13.5 Miles (Sun-Tuesday)
Squeeze ’em in Strides
It’s 2013 and everyone’s writing about their resolutions, recaps of 2012, and what not.
So here’s my version: 2012 had more good than bad and 2013 is all about taking things 1 day at a time. Enough said.
Instead of getting into the dirty deets about the past or future, I’d rather tell you about some things I’m digging right now at this very moment.
My Little Buttheads
My New Jacket
So if you are a Costco member, do yourself a favor and run, don’t walk to the store. If you don’t have a membership – go stand outside and beg someone to take you or do yourself a favor and show up on my front porch and I’ll drive you there myself. Because you need and I mean NEED this jacket.
It’s a wicking, back venting athletic jacket. Three pockets with zippers (two in the normal hip pattern and one on the upper arm) CHECK. Thumbholes – CHECK. Flip over mittens /handcovers- CHECK. I’m seriously in love with it.
Yes I’m a little too excited, but as I’ve mentioned before Michael Phelps and I have a few things in common (see below), but mostly it’s that I have freakishly long arms.
So when I find a jacket that the thumbholes actually fit on my thumbs and not in the middle of my forearm, I get
a little ridiculously enthusiastic. It’s like I just discovered that chocolate was added as a food group by the FDA.
You do not know how excited I am that the arms are actually long enough for me.
Oh, did I mention this bad boy is $24.99?!?!?!?!?!
Um yeah. You’re welcome because your 40-60 degree training will never be the same again for that price. And with the 80 some odd dollars you saved on this jacket, you can r
egister for a super fun race go to Yogurtland 35 times.
What are you digging lately?
What’s piece of workout gear is the hardest for you to buy?
