Hi All! I must first apologize for blog slacking lately. I need to catch up on EVERYONE'S posts. I blame it on work, it has been busy again. The Auditor's have arrived in full force. They are like cockroaches coming out of the woodwork and they seem to breed and multiply. You turn down one hallway and there they are, so you rush into another hallway to avoid them and low and behold, there are more of them! I promise to catch up soon.
I went shopping this weekend. REI heard me coming and opened their doors wide open. Here, I am trying to model my new Brooks Adrenaline GTS 10. My daughter took the picture and you can’t see my feet very well because it is too dark. You can however, see my dog getting ready to lick my sweaty legs (I had just gotten off my treadmill) and the sweat stains under my arm pits. I am wearing a wife beater, so the pit stains are fitting.
Here is a better picture of my new shoes! I love getting new tennis shoes…so white and clean. I should have done a better job of hiding those sweaty arm pits, however.
This is my new shower curtain. I just threw this in here; obviously not running related. I also went to Bed Bath and Beyond.
I picked up some new Yak Traks to run in the snow. We have hardly gotten any snow this year, so when the forecast this past weekend called for snow, I rushed out to purchase a pair. We only got a measly 3 inches, so they’ll probably stay in the box.
I also picked up the Prefontaine book, “The Story of America’s Greatest Running Legend”. Has anyone read this yet? The last running book that I read was Dean Karnazes book “50 Marathons in 50 Days” and it was wonderful; I hope this one is just as good.
I got my 14 miler in last weekend! It felt great (of course, I ran it pretty slow) and I got to run with Jill! She was doing her 20 miler and we ran a little over 10 miles together. It was fun and the miles went by very quickly. Plus she showed me all of the great bathroom stops on my favorite running route.
