I love shoes. I don't own a pair of plain ones. There's something about a cute and fun pair of shoes that makes me feel so put together. Do you loves shoes?
And speaking of shoes, I'm going to get new running ones of a different brand. My mileage is almost done on the Asics GT-2000s I got in December, and I think I'm going to switch and jump on the Brooks bandwagon. It seems I'll be the last to join the group, but something about the Brooks Ravenna 4s (cough COLOR cough) made really want to switch. People at the running store said that they're going to be Brooks' version of the GT-2000 and that if I like the GT-2000 (which I do), that I would like these as well. While I want to try a pair of minimalist shoes (that are meant for my gait), I'm just afraid to commit just yet.
For some reason lately I've started making a mental list of things that I'm surprised that I have no interest to do. It's a random list, and I've only got three things on it, but they're things that I feel like many people do want to do or try at some point. The things that I don't have any desire to do are:
1. Go to Australia...(random, I know)
I don't know why, as I really love to travel and can't list many places I don't care to visit, but I just don't care to go there. It's a long plane flight, and I just don't feel like there's anything there worth flying that long for. That might change, but for now, I'm good.
2. Run an ultramarathon.
I know a lot of people who have done them or want to do them, and I just don't. 26.2 is far enough for me. I'll be okay if I never run a mile over 26.61.
3. Run a trail race.
I've heard it's really fun, but I'm so prone to accidents that I just know it would lead to terrible things for me. And even though I live in Florida now, because I'm from Tennessee originally, when I hear trail I think hills and mountains. Hills and mountains aren't my friend when it comes to running.
But hey, if I'm signing up for a trail 50k in Australia in a few years, I guess it's just a change of heart.
And at the same time, I've never really had a bucket list, but there are a couple of things I would like to do. It's kind of a more serious topic than for just a fun post, but there are definitely a few things that I've started to juggle around in my head more lately. I'll share those another day.
Ask me a question!
I want to do a post answering questions you have about me, my life, and my path to running. I asked for questions on twitter and got a couple, but I'd love to know what you want to know about me so I can put a post together for next week. Anything?
In the mean time,
what's your go to running shoe right now?
what's something you don't care to do that you know a lot of people do want to do?
