I may have a slight addiction

An addiction to running gear. And bad reality television, but let's tackle one problem at a time.
These
I know, I know I just got other shoes but I like to have a few in rotation. And for the record I  LOVE these. That is right capital letter love. It is serious.


and this 


are the newest additions to my workout/ running collection of awesome gear that I can just not live without.


So this is me only in addition to races add gear.

Exciting news!!!! I broke my own I am not going to run until the 4th of July half' rule and went for a run this morning and it went great. Now I did a tiny run on the treadmill on Tuesday and I felt fine. So today I headed outside for a three miler that turned into a five miler when I discovered a new running trail. I can not believe I did not know it was there. There is this dirt road entrance that I have run by probably a million times and never went down it but today I did and it is a nature area with a trail through a beautiful forest. All of the sudden I was running through the early morning fog in the sunrise with a herd of deer hanging out and birds flying around. It was like I fell through a closet door into Narnia or something. Amazing. It was a great run and I can't wait to run through more of that area. 

Had any surprising runs lately?

  1. BOSU!!!! Ahh, those things are tough and so much fun! I am excited to hear what you do with it :)

    And how exciting that you discovered a new trail! I loved reading how you felt as you found it :)

    I was surprised by my run yesterday am - just that I could go a little faster pace for me, lol!

    1. I am always surprised when I go faster too- and excited! My plan for the BOSU is to do ab work and balance work. That thing is tough. I have absolutely no balance.

  2. Love the Ravennas in that color. The Ravennas really make me wish I needed a stability shoe. :) Enjoy your new trail! Exploring new running routes is one of the best parts of being a runner.

  6. Surprising runs lately? Uh..maybe the 5K I ran Wednesday. Didn't expect I'd go as fast as I did. I am super jealous of your lush scenery!

  7. My running partner just got the same shoes. And for embarrassing confessions, I'd like to now admit that there are more than two shows on MTV that I can't stop watching.

    And that trail discovery is one of the things I love about getting to know a place. Also, it's why I hate moving. You have to rediscover all of the secret places.
