Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist
Aha! Managed to score some Bikilas from TravelCountry.com [links via birthdayShoes.com]. Yay! I think my feet will be happier. With all the extra running lately, I've almost worn completely through the soles of my Sprints.

And I think my feet have been noticing. The balls of my feet have been more tender after runs lately with all the rocks.
So, I'm hoping this alleviates some of the issues I've had making longer distance insofar as my feet getting so sore it's hard to walk on them.

I am, however, sad to think of not running in my bright-red Sprints any more. :( I will, at least, repair the ripped seams and wear them out until they fall apart.

Ran the UW Arboretum yesterday. 8.5 miles in some of the most spectacular weather we've had this summer. Minus the obscene number of Mayflies and mosquitoes I pulled off my head, it was a lovely run. I ran through 3 flocks of turkey, a few Doe + Baby groups and a whole bunch of itty bitty baby bunnies.

94 miles this month. 6 more in the next two days to hit 100 miles this month. And it looks like either I do it tomorrow morning or skip the late work night currently scheduled.
Not sure which is the better option....

Current Mood: optimistic optimistic

Much as I will miss Wings and Trivia, you CAN go tonight, if you really need to.

No no, I will buy an alarm tonight and do it in the morning, damn it. If I have control over the alarm, I will get up. I didn't even hear yours this morning.

How many miles have you run this month, Mr. Pot?

I'll probably break 50 this month. *shrug*

I tried on a pair of Bikilas at Morgan's Shoes today. They're interesting. Still not sure how I feel about the thicker sole. I like being able to feel the ground pretty well.

I wound up not getting them because they're white. White shoes and me don't go together well at all.

that bugs me too, the color. I want bright-frigin' red running shoes like my Sprints!
