Since we ran hard yesterday and I plan on running hard tomorrow I just ran four easy miles this morning. It was a really nice morning and I ran again without music! I don't know what it is, but in the mornings I hate music! When I run any other time of day, I have to run with music or else I will quit early. I am kind of grouchy in the morning so I get annoyed really easily and music seems to just tick me off for some reason. It's kind of nice to just enjoy the morning and have my quiet time to pray, think about the day and WAKE UP!
My award for winning the 5k race on friday was $100 gift certificate to a local running store! Cha Ching! It was burning a whole in my poor pocket so today we went out and spent it! I got some cute Nike Shorts and a cute Adidas shirt. I have a tough time finding running shirts because I have a torso that belongs on someone that's 6'5" so most shirts are never long enough. The only brand that really fits me is Lululemon and we don't have a store here in Oklahoma (and I'm not rolling in the dough, so I only buy it for myself as a treat. Sometimes I treat myself quite a lot though. If you haven't tried it..don't. You will be addicted and love it and never want to work out in anything else or even change outfits for that matter. You'll be poor. You'll be a really cute, poor, happy runner) so I am trying out the adidas shirt. It looks pretty long so I'll let you know how it goes.
And then we enjoyed a little Pei Wei before heading to the mall for me to get "threaded". Yes, that's what I said. Have you heard of it? It's amazing. It's for your eyebrows and is like waxing, but it doesn't hurt as bad, it doesn't rip your skin off or make you look like you got in a fight with Mike Tyson. They do it all with this little piece of thread! Now, I'm telling ya, hair was flying like they were threading Chewbaca when they were working on me, so if it workes for me it can work on anyone! (Side note: they do bikini areas...normal, sure. Not normal: they are at a kiosk in the middle of our mall. WHAT? Who does that? We're in Oklahoma people. Conservative capital of the world!)
