2. My long run was 18 miles this week, it was supposed to be next week, but next week looks really busy and I wasn't sure if I could fit it in, so I did it this week and next week will be a cutback week. It actually works better in the long run and the run felt pretty good. Maybe I can do this marathon thing again!
3. New running shoes showed up in my mailbox yesterday...YAY! Not that it was a surprise I scored them on Ebay. I haven't run in these before but I tried them on a couple months ago at the local running store and loved how they felt.
I also have a pair of Altra Torins on the way also from Ebay. If a person in really patient deals can be found! I wanted ideally a different color since I already have the black ones, but these were too good of a deal to pass up, plus they will blend into my shoe collection nicely.
4. I tried out a new hydration vest from SLS3 yesterday on a short run, after some adjusting I decided I really liked it. although I don't know that I like it more than my Orange Mud double barrel quiver. Time will tell I guess.
It is cheaper than Orange Mud. I had a code to get it on Amazon for 9,90 so I decided to try it. The biggest drawback to it for me is how high it sits on the back of my neck.
I also do not think anyone really petite or a size extra small would like it, I have it tightened nearly all the way.
It comes with two 9.5 ozwater bottles for the pockets in the front (but can fit 16 oz bottles) and has a pocket for a bladder in the back, but doesn't come with the bladder. There is a pocket big enough for my iPhone 6 in the front as well and another really small pocket that would be good for a small key or maybe chapstick?
5. Okay this is probably stretching it a bit for five but... aren't my lilies pretty?!
