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.
