Yesterday, I got an email that I’d won the lottery.
And it wasn’t spam.
Nor was I winning money. I actually won a lottery that required me to payÂ money.
Still not spam.
I won the lottery for my hometown tri.Â
I’m actually surprised that there’s even a lottery, but whatever.
I’m excited for a redemption tri, and I have some very specific goals in mind.
- Don’t get a flat tire.
- Place in the top 10 in my age group. (As it’s such a small field, I think this is possible.)
- Run the 5-miler in less than 42 minutes.
- Beat people I know. I’m not usually that competitive, and there’s usually a big, competitive field in most races I run in, but I’m pretty sure I can unleash some fierceness in my hometown. Thinking about this makes me wonder how much more competitive I’d be if I lived in a smaller town. I think I’d focus on one person I wanted to beat.
This bag officially puts me at half workout clothes in my dresser*. Below are the ones I’m most excited to try.
I tried out these pants on a 6-miler with AshleyÂ this morning and at 30/60/90 the other night, and I really like them. They stay put and are just as flattering in the midsection as my Wunder Unders. (Ashley and I also showed up in matching New Balance tops, which was only slightly awkward.)
(GratuitousÂ Central Park in the morning shot.)
This is New Balance’s equivalent of a Garmin–I’m excited to see how it compares!
I suspect I ended up with bright yellow ones because of my abnormally-big-feet-for-5’5″. (I’m a 10.5 in running shoes–I never grew into my feet.) I tried them this morning, too, and while I need to run in them more to really formulate an opinion–so far, so good. They were nice and cushion-y and nothing hurt in them.
