Well, in spite of his reversal (at least part of the time), I must admit - I've purchased three more pairs of real running shorts since we began this discussion - to experiment, of course - different brands and different colors. It's nice to break out of the black and navy blue syndrome for a change... the 'happy colors' seem to make running more fun! And 5 Miles 2 Empty's skivvy primer a few days ago was priceless. (Thanks for that, especially the part about... well, nevermind... you know what I mean....) All of that said, I'm loving my new-found freedom... it's boundless, or would that be bindless??? btw - no spandex for this girl, not just yet anyway. Maybe after a TON more miles and stairs. My office is on the 6th floor - I've figured out my silver lining to being back to work FT.... you got it! Avoid those elevators. Whew!
I realized late today that it's Thursday already, and I completely forgot to post a Wednesday Inspiration story (oops!), so I will catch up this weekend - in between running, shopping for more shorts (hee hee... I'm addicted!), and making black bean brownies. Yep - you read that correctly. Check out my Tuesday post over at Eating Good Stuff if you're interested. We've been talking about beans this week on that blog, and I'll be experimenting in the kitchen this weekend. I'll let you know my verdict..... (supposedly, they are fabulous!)
Headed to bed since it's a 'school night' - will catch up on all my writing this (long) weekend while the hubby (aka The Gamer) shoots bad guys, races virtual cars, and builds things...Can you say "Call of Duty".... TGIF, everybody!
