That being said you know that I have a lot to say today.
Let's see if I can remember everything.
For starter I went for a hot morning run on Wednesday with my usual running buddy, my late night workout buddy and a friend...I haven't given her a name yet. We did a 6am run, way to early, and it was already nearly 80 degrees, way to hot. It was a pretty good run. My late night workout buddy has decided and registered for her very first Half Marathon. I am so proud. She swore she would never do one and lookie now. So I am thinking she will be a pretty regular staple in our morning runs. She talked about this run that she is doing that I think I have been convinced. I thought about it all day long, its a Women's Half Marathon. I like the concept of all women and the fact that I have finally found one that I can have the time to actually train for...I usually decide 3 weeks before that I am going to run one and then I am not as ready as I would like to be.
The longer the day went on while I was trying to decide on the run the more I liked the longer training period. Then I thought, if all goes well with training this could be the race that I set a huge time PR. I really want to beat my first Half Marathon time by 1 hour. Its a goal that I am still having trouble getting my mind around. It would put me running a 2:15 half. Oh that is way faster than I am running now and faster than I ever really thought about running. But how cool would it be to beat my time by an hour!!!!!! So I'm still bouncing that idea around.
Then on Thursday I worked and ran around all day. Then, last night I went to Fleet Feet and we graduated from our NoBo program. My whole team were finishers and I was very happy that we didn't have a bunch that quit. We got a good discount at the store for participating in the program and I have been waiting for 2 weeks for this night so I could get some new running shorts. I have been saying for weeks that I was going to buy every pair they had in my size.
Seriously this was the first item on my list!!!!
I held true to my promise. I got 3, oh yes, 3 pairs of shorts. That make 4 pair total, which mean I can wear 2 pair every day and still only have to wash every other day. I don't know what I will do with myself. I had been wearing my one pair in the morning, drying them and wearing them again in the evening. 4 PAIR!!!!! I got one pair that was a little different than the norm because they only had 2 of the ones I love but I wore the new ones this morning and they are gonna work just fine too. Thanks Moving Comfort!
We also got some killer deals last night. That always makes shopping more fun. I was beginning to feel a little guilty about spending money on workout clothes when my regular wardrobe is struggling so badly. I went to the Goodwill and got 2 pair of khaki shorts and then my sister, Sister 1 and my friend both gave me tons of clothes to go through and try. Now I have about 20 pairs of shorts but I don't know if any of them will be as comfortable as my Goodwill shorts. Now, shirts!
We finally got done with out shopping extravaganza and got home late. I may have gotten 5 hours of sleep when it was time to go run this morning. I felt like I was running in 6 inches of sand. My legs were so heavy and I was sooooo tired. We went so early that I was able to go home and get a little nap before my day today. I have a super busy next few days. I had to work today, then work at the gym then tonight is an all nighter at Relay for Life, then I have to be back at the gym at the crack of freakin dawn to work again and I am too old to be pulling all nighters anymore.
And one final thing....
My sister, Sister #2, and I bought my niece the cutest little birthday present ever and I just have to share. She got some Nike Tempo shorts and a Jog bra belly shirt. How cute is this?!?!
Ill try to get on here again before the weekend is over but I am not making any promises for tomorrow, the goal tomorrow is to find time to sleep.
