Goodbye Old Friends
After four miles last night (3 miles speed + warmup and cool down) my Adrenalines are officially retired.
(Sorry about the ugly sock, I really need to do laundry.)
These beautiful shoes got me through my first half marathon and I love them. I had planned to donate them when my local running store was doing a drive, but I am not ready to say goodbye. How stupid is that? They’re just shoes! (But they’re MY HALF MARATHON SHOES!!!!).
I’ve had the time of my life
No I never felt this way before
Yes, I swear it’s the truth
And I owe it all to you
I’ll miss running in you.
(Sorry if you now have that song stuck in your head!)
Songs that I enjoyed running to last night:
- Signs by Snoop Dogg (before he become Snoop Lion)
- Rid Wit Me by Nelly
- Can’t Hold Us Down by Xtina
As you can see I am continuing my trend of only listening to music that is about 10 years old. Those were the days : )
in pain awesome as speedwork always makes me feel, I almost didn’t go for a run last night. Yesterday was my first day back to work and it was *quite* a day. I love my job but after 10 days off things were bound to be kind of crazy.
I’m glad I went back on a Thursday … loving that the weekend is almost here!
By the way, I am hiring on my team at work. If you know anyone in Miami (or who wants to live in Miami) that is a really awesome search engine marketer (3-5+ years experience) please send them my way! Really good salary and benefits, looking to hire the right person asap. Must be really nice because I don’t like to work with a-holes. Bonus points for runners, obviously.
Do you keep your old running shoes?
Back to work this week?
Excited for the playoffs this weekend?!
My Dolphins really stunk it up at the end and didn’t make it, but my backup team is the Packers… GO PACK GO!
