Loot!

Today, I went to pick up my race packet for Sunday's Ft Lauderdale Half Marathon, and the packet pick up was at my Local Running Store, so while there, I decided to pick myself up a few goodies. I know that Christmas is just around the bend, and even though I just issued Jerry the edict that he couldn't buy anything more for himself between now and Christmas, I went ahead and bought myself two new pairs of shorts and a new sports bra. Oh, and I threw a new stick of Body Glide in on the purchase as well. I think I will test out the new bra and black/red shorts on my run this evening. I think it will be my first co-ordinated running outfit! Exciting. I feel like matchy-matcherson.

The race on Sunday looks like it promises to be a big improvement over the HM I ran last Sunday: The course is VERY similiar to A1A (where I got my HM PR of 2:09:45), the race seems well-organized, and the medal looks cool. I have more to talk about in terms of previewing this race, but I think I will save those thoughts for tomorrow. For now, I'm gonna skip along and clip tags off my new merch!

Have a splendiferous Friday everyone!

P.S. Jerry and I ended up not playing Rock Band last night at our friends' house while babysitting. Instead, we opted for the WiiFit, and I must say, if anyone wants to challenge me on the hula hooping, I will take you down! Cuz I totally rock the hiz-ouse on that one.

I suck at hoola hooping, but I might be better at it on the WiiFit than in real life.

I like the new gear. Thanks for reminding me that I need to get some more bodyglide!

You are going to have a great race, I know it. Glad you had fun with the baby last night.

I love new running gear! It's the best and it's easy to justify because running is a "good habit." Can't wait to see pics of the new matching outfit.

Good luck this weekend!

I have yet to put together a matchy-matchy outfit. My tops and bottoms always come from different stores. Have fun tomorrow!

You may be the hula hoop queen, but I am the Mike Tyson of Boxing (sans the face tattoo).

Nice loot! Good luck on the half!

Jamoosh said...

Um, I am assuming you are doing the Wii Fit with a beer in one hand.

Marci said...

Good luck on your half this weekend. I'm sending PR thoughts your way.

Lucky you being able to run around in shorts this time of year. I'm staring at my winter pants and wondering how to make the spandex look less spandexy.
