Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and weekend with family and friends. I took nearly the whole week off from blogging. Between being sick the first part of the week and the kids home from school I decided a break was called for. Despite all the sickness in my house I did manage to get out for an easy run in the sunshine on my birthday.
I did zero shopping in the stores over the weekend except to get groceries, but I did some online shopping and spent some birthday money on a HUGE deal on some new running shoes. They were already 50% off and I scored another 30% off on a "Cyber Monday" Amazon deal even though it was Sunday. Now to figure out which pairs to get rid of so my house isn't taken over by running shoes.
Even though I have a lot of retired running shoes I have a hard time getting rid of them since they still have so much possible wear left in them. It is getting a little out of hand though. Part of my rationale for keeping them is that you never know when you need to get a pair muddy. Also wearing the worn out ones out to garden, do yard work etc saves my good ones.
Hoping to get out for a run this morning before the artic front blows a storm in, but I can hear it raining now and freezing cold rainy runs are not my thing. Snow yes, freezing rain...NO!
