When I stepped foot into my somewhat health-obsessed university in Virginia 5 years ago, I was genuinely shocked to learn that people ran as a hobby – even more bewildered that people actually enjoyed it! None of my family or close friends ever just…ran. Running belonged in high school gym class and my worst nightmares. I automatically assumed that people who ran were athletes. It’s boring. And exhausting. No one in their right mind would want to run when they can sit around and eat cookies.
It’s safe to say that my stance on running has change drastically since then. I ran my first official 6k this past weekend at the 2012 Nike Be Amazing Run! It took a while, but I’m so thrilled to have made it through that god-awful journey to get where I am now.

Nike just released the Women’s Premium Print Pack, a limited edition set of three shoe styles, all made using shredded magazines.
These shoes are wearable, with regular soles, strings and padding. The recycled magazine material is laminated. Currently only available in Europe, China, and “select emerging markets.” (Via Co.Design)
What a fantastic idea to reuse unwanted material! They look really awesome too, not at all cheap or anything. Total win Nike. Any guesses on how much these will be? My cousin says $400 :]
