I was thrilled to hear that the FTC is fining Reebok over their toning shoes and the claims they made. Read more about it here: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44702829. I've always thought it was a bit of a farce and over hyped. I know Kim Kardashian advertises a different brand but she is who comes to mind when I think about these toning sneakers. There is no way she got her behind to look like that wearing toning sneakers to workout. She gets her shape by discipline, working out with a trainer and eating right! These shoes, to me, were a whole way to show to the rest of the world that we want to be lazy about our exercise. I hope this just leads to more fines with the other companies out there and the product finally getting pulled from the shelves. They are just not good for your feet.
I will now disassemble my soapbox and return to the regular scheduled blogging.
I've updated my about me section and my past race information. I find it interesting how much I've improved over the last 2 years since I've begun walking. I need to start planning my 2012 race/training schedule. Any suggestions?
####Is there any product out there whose ads just make you angry? Have you ever said to someone "I didn't think you had the weight to lose" but really thought the opposite?
