One detail I forgot to include in yesterday's race report was that I did not run in new shoes. For those devoted readers who remeber that I mentioned on Friday that I was going to get new shoes, I did not lie -- I did go, I just didn't get the shoes on Friday.
Because my feet are smurf-sized, the store was out of my size (they only carry about one munchkin size per store) so they had to call one of the other stores, who did have it in stock, and have it sent over on Saturday, after the race. So I ran the race in an old pair of shoes, which is probably best anyway, and then picked up my new pair. And man, they are purty!
Brooks changed the colors on them and now they are silver and periwinkle (when I oohed and ahhed over them in the store and remarked on their new color, my husband asked "WTF is 'periwinkle'?"). I haven't had a chance to take them out for a spin yet because today is a rest day, but tomorrow, you can bet that I'm excited to lace those "bullets" (b/c they're silver, I'm naturally gonna call them the "bullets") on and test 'em out.
I tried to post a picture of them on here -- so everyone could admire their beauty -- but Blogger is being a be-atch and I'm having some issues wih uploading pics. So, I'm sorry, you'll have to do without a visual for the "bullets."
Like I said, today I rest. Like God, I too need a day off, plus it's Super Bowl Sunday! The one day of the year my husband and I watch sports, so this afternoon we're headed to a friend's house for a party: lots of beer, food, and commercials (sorry, "football").
But, tomorrow, I am back to the miles. Eric challenged me to a February mile-off to see who can rack up the most miles in the month, and anyone who wants to join the challenge can feel free to be a part of it -- be forewarned that we're aready 3 days into the month -- but Wendy? You can't participate. Anyone who runs 173 miles in a month is gonna smoke us in this kind of challenge, so I'm sorry, you'll just have to sit back and observe the mortals and their mileage.
