Today was New Shoes day! I bought a new pair of runners a couple of weeks ago, because they had my size and they were on sale. I didn't think I needed new shoes yet, but I bought them knowing that day was going to come soon enough. Well, today was that day. I guess knowing they were there in the closet waiting for me was motivation to put them on :) I also tried out a new running shirt--which Oliver spit up all over immediately before we left. I just wiped it off and wore it anyway. Yep. That is what being a mom is about. Being gross and smelly before stepping out the door.
With some serious spring in my step, little Oliver and I headed out this afternoon. He was fast asleep before I hit the end of my driveway, so I decided to make my run a bit longer to let him enjoy a longer nap (the new cushy shoes probably made me do it). Today's weather was perfect for a run. Even mid-afternoon when I was out there was bearable with the nice breeze. I ran a very hilly 6 miles in 53 minutes. It won't be long before I can get out for some good early morning 10 milers. In due time I suppose I will be ready!
