Tomorrow Is Race Day and My Shoes are Falling Apart!!!!!

“I don’t run to add days to my life, I run to add life to my days.”

ImageI ran five whole miles this week..  I am in desperate need of some new shoes!!!!!  I figured it out and I have about 600 miles on each of my shoes I bought last year…ouch!!!!!  I am running my ninth half marathon tomorrow.  So my goal is to get some new shoes before my tenth half marathon…but I have nooooooooo idea what to get so please help me!!!!!!

Today I lost a toe nail.  It was gross and black and in my 8 years of running has never happened.  Last night I went for a bike ride and decided to go for a run after.  Well, I get about a mile into it and my ankle is killing me.  So I ran home.  Today I stretched and ran two and a half miles and my ankle still bothered me.  I am crossing my fingers it isn’t going to get worse.  This would really make my race season suck!


ImageI had a great ride yesterday. marathon9bikeride I actually had an amazing ride!!!!! I want to go again but I should not ride until after the race tomorrow!!!!  I did really good on the climbs and I think I am a good climber.  It started to rain, but that is fine.  I loved the ride so much I did not care….I think I get faster as I keep going even with the hills lol.


ImageSo why am I taking a selfie?????  I am sad my toe nail fell off and my ankle is bothering me ha ha…I have been cleaning all day and tending house lol…I feel like I need to be uplifted so I am sticking to that article about taking a picture to feel “beautiful.” 

I went out to brunch and had some great coffee at a place called “Pewter Lane,” which is in Cazenovia.  I wish I could move because Chittenango, Oneida, and Cazenovia are so nice…but I like my little balcony and it is a good place I live in.  I can’t wait to have a house someday…in the meantime, I will wish for new shoes that do not suck!!!!!!!

Wish me luck tomorrow….I do not want to have any issues…thank you Tylenol ahead of time….ughhhhhhhh I want to bike so bad…why do I race????  I need some good bike races…


Please send me some bike races and good shoe ideas??? LIGHT WEIGHT PLEASSSSSSSE!!!!!!!

  1. Ouch to your toenail and good luck tomorrow!!! You can do it!!! I hope your ankle starts feeling better!! I’m sure it will!! I’m so happy you’re loving biking!! Sounds fun!!

    1. I might be loving it a lot more than running soon if my ankle doesn’t stop bothering me…I just need some new shoes but I have tried saucony kinvara, brooks pure connect and pure cadence and they are too stiff and heavy…I need something that is super light and flexible…I like to have a lot of motion when I run and cant feel like my feet are stuck in place…I have also tried asics and hateeee them and I have tried mizumo and the wave inspire were not horrible but I want my brooks green silence!!!!!!!!
