Have you ever had a day where you know exactly what you’re going to post about, but you just can’t seem to do it?
That was me last night and earlier this morning.
Topic was determined (yay for Tuesday!!) and I knew what I was going to say, but the discipline, or motivation, or whatever was completely lacking.
Having a messed up ankle sure doesn’t help when talking about the awesome running gear I bought for myself, considering I’m NOT ABLE TO RUN RIGHT NOW 😦
In case you missed it last night, here’s a super sexy picture of my turgid (heh) ankle.
In case you’re uncertain of the turgid reference, here’s a YouTube video for you….
And then there’s the knowledge that it’s the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. And that just makes me all sorts of emotional. I feel like it’s wrong to not acknowledge it, but I also don’t have anything thought-provoking or profound to say about it.
But I am thinking about it.
Now that y’all know all about why this post took me a bit to write, let’s get to the meat of it.
Today’s are all running focused – first up clothes!
This means you’ll be subject to a lot (seriously, a lot!) of bathroom mirror selfies. #sorrynotsorry
I told you it was a lot 🙂
I lurve Oiselle clothes. A lot. ❤ They’ve become my absolute favourite clothes to run it.
1 – they’re totally cute and soft and BIRDS. Yay!
2 – I love what they stand for.
I’ve worn everything with the exception of the Lesko Shimmel and I have to say, I love of them.
Since my mileage is approaching crazy-ville, I reasoned I would benefit from more shoes. I know, I know, but still.
These arrived on Friday and I was pumped!
Yesterday I mentioned one of the pairs was too big – that would be the pink ones – the Gravity III’s. I’ve already heard back from Newton and the exchange to a half-size smaller is no problem at all.
Newton Running gets a HUGE thumbs up from me for amazing customer service!
With these purchases I should be set for training and races for the next little while, but as every runner knows, we can always justify a purchase 🙂
Tell me: What’s your favourite brand of running apparel and shoes?
I’m linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday today.
