New Year Resolutions

Yes I know I haven't written in a while. I was experiencing the ecstasy that was vacation and then wallowing in the first week back to work.

In this time, I've dedicated myself to spinning and running, but no swimming yet. I finally decided to sign up for the Southern California Half Marathon. It's on Saturday. I'm stopping by to register tomorrow. This is in addition to, not instead of, Carlsbad.

I do want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I don't really believe in New Year Resolutions, but I make them anyway. I actually make resolutions many times a year, so all New Year Resolutions mean to me is my gym is packed until mid-Feb and that The Daily Plate servers are overwhelmed. Well here they are:

1. Be the one who reaches out. I always respond to friends who plan things. I tend to go with the flow. I don't want my friends to drift away.

2. Take better care of myself. I don't stretch well after a long run or bike ride. Or any run or bike ride actually.

I also need to keep track of my equipment.

See, Yas was having some hip soreness the days she ran. She was also wondering why her toes would fall asleep on long runs. She had mentioned this to her chiropractor and he says bring in the shoes.

Here they are:

Notice what doesn't belong? Yes, that's my left shoe with pretty much no sole on the outer heel. My right heel isn't quite as bad. I've been running on these off and on because my other shoes were giving me blisters. Funny thing about them, those NB 1224s, they're starting to look the same way.

That gray on the outer left heel (the shoe on the right) shouldn't be there.

I'll be monitoring my shoes more closely in the future. I think the peeps down at Road Runner Sports and Snail's Pace are going to love me.

3. Read more. I like to read, I just don't make the time.

And that's it. Well, that's it for now. Like I said, I make resolutions through out the year.

Here's to 2009!

Yeah, both those shoes are history. I always blame my shoes when I start to have random hip and/or achilles soreness. I'm about there now, but my shoes aren't as worn as yours. I'm just getting the soreness.

So, I want to know what shoes you're going to go to. The first pair look like the (discontinued) Saucony Hurricanes I used to run in. The second pair are the same as my (discontinued) NB1224's.

Wow, you're good. I'm hoping to snap up a pair of the Saucony Hurricanes if the stores still have them.

I hate when the discontinue shoes. I loved the 1223s.
