1. The Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle is this Sunday. I’ve ran this race six times since 2006. My best time is 52:18 in 2010 so my goal this year is to PR.
I am not cool about my start time. The actual race starts at 6:30 am. Of course I am not a speedy runner so my start time is at 8:55, Wave 2. Boo. Funny how those in Wave 1 and maybe 2 will be done by the time I start to run.
2. I like Picky Bars. Well, what’s not to like? They’re tasty and have lots of good stuff for us. They’re “real food balanced for sports”. Just this past weekend I became a member of the Picky Club and I got my first shipment yesterday. As a club member I get 18 bars for $37, free shipping, samples of new flavors, a free shirt, and other fun club gifts.
3. I love a good sale. I bought two pairs of Brooks PureFlows 2 for $50 each from Running Warehouse. They still have more pairs available so I think I will purchase a few more or all of them. I love running in those shoes and I don’t think I’ve ever paid $50 for a pair of Brooks shoes.
