By some odd reversal of fortune, I was able to snag a reservation for a limited edition pair of Nike Women’s Marathon shoes in Tiffany blue.
I’m not usually this lucky. But I’m heading into San Francisco on a Thursday this year to avoid Friday/Saturday lines at the expo. And I knew I’d be there during the day, so I decided to try. What the hell, right?
I was surprised the system not only worked, but worked fast. I had an initial reservation. Then a confirmation within three minutes.
I’ve never had a pair of shoes that pretty before.
There’s a raging debate on the Nike Women’s Marathon Facebook page going on about these shoes now. I kind of feel bad for the folks who control the Nike page, they are constantly subjected to people criticizing every decision. Plus, the women kind of attack each other. It’s a little ridiculous.
I’m just excited that I’m able to get a pair of these amazing shoes. I’m fortunate.
In reality, I’m fortunate to even get into this race two year’s in a row. The Tiffany necklace? An added bonus. The shoes? An even bigger bonus. I’m giddy with anticipation. (And those who know me know I don’t get giddy too often.) Even better, I may be more excited about the Nike Women’s Half Marathon than my “A” race this weekend in San Jose.
(By the way, I’m not selling these babies, so don’t ask. I only say that because someone has already asked me. I’m going to wear them with a great amount of excitement and pride.)
