Personally now that I write whenever I want, about whatever I want, I enjoy writing much more, but I do think a Five Things Friday post is in order for today. Sound good?
1. I almost constantly have sand in my running shoes.
As my long runs are slowly becoming longer, I have been seeking out different running routes. While I love running the boardwalk along the beach, it's a stone surface and honestly I'm so paranoid about stress fractures that sometimes I think I can feel my bones screaming at me when I run on it.
So, I've slowly transitioned to throwing a few miles along the actual beach in there, on the packed down sand, just close enough to the water to feel the danger of possibly soaking my shoes with a surprise wave...
Which is awesome, but I pretty much always end up with a pile of sand in my shoes by the time I get home.
2. I have an irrational fear that a cat is going to attack me. They are everywhere, always. Sometimes I'll look up and there will be one sitting on a wall, glaring down at me. I just have this ingrained image of a cat randomly jumping at my head and going apeshit.
There is absolutely no reason to be sharing this but I just had to put it out there.
4. I'm less paleo than I used to be.
This is random, but I've realized over the last month or so that I need a little more grain in my life than I've allowed in the past. I used to be pretty aggressively paleo during the week, yet now I'm much more prone to adding brown rice/quinoa to dinner, having some oatmeal with my breakfast,
5. I think our dog is getting more Christmas gifts than me.
Which is fine, because some of her gifts benefit me :) At the top of the list that Amazon is throwing our way is a running leash that will go around my waist. I've heard running further distances with dogs while holding onto a leash can mess up your gait (probably doesn't help if your dog psychotically chases pigeons) and so I'm interested to see if this leash helps us become better running buddies.
|For the record, this is not Kai. This is a random meme.|
I'll report back on that one.
Anyways, there's your mindless Friday read if you were looking for one. Have a fabulous weekend.
