1. In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, I got my “girls” squished for the first time. (OK, really it was because I’m *ahem* 41 and finally got my act together.) I’d heard all the horror stories of how much it hurt, etc, especially for those of us who are not well endowed. As it turns out, I’ve done a lot more painful things in my life. I would classify it as mildly uncomfortable. (Of course, I’ve run two marathons and given birth without drugs, so my view of pain may be skewed. And after nursing two kids into their toddler years, the stretching and pulling was nothing’.) So, if your time is approaching, just do it. It’s not a big deal. /PSA
2. October is my favorite month of the year. It’s a little crazy for us most years with soccer games, cub scouts, and both boys’ birthdays as well as races (Army 10 Miler and MCM are this month), but the weather is generally amazing. The leaves are turning, there’s just enough cool in the air to make running awesome, and most of the tourists have gone home. So, if you are looking for a good time to visit DC, this would be it!
3. I finally need some new shoes. Between the minimalist running and the reduced miles, my regular running shoes have not seen a lot of action this year. In fact, I’m not sure I bought a new pair in 2011 prior to this last weekend. Since I had a chance to stop at the Mecca of natural running, I couldn’t resist buying my new shoes there. Please welcome my Newton’s to the blog. Aren’t they purty?

I waited until 41 to get my first mammogram too. The doc said 40, but I blew her off for a year.I agree, it's not so bad. The best is getting the note that there are no problems, whew! Nice PSA.

Hrm, not what I was expecting from the title. Nice shoes, though. Cheers!
