I’m gonna whine for a minute here. I got some lovely new shoes yesterday. (Asics Gel Nimbus, not Cumulus). And they do look quite lovely. Unfortunately they are horribly uncomfortable to run in. Because they are TOO DAMN SMALL. Ugh. I went in with slightly swollen feet from running and bought shoes that the running guy said had plenty of room. But, no, they apparently didn’t as 3 miles into my 6 mile run today, my toe started hitting the front and by mile 5, I had to stop. My foot hurt for most of the day. I’m hoping they’ll exchange them, but my problem is that the other foot is already a bit lost in this size. I get the feeling that I’ll be buying a half size bigger and just wearing two different sized shoes. Doesn’t that sound fun?
On the awesome side, Shoo did great at preschool so I had 4.5 hours all to myself today. Whoa! Two days of that this week. I’m not sure what to do with myself (ok, really I have 7 years worth of errands and house projects to do, not to mention running, so I’ll keep plenty busy). Today I got to run and then picked up 65 pounds of grass fed local beef (or as local as you can get to a major metropolitan area LOL). Then I did some stuff around the house and ate a peaceful lunch by myself. I could really get used to this. :o)
