I don’t know how to begin this post. Thursday posts are meant to be random and I can as heck say that will be the case here. I’ve also written a lot of in depth and “more serious” blog posts this week.
Wow, that is a lot even for me…I guess I should have spread them out more but I’m not a planner. Apparently serious blogging is what I do when tapering so today I need a space to just gather my trivial and scatter brained thoughts.
Where to begin?
I’m flying to Phoenix today with the Mr. LOLZ. The Philadelphia airport is only 10 minutes from my house. It’s so nice being that close to things…in college I had to drive 3 hours to the closest airport. In VA I was about 30 minutes from the closest…so this just seems weird.
On another note, I saw a wild turkey in South Jersey the other day. For those who don’t know, I moved from a rural area of NJ (where the nations cranberry’s are harvested) to “the stereotypical city Jersey”. So seeing a turkey in downtown Haddonfield is like…seeing a buffalo…in buffalo.
Instead of running this week I’ve been cleaning my house. I know you are probably as shocked as I am (and my parents are) but I actually have a clean house right now. I want someone to visit so I can showcase my house. (So seriously if you are in Philadelphia or close by…I only live about 2 miles away in NJ).
I recently purchased a pair of CW-X compression pants. They were 105 dollars but full leg compression. Full leg compression is something I’ve never had so we will see how they work out!
Speaking of products I’ve been enjoying lately…I’m turning into a lululemon girl. I bought a pair of leggings on sale a few weeks ago. They were great and weren’t see through so I bought another pair.
Tim and I are getting married on a Sunday because every Saturday except one was booked for 2015. That Saturday was actually February 21 and I’m really glad we didn’t choose to get married last weekend. I can tolerate cold weather but I don’t think I would have enjoyed that!
Last night I got to hang out with personal friend and fast runner Liz! Liz is a local writer and runner in the area. She is fast, humble and recently started a blog. We went to a diner that has been on my “to do” list for a while now.
On another race note, it’s my first race in a while not running in a race singlet. I bought a new race singlet. i haven’t run in it yet…probably not smart but oh well.
I think that is all of the random thoughts I have this week. I should probably go pack before I leave in a couple of hours…
Questions for you:
How do you spend time while tapering?
This week I cleaned and wrote blog posts. It counts I guess…
What am I forgetting to pack for Phoenix?
(I will check in right before I leave LOL).
