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?
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?
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. 🙂
I am sorry but I didn’t mean to do any treadmill shaming. I also prefer running on it on when I know I cannot run outside.
Oh no, it wasn’t you, it’s just something I’ve noticed in some runners. I’ve run in some pretty bada$$ conditions, but usually when I have to — and I definitely don’t always want to!
Whew! I thought it was me. 🙂
