Random Thoughts Thursday

How is your week going so far?  A few of my students were coughing and sneezing on Monday and Tuesday and I also ended up sick.  Wednesday was tough even though it was half day at school.  We had meetings after school and wished I would have gone home.  Oh well, enough complaining and let me tell you about my Thursday thoughts.

I love running in the Brooks Launch 4.  I have 3 pairs in rotation and 10 new pairs in boxes.  I knew there were 2 pairs in stock at Running Warehouse and meant to buy them.  I got distracted and forgot.  On Wednesday I checked and my size was no longer available.  Dang!  I was kind of upset but also relieved.  I guess I kept buying more and more pairs, not only because I love them, but because they were available and on sale.

Isn’t it time to put away Christmas decorations?  I’ve run by a few houses that still have decorations.  It is almost February.  Time to go, right?

lululemon 40|80 Challenge.  This year I was very excited to sign up.  I missed it last year and there were GREAT prizes for those that completed the challenge.  I didn’t complete 80 kilometers but did finish with 63.  I ended up in 35,482th place.  The prize was a 25% discount to any lululemon item.  At first I was upset about it (I wanted a free shirt or shorts like last year) but then realized that while I didn’t get exactly what I wanted, I ended up “winning” because this challenge actually motivated me not only to run but to do it outside.  It wasn’t easy because there were some very cold days that I wondered why I wasn’t on the treadmill.  🙂

Jumanji.  During Winter Break I saw the new Jumanji movie.  It was actually pretty good and funny.  I love Dwayne Johnson!  Then I wanted to see the first one with Robin Williams.  It wasn’t on Netflix nor Amazon Prime.  My sister borrowed it from a friend and we saw it this past weekend.  Great movie too!  But I guess any movie with Robin Williams is a great movie.

What are some of your random thoughts today?

  1. I’m glad you were able to find something positive in that Lululemon award. I think it was pretty rotten, offering a coupon for a “prize”. The badge was fine by me. I won’t be shopping there.

    • It is rotten. That is true. They make so much money and they could have offered a better prize. Badge? How did I miss it?

  2. You know what? I’m perfectly fine running on my treadmill on a super cold, super windy day (like yesterday & today). I think there’s some treadmill shaming going on in the running community. 🙂

    I haven’t tried the launch. Which reminds me another site has one of the shoes I rotate through on sale today . . . hopefully by the time I get around to it they’ll still have my size. 🙂

Thank you for your comment!
