I’ve already done a fair amount of moping around during my 4-6 week layoff from running due to my dodgy ankles. I’ve been doing a decent amount of limping, too, thanks to this behemoth of a brace that severely limits the mobility of my right leg:
Despite being majorly bummed out about having to give up running for at least a month, I’ve been trying to focus on the things that make me smile. Here’s a random sample from the past week:
The Rita Jeptoo MBTA Meme
Explanation here. For those not familiar with the nightmare that is the Green Line….. be glad.
Meb and his reaction to winning the 118th Boston Marathon
A new running club singlet
The other one I have (seen here) was a leftover from an old batch and a women’s XL… good for wearing over hoodies in the winter, but way too big otherwise. The club sent a new order so now I have one in my size, and one that matches all the other current Shammies – huzzah!
A visit to our favorite diner for breakfast on Drew’s birthday
Running store outlet shopping!
Unfortunately New Balance shoes don’t fit too well on my feet, and all the cool gear I liked was only in XL or XXL, so I left without any new kit. Drew, on the other hand…
Someone’s ready for a new season of trail running! Now I just have to get myself a pair and we can hit the trails together (OMG shoes!)
Yummy beverages from an Irish import store
Ah, nostalgia. Delicious, refreshing nostalgia.
Trees and flowers are starting to bloom – finally!
What’s been making you smile this week?
