A lot of the blogs I read do a "Three Things Thursday" so I figured I'd join the bandwagon. Here are my three:
1. Today is Connor's 2nd Birthday! For those of you that don't know him, Connor is a very happy little boy, and by "little" I mean he is very small for his age. Connor's favorite things in the world are Mickey Mouse, trains, hats, and shoes. He's always smiling, and loves to play and explore new things.
2. I signed up for the Army 10 Miler. Yeah, I know, I posted about this already, but I wanted to add to it. When I first started this blog, I mentioned that I've always wanted to run a marathon, and this latest adventure into running was going to lead up to me running the Baltimore Marathon. Since that time, I've decided that it might be too lofty of a goal at this point. I considered running a half, but when I saw this one, I knew it would be the one.
It takes place in DC, and I've become very familiar with DC after spending nearly a year working a service route in DC. I enjoy being around The Mall area, and the scenery would be great. Plus, I work for The Army.
I still have a full marathon as a goal, just not for 2010. We'll see how the rest of this year plays out.
3. Running shoes. I've been researching a new pair of running shoes, and let me tell you, it's not going well. I've been told by a running shoe store that my current shoe is good for my feet. Reading up on this, it appears that is not true. I have very high arches, I am a supinator (sounds like I should go to jail for something doesn't it?), and have prior medical issues, so it's not an easy choice. Besides, after spending the $55 for the Army 10 Miler, and about to spend another $55 for our Family Fitness Run at the end of the month, I really don't feel like spending $100 for a pair of shoes.
I'll keep ya informed!
