I got my first bonus for my new position this past week, and I told myself that this was the only one I was going to spend frivolously, and I did.
Almost all of the stuff in those two bags are for running. Except the Walmart bag, that has a Bills shirt that I needed for work, and something else, but I forget what- obviously not important.
Now, I know that
most of you none of you, are probably wondering why I didn’t buy actual clothing, since I need it. The answer is I didn’t want to, and some how I convinced myself I needed this stuff too. And I also had a really good motivated sales guy when I went in to buy shoes.
I wasn’t going to buy two watches, I bought the fancy GPS watch for when I’m running through NJ and need to know how far I’ve gone. I was being practical. The other one I bought not for $31.99, but for $5 at the Goodwill, so I can use that when I can’t figure out my fancy one. And after almost throwing the GPS one at a wall- the cheap watch also seems to be a practical buy.
The GPS watch is by Soleus; who apparently used to make Nike watches. It does what I need it to do, er.. I think, I haven’t used it yet. It’s supposed to give me splits and all that jazz. Until I found this video, 10 minutes ago, I was going to return it.
When I came home with all this GU, Pat became concerned that; 1) I lost my mind or 2) GU was going out of business. The first conclusion would be correct.
Nuun is one of our sponsors for RTB, I wanted to check it out first, because apparently I’m the last person on the planet to use it (or at least on my team). I needed to see how it would sit in my stomach, before I drank a million gallons.
This is what I found out:
- It’s delicious
- It worked better than Gatorade
- It’s delicious
Socks. Boring but necessary.
Meet my new best friend…
You use it in lieu of a Foam Roller to get out any knots of sore spots. It’s wonderful and I may marry it.
Before I went to Fleet Feet, I had every intention of buying these gorgeous riding boots.
But then I bought these instead…
Brooks PureFlow – they’re nice and light like my last shoes, and they function, primarily, the same. They’re like an upgraded version of the Nike Free Run’s, which is great, they make my feet happy. It was time to take the next step in my relationship with running shoes, I think we moved in the right direction.
Also, fun fact, I found out my right foot is 3/4 of a size bigger than my left. How I didn’t notice before, I’m not sure, but numbers don’t lie.
As I try these things out I’ll be letting you know more about them. I’m sure that, once again, I’m way behind the times and these are old news; but old news is better than no news….right?
What did you do this weekend?
Have you used any of these products before?
Did I throw away money?
