Do you like to do it yourself?

Quick, name that movie! 40 Year Old Virgin of course. :) So, upon further research, joining a health club for their indoor running facilities is now out of the question. I learned through more research that you have to join for a whole year, and generally can't just join for, oh 3 months or so. Boo to that! And silly me for waiting until the last minute to discover it. Given this unfortunate news, coupled with the fact that tomorrow, I have to run 3 miles, outdoors, through our neighborhood of un-shoveled sidewalks, I frantically started researching on the internet for "strap on" stabilizers and such so that I wouldn't die on my hilly running route tomorrow. The reviews were mixed, the products were many. And honestly the ones I was more interested in, it looked like I was going to have to order online. I don't have time to wait for them to get here, and then, sweet salvation. A "do it yourself" option, wait for it.... Screw shoes!

Sheet metal screws are cheap, we already have a power drill, and I do have a pair of older running shoes to experiment with. Tomorrow after a quick jaunt to the ol' hardware store, it's on. I'll post some pics with my results. I'm a little nervous to be drilling into my shoes, but since it's my old pair I feel a little bit of comfort.

And check that out, a never seen before, two posts in one day phenomenon! Woot!
