I woke up around 8:00 with oatmeal on my mind. I made pumpkin oats with canned pumpkin, raisins, walnuts, chia seeds, and a big scoop of Teddie peanut butter. It was just what I wanted. I slowly savored my breakfast while catching up with my favorite blogs this morning.
I also drank a glass of eggnog-flavored coffee with breakfast.
After breakfast, I got down to business. I have a busy week ahead of me, so spent most of the morning tackling my To Do list, which included buying a new pair of sneakers.
When I first started marathon training, I got a new pair of sneakers (New Balance 759), which I immediately fell in love with. They’re lightweight, supportive, and have carried me through many weeks of training. The 759’s are one of the best sneakers I’ve ever owned. But, nearly four months later, they’re starting to get really worn out. I’m just about at the end of training, so I really don’t want to take a chance getting injured because of old sneakers. So, this morning, I scoured the internet for the best deal I could find on these babies.
Thanks to the powers of Twitter, Heather told me about a great website called Running Warehouse that has all sort of amazing deals, including the 759’s, which were $30 cheaper than I found elsewhere. AND I got free shipping as well as a free long sleeve running shirt with my order. Best website ever! 😀
I really love a good deal. I’m in the best mood now!
Back to work I go!
