So after a slightly difficult run this morning (I did a ‘adventure run’ sponsored by the local running store last night adding about 3 miles to my usual routine = tired legs) I pulled of my shoes and realized I have quite the collection.
Why, yes, I AM training for a marathon. Oh and the marathon is ONE MONTH AWAY. I am still loving the training. Granted every morning my alarm goes off at 5:15 my first thought is ‘Emily, yo craycray.” Luckily my second thought is get out of bed and get going!! And I do. Every. Single. Day.
So my happiness today is my running shoes. I got a new pair to break in for the marathon. I have a OCD rotation schedule of shoes. New ones get broken in and worn on runs, second newest ones still get worn on runs (sloppy weather), third newest ones get worn on walks; oldest ones are for hikes. Oh yea and the ones in my locker at the gym. And sometimes I wear all five pairs in a 24 hour period. I love running. Some times my bank account does not. True fact. Not to mention I spend a lot on food. And race entries. Oh and things normal people don’t buy like Gu and compression socks. Oh well. Other people spend a lot of money on other things. I just get my hair cut once a year so my running habit is financially balanced. Time to get my feet in my third oldest pair of running shoes and stretch these legs out after sitting in front of a computer all day!
Here’s to FRIDAY and the marathon countdown!
I can’t believe it’s labor day. My grad classes don’t start for another month so I guess it’s not really the end of summer for me.
