So, rather than work on a video project today, I find myself shopping online. After spending last week with high school kids, I'm feel it's only appropriate that I treat myself to a little something.
What to get? Seeing as though a 26.2 mile run may be in my future, a fuel belt might be in order although I don't know how crazy I am about running with 4 water bottles attached to me. Running shorts are always something good to have on hand. I need some shorts that have the key pouch. Do you know how time-consuming it is to have to lace my key through my shoes? Socks are always handy. Finally, there are shoes. Do I need new shoes? Not right now. Usually around my birthday (only 48 more shopping days, people!) I ask for a new pair of shoes. The ones I have are fine, but I swear that they may have been a bit uncomfortable during this morning's run between mile 2 and 2.25. Ouch!
So there you have it. A little extra in my wallet and it's burning a hole in my running shorts. Any suggestions for a semi-dedicated runner, devoted gadget-geek that still hasn't registered for his marathon is always appreciated.
P.S. - Are anyone else's times suffering due to this heat? I was sailing along this spring and early summer and, lately, I've noticed a discernible increase in my times. I'm blaming it on the fact that my neighborhood association is now testing for HGH.
P.P.S - This post may seem similar to that of Xenia's. I assure you that I had this idea before she did. She just has the advantage of posting 6 hours before any of us. Damn you time change! *shakes fist violently*
