Three Thing Thursday

Okay, I'm almost out of my running funk. These pills are really helping.............

1) The Crim - This will be the second consecutive year of missing one of my fav races. It's billed as the Crim Festival of races in Flint, Michigan but the biggie is the 10 mile race. I've always said that this is the perfect race distance. The math to figure out pace is easy and it's not metric. I'll be chasing a little round ball while people are sweating their asses off!

2) I am still loving the track for my runs after work. I haven't come close to being hit by a car while running on the track!

3) Minimalistic shoes are the bomb! I have fallen in love with my New Balance. My calves and right knee haven't but it feels good to hit the track with them.

If it makes you feel any better, it's my second year of missing it too. Last year I was injured so I deferred my entry to this year and go figure, I'm injured again. I didn't bother deferring... I'm going to NYC instead. :)

Enjoy your weekend!

Sweet - new shoes? Sorry to hear you are missing it - golf can wait! I suppose running can as well - haha! I gave up golf this year to run more. I've never been good at golf so I don't really miss it much.
