Three Things Thursday ...

It's Three Things Thursday ...

1. I had a change of plans today and wasn't able to meet up with G for our run this morning (hopefully next week, G). But, I still wanted to get a quick run in before I picked the girls up from school. So, I hopped on the treadmill for the two fastest miles of my life. 14:50! Yes, you read that correctly, 7:25 pace. And since you are wondering what I look like after such blazing speed, here you go (rocking the Bondi Band that Katye sent me)...
2. I'm beginning to believe that I am a mid-foot striker. After reading Zoe's post about her Newton shoes, I realized that my wear pattern is pretty much identical to hers. The heal is perfectly intact, and the ball of my foot and plastic support at the arch are beat to heck. Here, take a look. Now, I am really interested in trying out a pair of Newtons.

3. I got to spend the entire morning with this little ball of cuteness (she's getting over the Chicken Pox) ... How could that not make you smile?

Nice work! I'd asgree you are a midfoot striker. Give the Newtons a try but be careful. I love my originals, the Isaacs not so much.
Oh no Chix pox! tis the season. She's so cute!

Awesome run!! And everyone seems to be talking about what kind of striker they are lately. I just might have to join in and analyze my own running!

Jill said...

She certainly brought a big smile to my face.

Alicia said...

Whoa! I don't even think I could hold that pace for 1 mile! Great job!

Hmm, I ordered Bondi Bands from Katye, too. Hope they come soon! You are adorable in yours, by the way. :)

Bummer, Chicken Pox, don't look like it has put a damper on her mood. I am super out of the loop, I had to google Bondi Bands. There were a couple cutesy saying ones I loved so I placed an order. Hope they are as functional as they are fun.

Michelle said...

Great job on the run! I need one of those Bondi Bands!

Cute picture of the little one! Sorry about the chick pox.

I must confess the James River was my favorite part of the Richmond marathon! (The Bridge 'O Headwinds was NOT).

Bermuda?? Done. I'll start looking up tickets for my running vacation!
