I’m sure most of you know that October is National Breast Cancer awareness month. Pink, pink, pink everywhere. Some of us though, deal with this devastating disease every single day. Some are actively fighting their battle with cancer, some are survivors, and some of us are the mammographers that do your mammograms every year.
I have been involved with mammography since 1989. My career as a radiologic technologist has been extremely rewarding in many ways. I have made many dear friends through the years, and have celebrated with those that have conquered the disease and mourned the passing of those less fortunate. I could go on and on about this, but that’s not why I am here!
As a runner, I know how important it is to have time to rest between workouts and races. Since I have been working with Skechers, I have been blessed to have the perfect running and racing shoes. They feel great, they fit great, and the LOOK great too! I have to say though, working at the hospital has taken it’s toll on my legs through the years. Fortunately I have found the most amazing company, that has the most amazing shoes for walking and relaxing!
Let me introduce you to the
Now these shoes aren’t the every day walking shoe. The soles are amazingly light, and they do not slip. I wear mine year round in Maine and have no issues in them. Barefoot is fantastic in the GO Walk lineup. No socks needed!! I will include the specs below, but I can’t say enough about how comfortable these shoes are. I wear them to work almost every day. I have a grey slip on pair, and a black slip on pair. Because I also do IT work, I have to have something comfortable but yet somewhat business casual looking also. The first time I put my Go Walk 2’s they felt like slippers and I didn’t want to take them off. I have never in my life had shoes as comfortable as the GW2’s!!
One thing that really touched me, was that they are donating funds to the American Cancer Society. All cancer patients can benefit from the research that is being done every day. I just ordered my pair!
For those of you that like to read the Tech-Specs….
