Busy Busy

Happy July!

It has been a busy week and its only Wednesday...thank goodness that I have Friday off for the 4th of July.

I have been slacking majorly on the blogs, but not on purpose. This whole working thing takes up a lot of my life, plus there is my running and after all the other necessities of life (sleep) that doesn't leave much time for reading blogs.

And things aren't going to get any better.

Next week I start summer hours at work, which in fact is a great thing because I will get Fridays off for the rest of the summer. I work 10 hour days, Monday through Thursday. I worked for this company before in college and have already experienced the summer hours thing and its nice but by Thursday night I will be exhausted! So I am sorry in advance if blogging takes a back seat but I will be reading and commenting as best I can.

I bought new shoes yesterday. Usually I just buy whatever shoes I can get for a good price. The pair I am currently wearing now that have been giving me problems were women's asics. The pair before that were men's asics! My shoes right now have about 190 miles on them and I have never had a pair of shoes go kapoot on me this early. So when I went to the store tonight I bought a pair of men's asics and now we will see what happens. Of course it could have been that the current pair of asics were just beat up from running outdoor track but I don't really think that is the case! I'll run in the new shoes tomorrow and see how my knees feel.

On a different note, I wanted to thank Brian (B-rabbit) for getting up before 5am this morning and going to the track with me for 400m repeats. He honestly is the best boyfriend I could ever ask for. I love that he cares so much and always wants to make sure I am safe while running!

I did 10 hour work days last summer and, Yes it's exhausting for 4 days, but having 3 off is soooo nice!

I hope the new shoes work out!! That's funny - I would never think to try Men's shoes! Smart :)

Fridays off! That's awesome, but those days are going to be long.

Good luck with your new shoes!

Um, yeah. Your boyfriend is great to get up with you and make sure you are safe. That is terrific!

I hope the new shoes are what you needed

Brian said...

I have been slacking too. The work/running/blog life balance isnt happening, thats why i stick to twitter during the busy times, hah.

Glad you like your contest prizes! :)
