I won the contest!!! Can’t believe I actually won!!!
Last Friday I entered a Running Room FB contest for a new pair of Brooks shoes. Just needed to post what I love about winter running with the #runhappy. I also included a little selfie of moi running outside on a snowy day and voilà!
Tons of random votes from all across the country and the announcement came yesterday afternoon that I was indeed the winner. Will be picking up my new pair of kicks at my local Running Room this week
I’ve never won anything before so this is pretty exciting for me. Hmmm….maybe I should play the lottery too!!
With brand new shoes just in time for a 15cm snowstorm tomorrow I have no excuse but to join a gym! I’ve actually been putting it off for a couple of weeks (although been doing the research and visiting a few places around town) but with new shoes which I refuse to wear outside until the snow melts and the streets are clean again, it must be done!!! This way my old shoes can get wet and dirty outside and my new clean babies will only see the treadmill until April
My last pair were Asics and my new winning pair are Brooks which I’ve never tried before. It will be interesting to see the difference. Anyone out there have a shoe preference? I’d be interested to know your choices. I have a terrible habit of buying shoes for superficial reasons and not practical ones. This usually involves the running shoe salesman trying to convince me to buy a particular pair that are a good choice for my feet and running style but do not in any way please me aesthetically. Needless to say it takes me forever to buy running shoes!! However….I love the purple, pink and orange of these shoes, so fingers crossed they fit well and I get the thumbs up from the running shoe gurus 😉
So it’s officially 21 days until my next race and I will admit to slacking off in the training department lately. It’s been cold, wet, icy and I’ve been feeling a bit sick this last week too. My little monkeys have brought home the first batch of winter germs from school and daycare and lovingly passed them on to me. However, I need to get my training into gear because with only 21 days left, the time will go by very quickly, especially over the holiday week.
Mount Royal Resolution Run is coming soon and right now the equation goes like this….
Less than stellar training + Snowy hills + below freezing temps + night race = Lost in the dark, hypothermic runner popsicle
However if I up my training, work those hills and train on the course I might actually finish with a half decent time! So that’s my goal and I’m getting back on track towards it!
Here we goooooo!!!!!
Wishing all my friends in blog land a very happy day
