So, this weekend I went and tried on a whole bunch of shoes. What did I find?
I found out I love Brooks. I love them more than anything, aside from Logan. They fit my feet snugly but always have room in the toe box I just LOVE them!!! HAPPY FEET!!!
…however, they are pretty pricey. So the lady suggested I get the older version of my shoe ordered to my home store. However, they refused to send them. I could buy them online but they didn’t accept my gift card.
And lo and behold – I just bought Brooks Glycerin 8’s online using my gift card and the shoes are being sent to my home store. YAY!!!!
I’m not going to lie my feet really loved the Ghost 4’s but how could I refuse a $7 out of pocket shoe ?!?!? I couldn’t. FACT.
I will miss my Glycerin 9’s but they will always hold a special place in my heart because they got me through me first race

what I’d like to know is this, can I start training for my marathon right now? or will that ruin me for my 10k? my only concern is that my training will be more focused on endurance and not enough on speed. Thoughts??
I designed a plan on SMARTCOACH and I know HRG brought this up yesterday and I completely forgot i had made one for my 10k race (oops obviously not sticking to it) so I altered it to a massive 39 week marathon training plan and it’s pretty sweet.
Ali (not me sillies) recommended Hal Higdon’s plans so I bookmarked his too. I just don’t know. His has me running more, shorter runs and the SC has me running less times per week but better workouts. I just don’t know.
ya so I grouped this part together because you guys aren’t going to believe what went down yesterday…..
Colin came home with Reese Peanut Buttercups and THIS is what he offered me!!!!
Half eaten chocolate?! can you believe it?!?!?!?!? A pack comes with 3! I know this because I bought one the other day, you know Colin, where we all shared it! and this is what he decided to give me…that smile is getting you no where mister!
Guess who’s mint chocolate is getting eaten today….yep, yours Colin
1. do the people in your life take your food/sweet/chocolate love seriously??
Colin thinks I’m greedy, he thinks he should be allowed some treats that he shouldn’t have to share. What I say – then buy TWO!
2. training plans?? should I finish my 10k training or swap for the full marathon right now?
