1. Amazing weather. We may still have highs in the 90s but the lows are in the 70s/80s and it makes for great morning runs!
2. Ran into a standoff situation in a neighborhood. Not really sure what was going on, but SWAT was there. What a way to start the weekend.
3. This American Life will now be part of my long runs. I listened to an epi and laughed while I ran. I probably looked insane. Still, it helped keep my mind occupied and this will be a great way to keep up with TAL since I'm not making as many long drives these days. (BTW, I listened to "The Cruelty of Children," David Sedaris was killing me as always. Love him.)
So, I do love other things besides running, and things that I am much better at. Like shopping! I visited TJ Max for the first time this weekend and fell in love! The shoes, the clothes--all brands I love! I saw some amazing J.Simpson suede peep toe stacked heels that I will be coveting. Also a cute Nine West top. The only thing I walked out with though was....
A running skirt. I have said aloud that I think they are dumb, but I saw it in the store and had to try it on. For $12.99 I thought, what the heck, and I tested it out tonight. It has tiny built in spandex shorts, and they tend to ride up on me so I felt like I was running in boyshorts underwear and a short skirt. It was sort of liberating. No, it was fine, though I'm interested to know what it looks like as I'm running. Is it keeping everything covered???
The other item I purchased was an adorable button down shirt dress. Now, I have been to three stores looking for my size. I found a size bigger and a size smaller, and I couldn't decide which one looked better since they didn't have the size I needed. Don't worry, I bought both. I'm still torn, so I will not post a picture until a final decision has been made. I'm also going to one last store tomorrow to see if they have my size :) Persistance. It's my shopping mantra.
