Yaktrax

It has been a full MONTH since I have ran! I just really dread the darkness and the cold and especially the snow and ice, but I can't exactly quit running until March, right? I can feel my thighs jiggling as I type.

That is a problem. Here, my friends, is my hopeful ohmygoshthisbettermotivateme solution.
















The website claims that you can run normally and you don't slip. Super duper.

They are $29.95 on the website - not a bad price considering what they enable you to do. However, my frugal self just couldn't click that button without first doing some deal searching. And deals, did I find! =) Using my new favorite shopping search engine and the always-a-favorite Ebay, I managed to score a set of brand new Yaktrax for $23.54, including shipping. And if that deal wasn't good enough, I will be getting $6.26 of that back, thanks to the Microsoft Live Search.

Final cost = $17.28

Not too shabby! Now if only I can peel my lazy butt off the sofa when they get here...
