this website never fails to crack me up:http://dailymumps.com/2006/06/20/shes-fresh-as-ever
i bought new running shoes yesterday! my knees were all sore (probably from the lunges, but it could've been the run!) after my workout the other night, and i thought about it and realized i hadn't bought new shoes in foreeeevvveerrrrrrrr. so i went to http://www.runnersdepot.com/
and was so happy i chose that over, say, sports authority. they watch you walk to see what type of feet you have (mine: neutral), then have you try on shoes, make you wiggle your toes like ma used to do, then invite you to go for a quick jog outside to see how they feel. then the saleswoman suggested i take them for a full workout on a treadmill to make sure they were good for me so i could bring 'em back if they weren't! the phrase "you get what you pay for" comes back again and again, doesn't it?
i'm really enjoying the whole working-out thing, rather than trudging along as i have in the past. i'm going to see what kind of time i can get on a 5k on july 9, i think, then see how much i can improve that over the next few months. it's nice to have something to work towards other than those size 6 jeans.
today after our workout, i got my new swimsuit on and went to bask on the shore. the sun went away. i slept instead. i woke up to hear that the today show was interviewing people about summer reading. i tucked my book under my whole foods bag. i was sweaty and, after my nap, probably covered in sand. well, there goes the chance at my 15 minutes...
random thought of the day: why are people so goddamn
crazy? honestly, do they not realize they're saying the things aloud that they are? you'd think you'd have some sense of "crazy" and "normal" and "things you should say out loud" and "things that will make me sound like a complete asshole." but apparently not.
