Time to link up with Amanda for "Thinking Out Loud." If you don't know how it works check out her first post. Basically, it's a chance for you to get all your random thoughts out and then link up with others doing the same.
1. I made a list the other day of something I want in a life partner. I've learned a lot from my past relationships, especially my marriage, and there are some things that I am not willing to negotiate on this time around. Some of the items include sense of humour, kind, patient, romantic and supportive. Although it's not super important I wouldn't mind if they were a runner or, at the very least, passionate about living a healthy and active lifestyle. He also has to be okay with me eating a bag of chips and a dozen sour keys during an episode of the Bachelor though ;)
2. I have five races in the next five weeks. I love this time of year. I love to run but I really love to race. I love everything about it; meeting new friends, seeing how your training paid off and the excitement of race day. I'm doing the Run For Women in Calgary May 24th, then the Half Marathon and 5K distances at the Calgary Marathon May 31st, the 8K Ladiesfest, in Lethbridge, June 6th and then I'm off to Seattle for the Seattle Rock N Roll Half Marathon on June 13th. I'm constantly adding to my list of Upcoming Races.
3. I am in love with my new shoes. A few months ago (before I left for Phoenix) I got a box in the mail from Mizuno Canada. Inside, was a pair of the new Wave Rider 18's, some compression sleeves, socks, leggings, gloves and a toque. The toque is a little small for my head but everything else fits great! I didn't have a chance to break the shoes in, before Phoenix, but I've been training in them ever since. I've been wearing Wave Riders since I first start running and love them! I can't wait to race in them!
