Three Things Thursday....

1. So... looks like I'm running a half marathon in May. :D. I seriously expected to *maybe* eventually hit the $1000 for the half marathon. But in 24 hours, we did this:



I've updated my goal to $2000... at $2000, some chick on my favorite message board wants me to wear something made out of this god awful beautiful fabric...


Awful.

2. Back in December, I posted about this weird wear pattern on the inside of my shoe... and Brooks was kind enough to replace the shoe for me, as it's not normal wear. I've been wearing Brooks for ages, and this is the first time I'd had an issue.
I've had the replacement pair since December, and have run exactly 59 miles in them, and this....

So I emailed Brooks, again, and was told - seriously - I probably just have a weird shaped foot, and they suggest I buy a different style. Really? A weird shaped foot. Thanks, Brooks.

3. Seems I've got a bit of an IT band situation. I meant to ice it yesterday, but it was soooo cold, I couldn't bring myself to it. I'm such a pansy. :D

  3. That's exactly where my sneakers wear every time! But I know for a fact that when I run I tend to clip my feet/ankle bones when I'm tired so it's definitely something I'm doing. :(
