i made it to my third NICU saturday OFF!!

AM indulgence
despite the fact that it is only 8 am, i have already spent ~$100 on:

running shoes: my favorite brooks glycerin 5s are becoming quite scarce. i know i’ll have to try the next edition at some point, but i happened upon some really cheap 5s available only in my size on geardirect. so of course i had to get them.

2 albums:
santogold’s self-titled santogold. she sort of reminds me of m.i.a. and this album seems like it would be great for running. i will test that theory today!
bon iver’s for emma, forever ago is pretty much the opposite of santogold, but it fits the melancholy fall weather perfectly.

i also bought the rihanna song “disturbia”. don’t tell anyone!

plans for today
☑ 11-mile run (not sure if this will be inside or outside)
☑ relaxing post-run yoga
☑ the usual prepping/shopping for next week’s dinners
☑ laundry, stop @ dry cleaner
☑ book hotel for charlotte half marathon
☑ thank you notes & gifts
☑ finally make butternut squash lasanga . . .

at least i got an earlier start this time!

    I like your taste in music. Maybe you could post a workout mix if you have one so I could get some new ideas. I’m so sick of what’s on my Ipod.
