Yay me! I have been regularly running again since August. It took forever to recover from our Philippine vacation! I did some neighborhood runs between January and August but they were few and far between. I have run 3 races so far, between October 2nd and November 13th. Not bad at all! And after serving me well for over a year, I have finally allowed myself to replace my trusty Asics Gel Nimbus, with a pair of minimalist shoes that hubby swears by, the Saucony Kinvara. These are so last season’s (there’s now a Kinvara 2), but I don’t really care. I love that it’s lightweight! My feet and legs do feel the road more now, but they’re adjusting pretty well to my new pair of shoes.
Hubby and I, I dare say, can no longer be trusted in a sporting goods store with a credit card or cash. It is so tempting to buy running gear! I should stay away even from the pop displays! Haha! Oh well.
Hubby celebrated his birthday last week, Thanksgiving week. That’s one of the reasons why Thanksgiving week is all the more meaningful to our family. Per the birthday boy’s request, I made him a cheesecake, a Fudge Truffle Cheesecake. I could have made blueberry or cappuccino, but I chose a chocolate-y cheesecake. It’s a no-brainer! Hubby got his cheesecake, and I got my chocolate fix! You got me! I’m a chocoholic! Hee hee. I just might need the chocolate counterpart of a methadone detox rehab treatment center. Hee hee.
