Things happening…

A couple of cool things have happened this week. They all made me smile.

My Bupa 10,000 race pack

First, I received my Bupa 10,000 race pack. The envelope was pretty thick and I got kind of excited what might be in there… My race bib of course, my timing chip and really thick race magazine and a plastic bag to store my stuff in during the race and drop off. The bag made the envelope so thick. So, no mystery t-shirt (as I was secretly hoping). I nearly forgot about this race as I am counting down to my trip to San Diego in 2 weeks.

Second thing that happened this week. Finally, I succeeded in purchasing tickets for the Olympic games. I have been really unlucky with tickets and was close to giving up, but NO! I am now going to see 2 hockey games. I have never seen a hockey game, therefore I can finally get this off my bucket list. Not sure which teams I’ll be seeing, but I am secretly hoping for Canada (and Germany of course).

Newton Gravity Ladies Neutral

Third, I bought a pair of Newton’s running shoes (Newton Gravity) back at the Edinburgh race expo. Since it has been raining pretty much ever since, I had never taken them out. Today I took them for a spin! I’ll tell you more about how I like them when I started running a little more in them after the San Diego Half Marathon. They do look cool though!

Last, I just found out that there is a second chance for the Nike Women’s Marathon entry starting next week. No idea what that second chance is, but I will be keeping an eye out on the NWM 26.2 Facebook page.

I am kind of excited now. I think the smiles have me back (the rain started to wear on me). Might be of course because I also went for not one, but two runs today. 🙂

Keep running!
