Two days in a row, guys. I woke up early not one, but two days in a row so that I could run before work. This hasn’t happened in months. Yesterday I set my alarm for 4:30am. Stupid early, I know. I’m not even joking when I say that it took me almost an hour to actually get dressed and walk to my basement (that’s where the treadmill is). I debated going back to sleep at least 64 times but I didn’t. I hopped on that ‘mill and managed a weak 4 miles. Actually, 3.5 with a .5 mile cool-down. That’s how much I hate the treadmill. I wanted to go 6-7 miles and as soon as I started running I was like, “nope, not happening.” Better than nothing I guess…right?
Today I didn’t have to be at work until 11am (yay for half days) so I got to “sleep in” until 6am, took my time to get ready, and then headed out for 6 sunrise miles.
I wanted to test out these new Mizuno featherweight tights that I got (I plan to wear them for this Sunday’s Road 2 Hope Hamilton Half Marathon). After what happened last year, I didn’t want to try anything new on race day! It’s officially that time of year again. Time to pack up and put away all of my running shorts and bring out the tights. I’ve said it a bunch of times before and I’ll say it again – I hate pants. I am just not as comfortable running in them or even just wearing them on a daily basis (unless they are cozy track pants). I think that’s a sign that I need to move somewhere where it’s hot all year round.
Pretty sure that’s me.
Since it’s Thinking Out Loud Thursday, I can just list a bunch of other random things besides me hating pants and you won’t question my reasoning, right? Good.

I like the way that looks.
My new shirt from Buy Me Brunch:
Love. Love. Love. Burritos. –> like you didn’t know…
My current iPhone wallpaper:
I could be having the worst day in the history of ever but as soon as I see that face…#allthesmiles
Aaaaannnnd it’s also that time of year that I’m not a huge fan of: Halloween. I just don’t get it. Maybe it’s because I don’t have kids but it’s gotta be my least favourite holiday. I’ve never really been into the decorations or the dressing up. The candy? Yes, but I can just go buy a box for myself and call it a night. Better yet – buy it the day AFTER Halloween and I bet it’ll be on sale…
If you do love Halloween, I wish you a safe and happy holiday!!
Things have been quiet around here but hopefully will pick up soon. I’ve been a little busy trying to knock a lot of things off my to-do list over the last few days. I’m finally making progress though so I’ll be back to normal in no time!
Hope you had a great day!
