shiny happy sneakers

good morning!

my morning started off with coffee and a chocolate chip cookie on my ride in to work

that means it's going to be a good day, right?


when i got home last night, i practically jumped for joy

they finally arrived!

sidebar - bill picked up a shoe and smelled the inside of it - saying "i love the smell of new shoes."  weirdo.

i couldn't wait to lace them up!

i went out solo without woodford, and completed a mile.

i wanted to do more - but it was so windy - i couldn't get my breathing down while running and by the end i felt really winded and my side was actually hurting from my poor breathing.

it's still cold today, but the wind isn't as bad - so maybe tonight i'll venture a bit further out.

the best part of the run -

grippy shoes!  seriously, i had forgot how nice new shoes grabbing the pavement felt.

annnnd - no shin pain!  none at all!  which could also mean i've built my endurance back up - but let's pretend it's the pretty shoes.

i also think i kept a slightly faster pace for most of the run - i forgot to plug in my garmin, so i'm not sure - but it was probably because i didn't have a doggy stopping to pee on every bush.

my motivation to run today:

 "Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"
- Peter Maher, Canadian marathon runner
