Friday was kind of awesome. I got to wear jeans to work and leave early (to go to the dentist but whatever.)
After getting my teeth cleaned, I headed to an iconic Orlando store.
The Track Shack!
(Does anyone know how to take a good picture of a plastic bag?)
They are having a sale (that ends on Saturday) that is 20% off everything in the store plus it’s Florida’s tax free weekend. I needed some new shoes and to pick-up my race pack for the Celebration of Running 5K.
This was my first time in the Track Shack and it did not disappoint. What I ended up taking home.
New Asics GT- 2160. I have already run in these twice and they feel so good. I waited much too long to get new shoes.
A larger pouch for my Fuel Belt. It fits my phone perfectly which is great because I like to listen to Sirius when I run and need my phone for that. The longer my runs get, the safer I will feel having my phone. Just in case I end up in a ditch or hurt myself. (Or just to see how fast J will come and get me.)
The BodyGlide is for my horrible armpits. I have had some armpit irritation that is making me mental and have to concentrate not to scratch in public.(I want to apologize to Maria, who sits next to me at work and am sure has caught me scratching.) I used the BodyGlide and I can see an improvement already. I should have purchased this months ago.
I want to try some new nutrition as my runs get longer. So far, I have used Cliff Shot Bloks mainly because they are available at my local Target and nothing else is. I decided to try two flavors of GU and two Cliff Shot Gel’s and see how it goes. From what I can tell, this seems to be a highly personal process and filled with lots of trial and error. If you have any suggestions for me as to your favorite nutrition, I am all ears. What is important is that I do not want tons of chemicals. I try to avoid food coloring, fake sugars, and additives as much as possible in my diet.
All of this for 20% off.
I also picked up this baby.
Should have a race report up tomorrow. First 5K of the season was a lot of fun. I missed racing!
What are some of your favorite running products? Have you started your racing season yet?
