Lots of Randomness!

This post will be filled with lots of randomness.... Consider yourself warned!

First, and most exciting: I got new shoes!!  I have been needing new shoes (in my own opinion) for awhile now.  My old shoes just "feel" warn down.  When I reported this fact to my husband, he didn't think I was serious.  I was.  I don't go by milage, I go by feel and they feel old to me.  There is little support in the arch and I'm a "stability" needing kind of girl.  I then remembered that I had a $50 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods that I won as a result of our school fitness contest.  This made the convincing of the hubby much easier!  Sale: $104.99 minus $50.00 gift card = almost happy hubby and 1 happy running Michele.

Aren't they beautiful??  Mizuno Wave Inspire 9s

Another random fact for the week.... we are dog sitting.  My mom and dad are vacationing in Jamaica for the week and we have their dog.  That makes for 4 dogs in our house.  Good thing their dog is calm and quiet (read: opposite of all 3 of our dogs!)  My son loves their dog because she will let him come near her.  In fact, when I can't find him, I look here:

Hanging with Grandma's dog is apparently almost as much fun as hanging with her!

Another note on my son...  He CAN open the cat food and he likes to eat it.  BAD MOMMY moment #1 for the evening.  I'm pretty sure he got a few mouthfuls down before I caught him.  Oops!!

I'm feeling *mostly* better.  I still have a hacking cough that I can't seem to get rid of, but I won't let it stop me.  I swam for 60 minutes Sunday and biked for 60 minutes Saturday. Tonight I plan to run.  I'm hoping for 7 or 8 miles (nice and easy) but we will see.  Hubby is giving blood at our school blood drive tonight, so I have to wait for him to come home. 

So how's that for a lot of random things?  Happy Monday!


  1. Love the new shoes! I really like all of my Mizunos!

  2. I like the shoes!!

    And I may have laughed out loud about your son eating the cat food.
