What to buy?

So the announcement has been made that our economic stimulus packages will be arriving early.  Yay money!  I of course have already started spending it.  🙂  How can I not?  And of course I am spending it on running related stuff.

My first purchase was a running skirt from runningskirts.com.  I have on a previous occassion purchased a running skirt but unfortunately I have a little too much in the booty to wear it.  Just try to picture the skirt fitting nicely in the front then being 2 inches shorter in the back with the compression shorts exposed.  Yeah…not too cute huh?  I decided to make another shirt purchase and try again.  The new one hasn’t arrived yet, but I am sure as soon as it does and I get to try it on and hopefully run in it I will post a review. 

My second purchase as a new pair of walking shoes.  I walk at least 2 miles a day (when I am being good) with the monster in tow and have noticed recently that if my ankle is already a little iffy then walking the dog makes it hurt.  I have had my current walking shoes since October, so I am sure they are shot.  I hit holabirdsports.com and ordered up some new shoes and some new socks.

My third and thus far final purchase were some new hats from headsweats.com.  I already have one of their hats which I recieved for joining the Her Sports running team.  I wear it ALL the time.  It has been through the washing machine probably a dozen times and you can’t tell whatsoever.  With the warm months coming I decided it was time to get some more of them so I can rotate them while the others are in the was.  I got a white one and a pale blue one to match my skirt-for-which-I-have-too-much-booty above.  I figure when I have lost enough weight to wear the skirt I want to look really cute with a matching hat.  😀

I think whatever is left over will be put into my savings account and held there for Disneyland.  I am going there for a race so that makes the entire trip run related right?

I got out yesterday for a 5 mile run.  It was really slow.  I mean realllly slow.  It didn’t help that there were so many other runners out last night showing me exaclty how slow I was.  I think it was because of some bad eating the night before.  I have a love/hate relationship with the fact that my running reminds me that I need to eat well.  Makes me want to eat well and makes me really regret eating bad.

    Sounds like a good list new running items!

    Running and nutrition seem to go hand-in hand and one does seem to inspire the other.

    Keep spending — you know “W” will only be happy if you put every penny into the economy.
