WICKED- The Musical
Going to plays/musicals is a healthy addiction of mine and it has been far too long since my last fix.. I have always wanted to see the musical WICKED. I often listen to the songs on Pandora and have always loved the Wizard of Oz. I have not read the book, but I know that I will truly enjoy the show. Thanks to Craigslist, Tall Sister and I will be seeing the show in Seattle on Saturday!! So excited. Think I may need to go purchase the musical sound track to get ready for the fun..
Holy WOW! I have lost toenails before but my big toe, never. I blame a Half Marathon in wet sneakers, my Big Toe is wicked ugly, wicked blue and wicked painful. I am not sure what to do to help it heal faster, in the mean time I am going to take it easy this week.. which is not good because I have a hard time passing up the Halloween Fun-sized candies. I would post a photo, but I have a strict rule against showing people my ugly toes/feet. I am sure you can use your imagination, wicked gross folks..
My thoughts and prayers go out to those on the East Coast in the wake of Sandy. I have a friend who was planning to run the NYC Marathon this weekend and has cancelled her trip. I am curious if the Marathon will be cancelled. How can they host a Marathon in a city that has gone through so much?
The weather here has been WET WET WET! Rivers are starting to fill and I am thinking that I will need to make friends with the dusty treadmill if this keeps up. Nothing to complain about compared to others for sure...
WICKED- New Shoes
The wonderful folks at Brooks sent me a pair of the NEW Brooks Adrenaline GTS 13's to test. I was hoping to wear them for the Half, but with the wet weather I did not want to ruin sparkly new shoes. Look at these beauties. I took them for a 3 mile test run and will have a full review soon..
WICKED- Cool Boots
If you follow me on Facebook HERE you may have seen my posts about the Brianna ll Northface Boots from Onlineshoes.com. I was sent these boots for review and I was so excited! I would not have picked the style myself, but adding this style to my wardrobe has been pretty cool. I was so inspired by these boots that I wore them for mini Fall photo shoot. here are some of my favorite pictures...
Full length zipper- easy to put on and take off
What Northface says:
- 200g insulation
- Faux fur cuff and upper detail
- Ice Pick™ Technology
- Medial gore panel at upper shaft
- Medial, waterproof zipper
- Northotic™ Footbed
- PrimaLoft® Insulation 200-gram
- Recycled P.E.T. fleece and brushed tricot lining
- TNF Winter Grip™ Rubber Outsole
- Waterproof, BLC-compliant full grain leather upper
The cost is a little high for my not-so-tall budget
Suede is not the ideal fabric for wet WA weather
*****I recommend these boots, if you want to purchase your own pair visit Onlineshoes.com HERE
WICKED- Bad Race pictures
These race photos from Snohomish River Run (which disappeared) make me want to drop 15 pounds stat.. generally I am not overly critical, but I feel like I am starting to look less than athletic...which bums me out. I have not intentionally 'let myself go' but I also have not focused on diet and exercise and this Puffy Tall Mom is the result.. BUMMER!!
I am still over-the-moon excited for Stacie and her 11 year old daughter and her 1st Half Marathon!!! The Race Report is great and warrants readers/comments, head to Impossible is Nothing HERE and read/comment if you can.. Pretty Please!!
WICKED- Inconsistent Mileage
I think that I may be burnt out (or lazy?), based on the crazy inconsistent mileage on Dailymile.com. Look at this....
Hmmmmm.. Thankfully I have Muscle Man to keep me moving, he is so motivated and excited. I have been tired and lacked the running spark...there are reasons which I may share someday. I know that what I really need is a schedule to keep me going. But I also want to take a break.. I am torn... will see what happens. If we are not friends on Dailymile hit me up HERE, would love to share in the doughnut burning adventure together.
