Is it really Thursday? This week has gone by so fast!
Anyway, using Random.org, the winner of my Sweaty Bands Headband giveaway is…
My favorite fall dish is probably pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese icing. Does that count as a dish exactly? Oh well, it’s delicious!
Last night, I got to run with Newton Running…well, kinda!
I tried on the shoes they were testing out, and personally, they did not feel good on my feet. I wasn’t a fan of the Energy. Don’t get me wrong, I bet it’s a great shoe! But on my foot I just didn’t like it.
Thank you, Josh, who came out to Trak Shak in Homewood to let us take a look!
My mom and dad tried on the Gravity (neutral shoe) and they liked it so they ran 5 miles in that.
I ran 5 miles in my own shoes. BOO!
I ran very well though with the heat, so pretty proud of myself.
I was running 8:45 pace after the 1 mile and felt awesome and right before the 2.5 mile water stop, I was just so HOT, so slowed down a bit! Alabama heat <<<<
Tried to keep a 9 min pace but I kept slowing down, getting faster, slowing down…so it was just messy. But I only stopped once (the water stop)! Building up that endurance for half marathon, baby!
When I got back from my run though, I did try on the Newton Motion, which I really liked! Wish they would have had a pair for me to test out. I’ve been wanting to try Newton Running shoes for a while and the Motion has been in the back of my mind.
I need this shoe for my upcoming Fall races. I would love to be able to share my experience with the shoe with you all.
You bet I stopped at O’Henry’s to get an iced coffee! With almond milk! Thank you for having Almond Milk.
If you live in Birmingham, O’Henry’s will have their Pumpkin Spice Lattes out September 18, next Tuesday! They tweeted @ me! Hehe
@AudreyRuns September 18th is the day!!!
And they have their own Pumpkin Spice coffee you can buy! The lady working told me it was delicious!
By the way, I’m not taking a picture of the car…but of the people at Trak Shak in the distance. If you squint really hard, you can see them. Most of them were sitting.
Oh, and had another Beet & Feta sandwich when I got home…
Have a great Thursday!
- Do you run in Newton’s? If not, what shoe do you run in?
- Favorite drink at a local Coffee shop? (I love O’Henry’s Chai Tea Latte!)
