Countdown to Warrior Dash - 46 Days

They're so pretty!!



I finally did it. I bought my very first pair of real running shoes. I've bought fairly decent cross trainers and one good pair of walking shoes before, but no actual "running" shoes. I went down to Luke's Locker, waited my turn and ran up and down their track (feeling like an idiot) and bought my fancy new shoes. (It turns out, despite all the pages I've ripped out of magazines, running shoes are a lot less expensive than I thought they were.- A very good thing. )

I'm not making any promises, but I'm going to at least make an attempt at running. The short term goal is to be able to run enough to be able to run with Petey. If this goes well, maybe....and I'm making no promises here...a sprint triathalon.

Impressive! I 'was' a runner (big sigh)...but then I hurt my foot, we moved, lost my running buddies...blah,blah,blah. Keep telling myself to Just Do It. Somehow that isn't sufficiently motivating. More luck to you! :)
