1. I got some new running sneakers!!! My older ones were hurting my feet on the longer runs and I read somewhere that your shoes should be a size larger for long runs because your feet swell. Makes sense so I went and got fitted. After 6 or 7 pairs I found the right ones:
2. I have discovered Chipotle. The restaurant, not the flavor. It is delicious. And cheap. I have read about other bloggy folks eating there and didn't have a clue what it was. Well, I happened upon it in Portland the other day and dropped in to grab some dinner. I had the buritto bowl with chicken. YUM! Now I know what all the fuss is about.
3. I am terrible with dates and times. Do not trust me with anything like that. If I tell you Sunday at 3, make sure you check with someone else to make sure that is correct. For example: Wednesday was a busy busy day. I was scheduled to leave work early to go pick up my daughter and 5 other girls at basketball camp. But I also remembered that I had a continuing education class in the opposite direction that same night. Thus, we rearranged the schedule so that my husband could pick up the girls and I could get to my class on time. I drive the hour to Portland, kill time buying my sneakers and checking out the mall and then head to the hotel where my class was supposed to be. I enter the room and no one was there. Not even a paper or a person or anything. I ask the hotel clerk where the meeting is and they say there is not a meeting today. Ugh. Back out to the car I go to recheck the paper--maybe a different hotel? Nope, the meeting was 6/22. LAST wed. Good God. What a waste of time and travel for nothing. At least I got to find/try Chipotle. Do you suppose I could still deduct the milage and meal??? lol
Toying with the idea of a 1/2 marathon in October. Is that possible? Do I have enough time to train for that? The longest run to date for me has been 6 miles. Hmmmmm. Any thoughts/advice on that?
