I always get excited when I start my Thinking Out Loud posts because it means the weekend is in sight!
-It reminds me of college when I used to go out on Thursday nights and convinced myself that it was the start of the weekend. It always made for a struggle on Friday but it was something to look forward to each week. However, now I’m an adult and don’t go out binge drinking 3+ nights a week. Instead I sit on my couch and drink wine several nights a week- much more acceptable. Plus there is no hangover involved and I can wear sweatpants (and compression socks).
-As I talked about on Tuesday the peak weeks in training can be time consuming. Life has been pretty busy lately plus I’m working longer hours at work so I think I’ll be cutting back on blogging for a bit. While I could probably keep posting every day, I know I won’t have the time respond to comments and read other blogs, or put any real thought into what I’m doing.
-I ordered the new PRO Compression Elite marathon socks a few days ago and I can’t wait to try them! I have heard great things already.
-Speaking of socks, I’ve been wearing my new Injinji socks over the past week. I know a lot of people asked how I like them, and so far they are comfortable. I’ll probably need to wear them a few more times before I can give a solid report though!
-Rob and I are trying to plan a weekend in DC to celebrate our 3 year anniversary in November. Let me know if you have any recommendations of places to stay, places to run, things to do, etc!
-I’ve been in total denial about the fact that I turn 32 on Monday. As I said last year, I don’t really like my birthday but I’m trying to make the best of it. I think it just scares me each time another year goes by faster than the one before. By the way, it’s really interesting how many people enter search terms that send them to that post (“What does turning 31 mean to me?“). Apparently other people are confused about what it means to turn 31.
What are some habits that make you feel like an adult?
What are you favorite running socks?
How do you feel about your birthday?
