For those of you that were concerned (and I know you all were on pins and needles), I took my sad and broken Salomon shoes (see Sunday's racing post) to REI today and they provided me with a spankin' brand new pair! AND!!! They are RED!! I am very happy about this...in fact, I am doing a little happy dance as I type! I love these shoes sooo much. I like to hike, run, race, snowshoe, bike (pre-clipless peddle era) and run errands in them. They are my go to shoe...and if Salomon would like to sponsor this stay at home mama, they wouldn't be sorry!
