|For me? I shouldn't have! Oh wait, I TOTALLY deserve it!|
In addition to these lovely shoes, I picked up a new pair of running socks. I figured anti-blister socks are never a bad thing and I had a 20% off coupon. I also picked up my new running bra. I love my Moving comfort Fiona and what is crazy is that pre-Katrina I needed a 36DD and now post-Katrina I'm a 32DD. So apparently my rib cage shrank 4 inches (or more likely I lost 4 inches of yucky back fat). I am excited for the fun colour though! Then I stocked up on BLOCKS of which I bought 7 packages (crazy - though I can eat 1 every long run and since I'm breaking 30km that could easily become 2). I also got a few gels. I'm really not a fan but I think I should keep them on hand for when I run out of my cookies or just need something easier to swallow without chewing. Finally, instead of stocking up on running jelly beans and such I just went out and bought candy. My running mama gurus over at run like a mother (seriously Sarah and Dimity you ROCK), had a podcast about running fuel and they said simple sugar and carbs is what you need and that includes candy! My running coach agreed so I got to spend like $15 on running candy. Seriously, who gets to spend $15 on over a pound of candy when it isn't Halloween! I love being a runner! Now I just need to figure out how to keep my husband and kids from eating my running candy before I need it on Saturday!
