Oh, look at my pretties

Aren't they divine??

My new running shoes are on their way! I found a great deal online on the Mizuno Wave Alchemy's that I am in love with. (Thank you to everyone who suggested looking online. I really do like to support the local running store, but in this economy I really need to get things as inexpensively as possible.) These are version 8 (mine are only version 6) and I got them on sale for less than $80! And no tax or shipping fees! They retail for $100 normally, so I feel like I got a good deal. And I didn't have to drive anywhere!! I should see my much-needed new kicks in the next week or two. :-)

There is a race I want to do next year. It's called the Shamrock'n Half Marathon, and it's in Sacramento. My parents live near SacTown, so it's totally doable. They say it's a flat course, near the banks of the Sacramento River. I am just dying to do another HM, and this one really sounds exciting to me! I should know in the next day or two if I'm going to register (I really, really want to!!).

OK, that's it for now. I haven't worked out yet today, but am planning to use the elliptical tonight. I'll post stats later.

Tonight's stats:
Time: 30 minutes

Nice! I need new ones too..

Do it, DO IT!!!

No pressure ;)

Nice shoes. I like to support locally too but my local store is terribly overpriced. Times are tough right now and if I can save $20 on shoes, I gotta do what I gotta do.
