I’m running less this week and it’s been making me crazy. Truth be said I can be melodramatic and emotional and a run a day keeps me sane and bearable to others and myself. I also over-stress myself by over-thinking and running is one of the few moments that my brain stays quiet and just tries to focus on not tripping. None the less as things are hectic, I am still a pretty lucky girl. It might have taken me a few days to remember that but overall things are good and here’s just a few things that have made me smile the past few weeks.
Yup, less than 10 days away! I know I’m running less but I guess I should be tapering anyways.
New shoes! Mizuno Ronin 4, my new racer flats and the old Gold Waverider 15s because even though they weight like half a pound more than the Waverider 16s I just can’t stop loving the color! Also, I run a lot, therefore, I go through shoes a lot and buying older model of a shoe helps me save some $$$ for other shiny things like compression socks instead!
5 Mile repeats at 6AM in the morning with my eyelids barely open!
I got to run with and meet Bart Yasso!! Yes, Yasso of the Yasso 800s! Marathon Sports, Mizuno & Runner’s World hosted a fun run and a promo for their new shoes: Waverider 16 and Evo Levitas. Unfortunately they were out of my size of the waveriders so instead I tested the Evos. I ran fine on it, but I have a very narrow foot and found the toe box to be a little clown shoes-esque for me. It was driving me nuts and I don’t think I’ll ever run in those again. I prefer my Ronin for a more minimalism shoe. Bart was rocking the Evos though! After the run, we each got a FREE copy of My Life on the Run, Bart’s book that we got to autographed. Can’t wait to read it page to page once I have more time.
SUSHI SUSHI SUSHI!!
Tell me things that made you happy this week!
