I got to run here twice this week! Score!
Days like this, I have a hard time imagining having children because I love and appreciate my freedom so much. I have crazy respect for all of the mamas out there. You're so selfless.
And then... I woke up this morning feeling sick as a dog. How does that happen? I felt the sore throat coming on yesterday and the sniffly nose, but I figured it was nothing. Today, I can hardly swallow and I can only breathe out of one nostril.
I had grand plans to run 18 miles and to visit friends in L.A., all of which have been cancelled. I still plan on running the 18 miles tomorrow but for today, the only thing on the agenda is REST. And you all know how much I
I'm keeping a smile on my face and thinking positively. Kristen just got over a bout of strep throat that forced her to take almost a week off of training. If she can handle it, so can I. Besides, we're kind of like twins so it's not surprising that I got sick after she did.
I received a bunch of new stuff from Brooks this week and can't wait to try it all out. I already wore my new shorts and tank and walked around in my Brooks Pure Flows.
I have a new favorite pair of shorts! These are amazing! The waist band isn't as shiny as it looks in the picture. These are so comfortable and super cute. The material is incredibly light and smooth.
Check it out! There is even a little side pocket for your iPod or phone, or in my case, keys.
I'm in love!
P.S. don't be jealous of my awesome kitchen flooring.
I also added a new pair of Pure shoes to my collection -- the pink Pure Flows!
Such a happy family. Those blue Cadences are on their last leg but they are so nicely worn in, I am struggling to say good-bye. Attachment issues?
If you haven't tried shoes from the Pure Project, you might wan to consider it. I've never loved a pair of shoes more. I have extremely high arches, I land on my midfoot, and I am injury-prone. Since switching to the Pure shoes with a 4mm drop, I have felt a major decrease in Plantar Fascia pain. If you have similar issues, I'd recommend the Pure Cadence or Pure Flows. I am definitely not an expert, I'm only speaking from personal experience.
Do you have a favorite pair of running shoes?
What does your perfect day look like?
