Run, Fun, Eats

I got some new running shoes from the Amazon fairy - Asics Gel -Strike 2. They're similar to my current pair and were on clearance for $37. I thought they were a little tight, but I took them out for a run today and they were just fabulous. I did five miles with negative splits, which was a  little tougher than I thought it would be. My overall pace was 9:05, but it felt much harder than that.

I celebrated with my new favorite treat, a broiled grapefruit. Just slice it and place it under the broiler for four minutes, then add Splenda and a pinch of cinnamon and broil for another minute.

Alissa came over today to go to my favorite thrift store. They had the 3 for $1 sale again today and I made out like a bandit. All brand names, for a total of $4.28. My big spend was a J. Crew jacket for $1.95, otherwise, everything else was part of sale.

Finally, we went to my parents house for dinner. We celebrated Easter early because my parents live a free-roaming lifestyle now with their trailer and they're not sure if they'll be here for Easter. My mom had an Easter egg hunt and I thought Amanda was going to clothesline me to get more eggs.

My mom made an awesome spread - burgers, brats, potato salad, tuna salad, baked beans. I had to roll myself out of there. Does running five miles this morning offset eating like all the food might disappear?

Now, I'm headed back to bed. I don't know what my issue is, but I went straight to bed when we got home from my mom's. I only got out of bed so I wouldn't wake up at 4 a.m., ready to go. After a few loads of laundry and making my food for tomorrow, I'm all tuckered out again. Good night!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: You are the queen of the deal!

You should come thrifting with me! There's nothing quite like Banana Republic jeans for $.33.

What a fun Easter celebration! I would love doing an adults only egg hunt. Sigh. I have two nephews.

Are those Asics a neutral shoe?

Yes, they are neutral, and I got them mostly because of the clearance sale.
