No thank you, rain.
Morning run canceled because it’s too rainy. Last week I didn’t mind getting soggy, but that was when I had friends and a nice easy route on the menu! Today I am supposed to do hills and I loathe hills — maybe this evening I’ll have the gusto to tackle them.
Unless I am too busy eating 22 cupcakes.
Last night my roommate brought home a delicious collection of miniature sweetness explosions, all the way from New York! Baked by Melissa makes high-end treats in super dangerously small sizes. AKA you can just keep eating them and think, “oh, but it’s so small!” There are about 7 cupcakes featuring peanut butter so I’m basically in heaven.
I’d like to take a moment and dedicate this post to Nike tempo shorts. They were my first real pair of “running” shorts, and they are the finest pieces of clothing I own.
Over the years I’ve collected quite a family of tempos, ranging from the first generation solid prins to the more recent funkier styles. They’re all wonderful, and all slightly different. I’m totally on board with the tempos from the last couple years, but I do miss the key pocket being on the front side, rather than the rear — does anyone know what I’m taking about?
These shorts are great because they wash easily and hold up after hundreds of miles and gallons of sweat. They have a nice but non-annoying underwear part on the inside (for those who are interested) and, as mentioned, a small little pocket to throw in a small set of keys. They’re short but not too short, snug but not too snug, and, at $28-$34, they’re not too pricey compared to other running gear. The waistband is pure gold — I usually roll mine once, and have only rarely had any issue with chafing. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s difficult to come across fabrics and seams that don’t act up after 10 miles or so! If you were going to watch the morning news you should turn it off and watch this promotional video from Nike instead.
