Pessimist or Realist…

We’ve had some record high temperatures here these last few days, but here in Calgary we all know what is coming.  I don’t want to be the first one to mention the four letter word…S…N…O…W…  (Seriously though, it has been 30+C these last few days, although that is going to change soon.)

So I’ve been prepping by picking up a new pair of winter boots, but I’m not sure which pair to keep.  I’m leaning towards the one on the left since I feel like I’m missing some skinny jeans or leggings, a big puffy coat and a trip to Vail with some hot celebrity to go with the furry boots.  Any thoughts?DSCN1514

Workouts have been happening this week too, just nothing too much to write about.  A 45 minute run with strides yesterday.  A swim that I had to cut short due to time constraints this morning.  Tomorrow?  A short taper run, then the Melissa’s 10K on Saturday!  Have a great weekend all!

That looks like a great race~ and I pick the boots on the left

I just started reading your blog - I followed a link to your blog about the sport bra review for moving comfort that you did. I love the boots! I would probably go for the ones on the left too but the ones with the fur are cute!

ugh, it's that time of year again eh? both are cute!! Good luck at Melissa's this weekend! :)

Marlene said...

Oh, I like the ones with the far! Must be strange to be shopping for boots when it's 30C!

Have a great weekend and good luck at the 10K.

I forwarded my request for light snow only this year to the proper authorities. We'll see how it goes :-)

Definitely go for the ones on the left. The furry ones are a little more "high maintenance" than they are "tough chick training for an Ironman"

Ali said...

I like both! Can't decide.

hey there! :) Ok, looks like I am checking in today on a VERY hot topic - which boot to wear. HAHA....the ones on the left - I like the simplier ones (darker browns). Have fun! Good luck @ the 10k!

Ok, normally I'm all about boots like those on the left. BUT for some reason I am seriously digging the ones on the right!!!

Bonus: My new pedals are going to be $100 cheaper than I expected. Sables are coming home :) Thanks for the input!

adorable boots!! I'm going to be so confused in miami when I don't have to buy a single thing for winter

joyRuN said...

Wow - snow already?!

I like the boots on the left :)

Julie said...

HOLD THE PRESSES!! Did you say, What boots to keep? Does this mean you are going to get rid of your other boots???? Because I LURVE the boots on the right -- nobody else seems to, but WOWZER I think they are smoking!!

If you are getting rid of them -- maybe we could do an exchange/moolah swap? What size of shoe do you wear?

Am I terrible for asking this? LOL!!

Seriously -- I like both pairs of boots -- both are two totally different looks, so I guess, your pick should be the one that suits your style the most. :) :)

I love both pairs, but I would likely go with the Hollywood high maintenance pair... :)

teacherwoman said...

I love 'em both. EVen the fury ones, but you might be right. I don't think I could pull those off... go with the ones on the left!

lindsay said...

hope the 10k went well!!! i love both pairs of boots, but i think i'd be a little too self-conscious in the furry ones myself.

Amber Dawn said...

I'd keep both. It is a loooong winter up here and you deserve fabulous boots. I recently splurged on 2 pair myself :)
