This and That Tuesday

Originally New Balance told me that I wouldn't be able to get shoes until November. Imagine my surprise when NB contacted ME and let me know that my shoes were available to order. That is good customer service in my book!

My husband did his first bootcamp. He now understands why I always say there is no way I'd do the stuff that I do in camp on my own. He's out of town again, but may be back Wednesday night....I was teasing him saying that camp might be a deterrent and keep him out of town.

There is talk about doing a 6, 7, or 10 mile mud run next month. I am resisting the peer pressure. I'm not sure I'd have fun at a longer one. Me and another gal suggested a compromise for another run that is only 3.25 miles. Plus, you get a cape, a medal, and there's a FIRE obstacle. That sounds much better to me.

I'm hoping that family commitments for Thanksgiving will allow me to do the Turkey Trot. There's a 5K and an 8-mile run. I've done the 8-mile a few times and it has always been a blast. Plus, I'm planning on getting a new hat. I have 3 leaders at the moment. (Click image to make it bigger...I hope!)

Since I'm getting new shoes, I'm thinking I might get a new Road I D as well. If you don't have one and don't carry ID with you when you run, you should consider getting one. I have a medicine allergy that I want to be sure they know about if something were to happen to me.

And another safety item my husband taught me, on your phone you should put your contact person (for me my husband - you: spouse, partner, bff, whomever) listed as "ICE" - in case of emergency. Turns out that responders will look at your phone and this will help them immediately figure out who to contact.
Hmmmm, I normally make my oatmeal with almond milk. Today after the two camps yesterday and the one this morning, I was a bit of a zombie. I accidentally made it with skim milk instead. It doesn't taste as good.
At the rate I'm going, I will win the procrastinator award for getting ready for the trip. I get little flashes of panic when I read that people have new outfits, are packed, etc. now and then. But not to the point of action. Not to worry, this is quite normal for me.

I've been doing the soy vanilla milk in my oatmeal and it's freaking A.MAZ.ING!

Wow! I am so thrilled that NB contacted YOU!! What amazing customer service! I think the next pair I get (which will be soon!) will be NB!!

Cat said...

I'm so very happy to hear about your NB shoes!! Yay!!

Also - the bunny pictures had me actually snorting. Simply too freaking cute.

I also like Hat B best with the pilgrim looking turkey. /nod

Finally - as for late packing, I pack occasionally the night before...sometimes the morning OF! Don't stress and don't let others panic you. You have time.
Besides, it's not like it's camping where if you don't bring something you dont' have it. It's a hotel for heavens sake. They have all sorts of stuff and there are stores nearby. *grin* Excuse to shop!

Ooo, thanks for the shoe tag idea! Very good thinking on behalf of whoever came up with that one.

I'm cracking up at Zombie Bunny. I like Hat Leader B by the way! I love how enthusiastic you are about the runs you do.

Dawnya said...

You are a super duper athlete. I love that about you. I love that you are always doing something new and different.

It is so amazing and motivating that you never stop. You keep going.

Thank you.

Ronnie said...

I agree with Dawnya! You are definitely an inspiration, Fluffy! :)

Also, I love the bunnies. hehe
