Land of the Free…Because of the Brave

Happy Memorial Day! I love this saying! I am so thankful for all of those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. (I borrowed this from one of my FB friends. Thanks, Jaime!)


Today I started the Runner’s World Run Streak! 1 down…39 to go! Noel and I did an easy 3 miles in the town closest to our house while the boys chased us down on their bikes. Mark only bonked Noel’s heel twice and mine once. And John only laid his bike down twice. We could take his training wheels off if he could learn how to turn.

I ran in my new booty shorts! I LOVE them! So comfy. They did ride up a little, but they didn’t roll, just rested above my thighs and stayed there. $7 at Walmart. Not online unfortunately though, so you have to enter the dreaded Walmart for these bad boys.

I’m so self conscious about my legs, but as a former chubster, I still have body image issues. The booty shorts got two thumbs up from Noel who said my legs looked awesome in them. I think this also might have been my first actual run in my Runner Girl top that I got at the Prairie Fire expo. I want to get the safety neon green one too and have my twitter handle screen printed on the back.

It’s an honor to be loved and adored and groped this much by this man. He’s a neon addict too. 🙂 His top is from Target. He has a hot pink one too. I’m pretty sure he has more pink in his running clothes than I do!

After our run, we got cleaned up, ate lunch, and headed into town. We hit up GoRun because they were having a sale. We can’t pass up a run store with a sale. It ended up being a win because they had marked the Saucony milestone tees 30% off. I’ve been drooling over the 13.1 one since I saw it on Another Mother Runner, but it’s hard for me to justify $35 for a running tee. $20 however…I can do!

We also got Noel a GoRun singlet to match my purple one that I bought last summer after my first non-stop 3 mile run and I declared myself a real runner. Now we can match for the Couple’s Classic next month!

We also made the monthly Sam’s Club trip and stocked up on chicken, broccoli, goodies for the boys’ summer food bins, and large quantities of k-cups and peanut butter. You know…the usual Sam’s Club purchases of a runner family.

What did you do today?

Who else is doing the RW Runstreak?
