Feels like Friday already!

Finally had a good run - seems like the past two weeks have been filled with either crappy running or no running at all.  But last night was a good run.  Granted, it was only 2 miles and they were incredibly slow, but I felt in control of my breathing, my footfalls, everything.  I felt strong.  And strength while running is something that makes me feel like maybe I'm not such a farce after all.

Another good thing about last night's run was that I got to road (trail) test my new shorts.  I was a little hesitant to try them because I worried that they'd bunch up, but they totally didn't.  So thrilled, because I really wanted a pair of shorts for this summer, when it's hotter than hades and I didn't feel like wearing the added layer of a skirt w/compression shorts.   So I will be buying a couple more pairs of these lovely shorts (Brooks 5" Woven Shorts, for anyone who is curious) once I figure out where the heck the $$ is coming from.

Pitfall of being a stay at home mom on a limited budget who has been doing a lot of shopping and travelling lately?  You end up broke.  And now is not a good time to be broke, because I'm headed to New York tomorrow!

Michelle and I are taking a bus up tomorrow morning to the "Big Apple" to see an old friend, catch a Broadway show, do some walking in Central Park, and basically just do whatever the heck we want for a solid 36 hours. Well, within legal and monetary and moral limits.  We're good girls, dammit!

Anywho, that's what I'm up to this weekend.  Anyone else doing anything fun this weekend?


  1. A trip to New York to do whatever you want for 36 hours sounds fantastic!!! Have a great time!!!

  2. OOh they do look like good shorts.

    When I started running I couldn't wear shorts, cause of chaffing, but now I have no problems, maybe cause I've lost weight.
    Now in summer time I can't run in leggings, omg, so hot, must have shorts.

    As for me this weekend I picked up some new runners (will blog about it soon), and my sister is taking me to see Legally Blonde, which I'm excited about.

    And totally understand what it likes to be broke. It sucks hey. Would be nice if the ex was up to date with child support then I would totally be rolling it.

    Enjoy NYC

    1. I chafe, too, but I have discovered Body Glide and would much rather use a little of that and wear shorts than wear compression pants or anything. =) Too hot to mess around! =)

  3. Have a FUN trip to NYC! That sounds like a blast!! Glad you had a great run, too.

    1. Thanks! Back home, need to catch up with everyone and write about my trip, too.
