I’m turning 25 next Friday and I can’t say I’m too thrilled about it. I guess I should be saying “YES! I can finally rent a car without the added fee!” But after that, what’s left? I’ll tell you what’s left…senior citizen discount! Whomp. Whomp. The only thing that makes that sting of “another year older” a little better is PRESENTS. Who doesn’t just LOVE presents!
Apparently the older we get, the more difficult we are to shop for. My parents had me pre-select my gifts this year, leaving me super anxious in anticipation the last few weeks. Naturally I asked for airfare and running gear. So I got a slew of Nike-running gear and round trip airfare to my lovely BAWSTON (Boston, MA)! I can’t wait to continue my half marathon training by running along the Charles River!
(Look at that pic! It’s legit the most beautiful city run!)
On a more “my current running news”: I’ve been running a lot of tracks this week. I’ve been dropping by Valley Catholic & some middle school by SE Yamhill for a couple hours with my mom’s dog. It’s a strange thing to say but I’ve always wanted to go running with a dog! I never have! Tho, I’ve decided to bench Honey Bear (my moms dog) from any future runs as she completely folds after about two miles. Giving me a look like “we’re walking now. Actually, sitting is better.” So much for that running partnership. I’ve also taken to running around the Wilsonville Business Center during my lunch break. Being a running novice and all, I’m trying to just run a minimum of four miles every day. If I can run farther, I will. If my shins give me grief, I call it good. So far, So good!!
Here’s some of the cool stuff I got:
Nike Vapor Running Jacket! It’s wicked cute! This fully weatherproof and lightweight jacket was an absolute necessity with the Oregon Rainy weather. Love it!
Nike lightweight waist pack w/four water bottles! This is much more lightweight than I had anticipated. I don’t feel like it’s weighing me down at all. I can run with it and be completely balanced! A++++++
Nike Air Pegasus 29! Made for running on the pavement- super cushy! I ran a 10K in these shoes earlier today and it was like running on fluffy clouds and marshmallows. The perfect shoes to run 13.1 miles!
