I certainly feel different LOL. The new Mac is awesome, but my fingers have a steep learning curve with the laptop keyboard. I also got an ipod and so far have loaded ABBA, Air Supply, Uncle Tupelo, The Replacements, Deana Carter, and Paul Westerberg. I need to load some Fugazi and then I have at least enough to keep me happy for a few days LOL. (Yes, I know my music tastes are eclectic. Beer Geek cringed when I mentioned Air Supply and ABBA LOL).
The shorts shopping didn’t go so hot. I did find some acceptable ones at Old Navy that I’ll likely end up buying, but nothing that I loved. Don’t they design shorts for the hourglass figure anymore? I did score some really nice winter running jackets at Sports Authority. So nice, in fact, that I may wear them more with jeans than when running. And I did discover a bathing suit style that works for my body. I tried on a halter style top with some low cut board shorts. I’m short waisted, but this made my torso look much longer. That, combined with all the toning I’ve been doing, made for a really awesome look for me. The bottoms didn’t fit quite right, so I didn’t buy the suit, but now I know what style to try on at other stores.
I was in a crappy mood this afternoon, so I did a half hearted run on the treadmill. 3 miles in 28:15. Eh. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice out, but I think Beer Geek will be getting home late. That means my last pre-race run will be Thursday, which will be a chilly day. Oh, and the current forecast for the race is in the high 30s. That’s chilly, but better than hot.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll delve into my reasoning for not aiming for a sub-2. Or maybe I’ll just talk about all the chocolate I’ve been eating in the name of carbo loading…
