Three Things Thursday

1. Tuesday night I went to running club practice like usual.  I wore my newest Brooks Ghost 3 shoes and felt fine although my overall pace for the 8 miles was a bit fast.  Wednesday morning I was up at 5am for an easy run and wore my old Asics 2150s.  And I had knee pain. UGGHH.  There are a lot of reasons that I could be feeling pain, but I am hoping it is just the shoes.  These babies have 603 miles on them and I have been using them on and off since July 2010.  It is time for them to enter permanent retirement.


2. Saturday morning I am running another 5k.  Quite possibly my last 5k and last race of 2011. I haven't decided if I will actually race this race yet.  I just hope that my registration is all in order because last week I got a letter in the mail saying they had lost my registration but had my check. I think I know what happened - I registered under my married name with my married address, but my checks still say my maiden name with my maiden address.  It's like I have two identities!  Hopefully everything is straightened out now.


3. Daylight savings time is this weekend! I can't wait for at least a few weeks of lighter mornings.  Currently the sun is rising on my way to work at.  I maybe slightly obsessed with colorful sunrises/sunsets.


Good luck to everyone racing NYCM this weekend! Happy Thursday!

my brain cannot wrap itself around it being day light savings time!!

I only get 200 miles out of my shoes. Retire those puppies ASAP!!! I love that we get more light in the morning, too, but I am always surprised at how that extra light is gone within like 3-4 weeks.

That is a lot of miles! I think mine would definitely be worn out by then. They usually last me anywhere from 400 - 500 miles.

I am torn on daylight savings time. Excited to have light in the morning, not excited it's going to be pitch black when I leave work now :(

Very excited about daylight savings, especially with a Sunday morning race! :)

Good luck at the 5K, and I hope your knee is okay!

Good luck at the 5K! Actually I was planning on running this race. But by the time I go around to signing up for it, I realized that I missed the shirt deadline for a day. So I left it, thinking that I'd think about it. Now, it doesn't seem like I'd be able to do it. :( How unfortunate, I would have loved to say hi afterwards.

I'm so ready for it to be light in the morning... but not dark at 5pm :(
